Neil Young: Heart of Gold


(2006, Dir. Jonathan Demme)

Demme continues his mastery of the live performance (Stop Making Sense, Swimming to Cambodia). His camera works symbiotically with the gathered group of musicians, and provides a perfect vehicle for Neil Young to relate his personal stories and songs. I’m sure it helps to be a fan of Young’s work, but the film is surprising in that it is extremely moving, as well as technically sound.
