Neil Young Journeys

Rated PG 87 min. 2012

Jonathan Demme's third concert film starring Neil Young lives up to its title, inviting fans to sit back and enjoy the guided ride. It all starts with the singer-songwriter driving around his birth home of Omemee, Ontario, as he points out the local landmarks he remembers from his childhood. Then Young is onstage, strumming an acoustic guitar at the venue where he got his start, Toronto's Massey Hall. And for the rest of the movie, the setting switches back and forth between these two scenes: Young's physical journey through his hometown and his musical journey through his music. As he travels through his past, he reveals a glimpse of the man behind all those classic songs; he's nostalgic, sweet, and funny. But he's even better when he's onstage, giving terrific solo performances of favorites like "Ohio" and "Down by the River." Aside from a few uncomfortably close camera shots, Neil Young Journeys proves that beneath this enigmatic artist beats a genuine heart of gold.
