About the Movie

The war in Iraq is the backdrop as the CSNY "Freedom of Speech Tour" crisscrosses North America. The film examines the band's connection to its audience in both political and musical terms, and examines the relationship between Vietnam-era anti-war sentiment and today's post-9/11 environment. A Vietnam veteran sums it all up: "It's deja vu all over again."

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: CSNY Deja Vu has some delicious moments, but you never quite shake the feeling that it's documenting a tempest in a teapot. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Recent and archival interview, news, war and music footage, which often juxtapose the Vietnam and Iraq conflicts, round out this unflinching, well-constructed picture. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A melodious howl of protest against the Iraq War from one of rock's greatest bands. – Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Many come to the shows unprepared for the heavy sermonizing. Others call for it. The documentary seems equally divisive. – Aidin Vaziri, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Shut Up And Sing

I love CSN&Y. "4 Way Street" was one of the first LPs I bought as a young teenager in the early 70s. I really didn't care about the politics, just the music. But the Vietnam era couldn't be more different from the world we live in today. One can still argue the merits of the Vietnam Conflict, but the FACT is the young men who fought in it were mostly draftees, who had no choice in the matter. And Communist North Vietnam had never attacked the U.S., nor had any intention of doing so. The U.S. was bound by treaty to support its ally, the Republic of South Vietnam, and that was the extent of the reason for U.S. involvement. In contrast, the Saddam regime had supported, aided and abetted enemies of the U.S., who had targeted and killed U.S. citizens. Saddam harbored terrorists such as Abu Abbas and many others, who had killed American citizens. Saddam had plotted the assassination of former President George H. W. Bush, and had fired on U.S. aircraft patrolling the no-fly zones in the north and south of the country. There were many, many provocations over a dozen years, and the U.S. involvement toppled that evil regime. I think the basis for this "political statement" in this concert is a farce. These are graying old men who seek to recapture the glory days of their youth, when what they did and said (they think) mattered. Of course, one can point out that the pressure to get the U.S. out of Vietnam resulted directly in the deaths of MILLIONS in Indochina, from the boat people to the killing fields of Cambodia to the boat people in the South China Sea. But they never own up to that responsibility. Why should we listen to them now? This is a decent performance, but I solemnly spit on the absurdity of its premise.

Excuse me

Shut up and sing? This is America and anybody can have whatever opinion they want and to tell someone to not express whatever they feel through music is unpatriotic. I don't care what the message is, that's what music is suppose to be about. If you don't like it then don't listen, I'm sure there is somebody out there that shares your views and has a few albums to back them up with.
