***1/2. A movie about an intimate Neil Young according to Jonathan Demme, a movie about my guitar according to Neil Young. True that the journey throughout Young's hometown and the Canadian countryside is rather tedious so let's enjoy the concerts. Neil Young is alone on stage but if you close your eyes, you could swear that Crazy Horse is right behind him. Strongly recommended.
Jonathan Demme pays tribute to legendary singer Neil Young in this extraordinarily intimate portrait, following Young on tour as he drives from venue to venue. Up close and personal (so close Young even gets spit on the camera), NEIL YOUNG JOURNEYS may not be particularly illuminating, but it's an unfettered backstage fans that will certainly please Young's ardent fans.
Do I love Neil Young? More than you know. But this movie was terrible. And when Jonathan Demme started using a split screen, "Journeys" felt like the worst movie of all time. Skip this and see "Neil Young Trunk Show" instead.
