  • Editorial Reviews

    In May of 2011, Neil Young drove a 1956 Crown Victoria from his idyllic hometown of Omemee, Ontario to downtown Toronto's iconic Massey Hall where he intimately performed the last two nights of his solo world tour. Along the drive, Young recounted insightful and introspective stories from his youth to filmmaker Jonathan Demme. Demme, a long-time fan and collaborator, captured these tales of Young's childhood and masterfully weaved them together with his mesmerizing music including songs from the 2010 album Le Noise and powerful renditions of classics including Ohio, Hey Hey, My My, Believe in You and previously unreleased songs "Leia" and You Never Call. Through the tunes and the tales, Demme portrays a personal, retrospective look into the heart and soul of the artist. In NEIL YOUNG JOURNEYS, Young's intense performances are presented in full, along with passages from the funny and sometimes wistful ride into town. Demme and Young previously collaborated on two other documentaries, Neil Young Heart of Gold, which chronicled Young performing in Nashville, the year after he survived a brain aneurysm and Neil Young Trunk Show, which memorialized a Pennsylvania concert during Young's "Chrome Dreams II tour.

    Fall 2012 is the "season of the Young" (well Neil Young, anyway), and I seem to be immersed in "things Young", going through his new autobiography in both hardbound book and the audiobook version (read by Keith Carradine). Now comes this Bluray disc of the 2012 feature film/concert documentary "Neil Young Journeys", directed by Jonathan Demme. This is either the third, or fifth (depending on how you define "film") Demme/Young film and - as Demme points out in the bonus features - completely different from the previous projects. And it's wonderful.

    The majority of the 89-minutes consists of Young performing during the last two nights of his "Le Noise" solo tour at the historic Massey Hall in Toronto, Canada (where Young was born). But Demme wanted to show more about Young so he rented a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria (Young is a car buff as well as a huge Lionel train fan) and had him start in Omemee, the town in northern Ontario where Young grew up (they moved from Toronto early on), following his brother Bob (in another vintage car), Demme drove with him to Toronto. They visit sites important to Young in his early life and Young tells some funny stories. But, as I said, the 12 songs performed in the concerts (the two concerts were edited together) form the nucleolus of the film. In addition to the songs on his 2011 album, we get two previously unreleased songs and as well as the "hits", including "After The Gold Rush", "My My Hey Hey" and "Ohio" - the latter being embellished by film clips of the Kent State shootings and photos of the four students killed. Demme uses some odd camera techniques and on two songs (including "Down by the River") he uses a tiny camera mounted on the mic stand and we get close-ups of Young's teeth!!!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Five Other Fans and Me October 3, 2012
    Format:DVD
    I recently rushed to a small inner city cinema in Melbourne to see the Saturday midday screening of "Neil Young Journeys". Joining me were five others - and we all joked about how we couldn't understand why the cinema wasn't full!!

    This movie is brilliant. We get to be with Neil as he rambles around "a town in north Ontario" and gain a glimpse into his younger days. We are right on stage as he takes us through song after memorable song from all stages of his career - oh the playing. Jonathon Demme's direction is superb - you are on a journey into the theatre and on to the stage.

    Neil plays with such power and passion - be warned about the impact of those first chords of "Ohio" - and also sweetness and respect for his subject matter.

    I've got to have this DVD

    This is an intriguing Documentary of Neil Young as he returns home for a Special Performance and much more! This Amazing Artist performs with his guitars and keyboards from iconic hits to brand-new material. Also included is a portrait of his life, his homeland, and on-tour Entertainment. He always Rocked from the very beginning of his career and is still a Shining Star in the music industry. Stunning Performance, very Interesting and Enjoyable for all Neil Young Fans from the 'Oldies But Goodies' to a New generation. Highly Recommended!

    3.0 out of 5 stars it's okay (dvd missing special features) October 20, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray
    i am a long time Neil fan, have about everything he's released & seen him live about 10 times. (his Hollywood Bowl show with Crazy Horse was great btw.)

    i rented this from Netflix & i'm glad i didn't buy it. the 10 songs he does on solo electric guitar were just okay. i'm not a fan of his "Le Noise" style which i find cold to listen to. either i like full on Neil acoustic or the great loud Horse. i think the electric guitar needs the bass & drum to give it rhythm. maybe that's why it's called a rhythm session.

    the interviews were full length but your typical rock star interview. for me, no revelations. his book Waging Heavy Peace gives more insights but even there, some ramblings & too much plugging for Pono (i still wonder how that compares with Apple Lossless).

    his driving around Ontario was ok, but if it weren't Neil Young driving around, most of us has seen small towns.

    anyway, it's okay to see once but IMO it's not a must see or must buy.

    Note: the dvd does not have the special features/interviews that the bluray has.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Great Little Film From Shakey October 24, 2012
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    Journeys is a pretty good film. It includes some amazing Performances from the Twisted Road tour and also some behind the scenes of Neil Young. I expected to have more of the driving and stories about Young's "Journeys", but the info included was quite funny and entertaining. The concert is amazing, except for a couple songs. "Down By The River" and " Hitchiker" have a strange camera shot that focuses on Young's jawline and mouth and does not show much to any guitar work. This was a strange use of camera work. It seems to be a mini cam placed on the mic stand. All in all, this is not as good as Rust Never Sleeps. It ranks up with Heart of Gold. Heart of Gold may be a little better. 4 out of 5.
