Warts and all.
19 July 2000 | by (Wales, U.K.) – See all my reviews

An excellent warts and all docu-bio of the legendary Californian surf band, told by the members themselves. From the very beginning, all the way to drummer Dennis Wilson's untimely death. A mixture of vintage concert footage, interviews, film clips and narration by those concerned. Well worth an hour and three quarters of your life.
