Love & Mercy (2014 - dir. Bill Pohlad). As conceived & written by veteran filmmaker Oren Moverman, the fact-based LOVE & MERCY intercuts two tracks of Brian Wilson’s life. In so doing, LOVE & MERCY achieves the improbable: make a music biopic circa 2015 fresh and interesting. Beach Boys!
Marvin Gaye - One of the most gifted, visionary, and enduring talents ever launched into orbit by the Motown hit machine, Marvin Gaye blazed the trail for the continued evolution of popular black music. Moving from lean, powerful R & B, to stylish, sophisticated soul, to finally arrive at an intensely political and personal form of artistic self-expression, his work not only redefined soul music as a creative force but also expanded its impact as an agent for social change.
