Love & Mercy Reviews

October 11, 2017
Love & Mercy captures the battered soul of the man, wounded first by an abusive father and later by the father figure he puts in his place. The two performances are equally strong.

We're shown so many symptoms that, regardless of which actor is playing the hero, there's little relief from the prevailing grimness, and less sense of a life in full.

When you consider all the ways that "Love & Mercy" could have gone terribly wrong, and how full of life it is in the end (and, yes, of love and mercy), I think the end product is almost miraculous.

Unnerving as it is thrilling, as visually and aurally vivid as it is emotionally harrowing.

Dano and Cusack never let us forget that Wilson is human before he is anything else - genius, icon, legend.

The performances are universally great, and the subject matter is captivating.
