Brian Wilson: I Just Wasn't Made for These Times is a 1995 biographical musical film directed by Don Was, centered on Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. The documentary examines the ups and downs of Wilson's life, including the early years of the Beach Boys, his years of substance abuse, and his long road to recovery through interviews with Brian and the Wilson family. A soundtrack, I Just Wasn't Made for These Times, accompanied its release.
For the 2014 biopic Love & Mercy, director Bill Pohlad cast John Cusack as Wilson based on the real Wilson's mannerisms and appearance in I Just Wasn't Made for These Times. Cusack later recommended the biopic as a "companion piece" to the documentary.
