Contempt for corruption, love of the environment, respect for our elders-this Neil Young film sums up what he's been singing about for decades. He and Crazy Horse perform Devil's Sidewalk; Falling from Above; Be the Rain , and more, and the film's characters lip-sync his lyrics in this boldly creative work by one of America's most fearless and enduring artists. DVD bonuses: interviews with Neil, a "making-of" and live performances of three Greendale songs!
Cinematographer, occasional film director, and, yes, longtime rock star Neil Young personally made (under the silly pseudonym Bernard Shakey) the fascinating, strangely affecting, and feature-length experiment Greendale as an after-the-fact movie to accompany his CD of the same name. Shot with low-tech equipment, the grainy, overlit Greendale sets a dreamy, David Lynch-like mood as Young tells the story of the fictional Green family, who live in a Northern California town that bears their name. Multi-generational anti-war activists and pro-environmental warriors, the Greens become beleaguered in a world of intensifying media scrutiny, corporate arrogance, personal tragedy, and the devil himself (in the form of a dancing dude in a red suit), culminating in the family's disillusionment and renewed commitment. There's no dialogue: The lyrics of Young's song cycle speak for the characters, making Greendale a novel hybrid of music video and visionary movie. --Tom Keogh
Pretty good movie representing the album. The solo concert by Neil is awesome. It was my favorite of all the versions available of this story.Published 27 days ago by Donald Bice
I like Neil Young and his music but the more I learn about him and his idealism the less I appreciate his work. This movie and the music lack creativity and imagination. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Brian V.
