    This time around, the director documents a 2011 Young solo show in Toronto (the musician's birthplace), but in an intentionally fractured way.

    The heart of any concert movie is the concert itself, and in the case of Neil Young Journeys, it's a great one.

    Mr. Young's passionate cracked whine assumes an oracular power.

    It certainly stays alive in this spare and intriguing film directed by Jonathan Demme, who has helmed two previous Young concert films.

    Neil Young as Norma Desmond ?? How does it go…..“…..all you wonderful people out there in the dark”….and ......“mercifully the fantasy now engulfed her”….. Megalomania seems to have taken over a terrific musician and song writer who now appears more inclined to guru-hood and a “fire walk with me” attitude. Also definitely lose the hat Neil !!

    One of the worst movies ever. 20 minutes of Neil's chin hair with spit on the camera lens. Buy the soundtrack. Great confidence booster for student film makers. Full Review »
