The Beach Boys: An American Band
This documentary was authorized by the Beach Boys (and their lawyers, more than likely), so the film steers clear of the band's already well-publicized internal problems, focusing solely on their music. The band is covered (via live concert footage and clips from TV variety shows and specials) from their early years up until the mid-'80s. Also shown are some clips from the movies they appeared in, such as Girls on the Beach, and some footage that was cut from The T.A.M.I. Show. Brian Wilson is interviewed (in his bed) from a 1976 television special, and there is also some footage from a German and a Czech concert tour. ~ Brian Gusse, Rovi

Brian Wilson: I Just Wasn't Made for These Times
The odd genius of former Beach Boys leader and acclaimed singer, songwriter, and producer Brian Wilson is the subject of this black-and-white documentary by famed fellow musician and record producer Don Was. The film closely examines the innovation inherent in Wilson's songs and consists mainly of interviews and new performance footage. It also examines the ways in which his life experiences influenced his music. While some mention is made of Wilson's turbulent personal life -- and interviews with his daughters and ex-wife are included along with many musical clips -- the focus is squarely on his musical innovations. ~ Judd Blaise, Rovi
