Editorial Reviews

Despite remaining a hugely original singer, songwriter, performer and, let's face it, human being, across a career spanning almost fifty years, Neil Young has never been immune to the influence of others. This will be of no surprise to anyone with even a hint of interest in the man and his music, but only those who have studied their subject in depth will be aware of the enormous range of artists and genres Neil has both been affected by and drawn inspiration from, much of which, if one knows where to look, is apparent in Young's incredible catalogue.

Many reviewers of this film don't seem to understand what the filmmaker's goal is. If you want to listen to Neil Young's music, this documentary is a lousy choice. It's not even really a biography either, in the usual sense, as it glosses over some wonderful recordings and significant life events. It's not a "He did this and then he did this" story. The film is primarily about the wide range of Young's influences and how they've manifested in his music. (A more descriptive title could have made that clearer.) It recounts well-known stories of musical lineages, but brings in some lesser-known nuggets, as well. If you want consider Young's creativity and process, it's really pretty good. If you don't want to think a little, this movie isn't for you.

There are interviews with some of the most accomplished and well-researched authors of books about rock and folk-rock, including Richie Unterberger and Johnny Rogan. (Check out Unterberger's wonderful "Turn! Turn! Turn!--the '60s folk-rock revolution" and "Eight Miles High--folk-rock's flight from Haight-Ashbury to Woodstock;" Rogan's "Timeless Flight" seems to unearth fascinating new information about the Byrds with every new edition.) Those guys know what they're talking about.

The clips of Young performing are brief; some are from mainstream films, like "Rust Never Sleeps." But the concert clips with studio versions of the songs on the soundtrack seems like a cheap gimmick. But what's worse is when the soundtrack is playing an entirely different song. (Give us a LITTLE credit!) But even with that cheapening the whole thing, it's pretty engaging. While some the discussions about surf guitar and electronica do seem overlong, they're balanced by some very cool interviews with now-obscure musicians. (Quick--name a member of the Squires besides Neil Young.)

liked it for sharing info on his musical career not evident otherwise, one caveat is there was inordinate time spent on his fascination with Kraftwerk and their inspiration for "Trans", I understand an artist's desire to explore the as yet unexplored to find, define and create the new, but the shift of the doc went over to talking heads speaking of Neil's fascination with Kraftwerk using an inordinate amount of time as if to explain to unknowing or uncaring viewers - we follow Neil Young he needs no explanation. The muse he follows has been steadfast and has Mr. Young prolifically making music by which we take the journey along with him, else leave head-scratchers to hold up the line. The music and appearance clips were what I wanted most and though many were snatches of those times, they were generous in quantity to satisfy. Thank you.

This film consists of various talking heads offering their opinions on what influences have guided Neil Young's musical progression. It includes a lot of film and audio clips of other artists, and only a few blurry clips of Young himself performing. There are NO interviews with Young, and little information about his personal life or professional success. I watched the entire thing, but only because I'm a die-hard fan of Neil Young, and like the musicians that were deemed to influence him. Casual listeners to his music will probably find it boring and uninformative. Although the film was made in 2011, oddly the discussion of his music only followed him to the mid-90s. Personally, I would have preferred a review of his discography, and include the influences for each album as secondary.

I love music. I live for music. I had my first stereo and record collection at four years old. Being almost 44 years old, that puts me smack in the middle of the last ringing tones of the Beatles and the first howling scream of the Sex Pistols. I am one lucky guy to have been born when I was. This is why I love music documentaries. It allows me to study the musicians I love close up, and at slow speed. I can try to feel how they did and learn from what they have done, and just generally let knowledge seep into my pores. That's what this Neil Young Documentary is all about, but there are a couple drawbacks.

Neil Young's Music Box is a VERY in depth documentary, running two hours (didn't feel like it), taking us from his childhood to the present day in a very concise manner. There is a narrator for the general storyline and five or six "Talking heads" that are either friends of Neil or are in the music business. All are very helpful in moving the narrative along at a good clip.

Influences in Neil's musical life are what make up the bulk of this documentary, and while I wouldn't have thought to string the story of his life around such things, it ends up making a lot of sense by the conclusion of the film. We find out about the earliest of his heroes (Elvis, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy Orbison) and how they helped him emerge from an instrumental band and "Guitar Nerd" into the folk scene and eventually into Buffalo Springfield. The Beatles, and in particular George Harrison gave him the courage to finally start singing and also Harrison and Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones became his new guitar heroes.
