FILMS & VIDEOS

NOTE:  The Beach Boys began their film career as most stars of the sixties did - with obligatory appearances in surf and kiddie films and one surprising art-film acting foray by band sex-symbol Dennis Wilson.  There's also a couple of obligatory tele-films, some nice documentaries, a few live concerts, the reverential homages and all-star tributes, and, of course, the pirated rip-offs which attempt to simply cash-in on The Beach Boys name.  For some reason, the start of the new century heralded a flood of new films and dvds about the band, which is a good thing.  Of especial note and quality are Brian Wilson's recent DVD releases, which are lushly-produced, in-depth looks at his late-period works and legacy.
