The director of a new documentary about Brian Wilson convinced he had failed after struggling to get a famous musician to open his heart.
Both Fine and Brent Wilson discussed how they managed to get Wilson to give answers that were longer than the one-word answers he was usually known for.
“The third time, we filmed it at his house and it was really horrible,” says Brent Wilson. “I will fail. I will never work again. I was making a movie about Brian Wilson and Brian Wilson didn’t talk. ”
He added: “There were a lot of days when we had nothing, but after a while I realized that Brian grew up with two brothers, he was in a band his whole life and he was the one to love. stay with them. It started working when he was just hanging out with Jason.”
Fine suggests that he might be able to relate to Wilson because he grew up in the world the musician had captured in his music, in southern California during the Seventies and Eighties.
“I love the beach, but I also feel alienated from that culture and spend a lot of time in my room,” he says. “I related to Brian as someone in the same situation and I think that helped.”
In the same interview, Wilson gave brief answers about his drug use, and the effect The Ronettes’ “Be My Baby” had on him.
