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

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

    Journeys, shot on the last two nights of Young's 2011 solo world tour, is essential Neil Young.

    With its one-of-a-kind poetic lamentation, Young's voice sounds more peculiarly lovely than ever. A small picture, but good and true.

    Half of one song is performed with a speck of saliva on the camera. More casual fans will twist in their chairs uncomfortably, wishing that a roadie would walk up and wipe it off. Neil Young die-hards will cherish the spittle.

    The nicest thing I can think of to say about the doc Neil Young Journeys is that at least it isn't in 3-D.

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 !! Expand
