This week’s question: What’s your favorite Rock n’ Roll biography?
Anton Corbijn’s Control follows the life and death of Joy Division’s Ian Curtis in stunning black and white. Bill Pohlad’s Love and Mercy tracks two different period’s of The Beach Boys’ Brian Wilson’s life: the making of the masterpiece Pet Sounds in the 60s and the parting of ways with his controlling therapist in the 80s.
This is what Reel 13 host Richard Peña thinks, “If you haven’t seen Christopher Munch’s brilliant gloss of John Lennon, The Hours and Times, please do so immediately. And I’d be curious to see Oliver Stone’s film on The Doors again.”
