A wonderful look into the making of the ill-fated album "Smile", an album that was intended to be Beach Boy Brian Wilson's magnum opus. The project collapsed due to many factors, but years later, in 2003, Brian resurrected the project. The film looks at his early years and a brief history of The Beach Boys. After covering "Smile" and Brian's breakdown in early 1967, the documentary moves ahead to the mid-90s and then details the recording of the 2004 "Smile". One small gripe I had was that they didn't mention "Smiley Smile", the album that was released instead, in late 1967. Still, it's a very good documentary and a fascinating look into Brian Wilson's life, his relationship with his father, the band and Van Dyke Parks.
