“Beach Boys: Surfin' Success” is a 2013 documentary about the 60’s pop group The Beach Boys. The band formed in California and consisted of brothers Brian, Dennis, and Carl Wilson; their cousin Mike Love and their friend Al Jardine. They are considered to be one of the most influential groups of all time influencing artists for decades with hit songs such as “Good Vibrations”, “Wouldn’t it be Nice”, “I Get Around” and the line-up is considered to be the beginnings of the modern “boy band” we see today.
This Beach Boys documentary directed by Richard Driscoll who has been dubbed “Britains worst filmmaker” (source) follows the life story through music and archive footage. It shows how their work transformed surf culture and paved the way for the massive psychedelic movement in the mid-1960’s as well as painting a picture of each member. Something few documentaries have done.
