Plot Summary

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 live performances from the 2010 album Le Noise and powerful renditions of classics including "Ohio", “Hey Hey, My My", "I 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: With its one-of-a-kind poetic lamentation, Young's voice sounds more peculiarly lovely than ever. A small picture, but good and true. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Jul 12, 2012

Fresh: More casual fans will twist in their chairs uncomfortably, wishing that a roadie would walk up and wipe it off. Neil Young die-hards will cherish the spittle. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 5, 2012

Fresh: For true believers, "Neil Young Journeys" is a visit with a still-vital friend. For the merely curious, it's proof that there's more to the man - more strangeness, deeper communions with the muse - than classic rock radio will ever let on. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jul 12, 2012

Fresh: It's an intimate performance portrait, divided among new material from his 2010 album "Le Noise" and many of his classics. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 12, 2012

You would have to be there,

This is made for only for us and anyone that understands the journey, Thanks Neil.

Neil Young Journeys

I want my money back. I have been following Neil Young since seeing him with Buffalo Springfield. Not sure what this movie was supposed to be about as it was hollow. Left me wanting my money back as I had to watch his grizzled beard sing a couple of songs.

Neil Young Journeys

Really, really, really apathetically mediocre cinematography. I can’t believe I contributed money to the guy who slapped this together. I didn’t even finish watching it.
