Half concert doc, half political exposition, CSNY: DeJa Vu straddles the old and new slant on politics in music with diligence and not a little self-promotion.

Movie Info

Since their debut in the late '60s, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young have functioned as the "town criers" of their generation. With songs like "Ohio" and "Find the Cost of Freedom," CSNY were in the forefront of Vietnam-era protest and anti-war sentiment. Though fondly remembered for their harmonies and love songs, the band has never lost its political edge. "CSNY: Déjà Vu" finds the band heading out on their "Freedom of Speech 2006" of North America, featuring music from Neil Young's

It is a good, strong documentary.

Many come to the shows unprepared for the heavy sermonizing. Others call for it. The documentary seems equally divisive.

CSNY Déjà Vu has some delicious moments, but you never quite shake the feeling that it's documenting a tempest in a teapot.

The band's harmonies have crumbled and their new songs sound like paint being chipped off an aluminum shed with a garden rake. Their hits would sound better on the next eight-track you see at a yard sale.

Young, who directed the movie, compares today's climate with the Vietnam era, and doesn't bother hiding his disappointment in the present.

Recent and archival interview, news, war and music footage, which often juxtapose the Vietnam and Iraq conflicts, round out this unflinching, well-constructed picture.

The combination of music with the performers' dedication makes this more moving than a concert souvenir, though they are almost upstaged by touching moments with veterans.

This is not a rock tour film for CSNY fans so much as a rambling, occasionally thought-provoking, sometimes moving enquiry into the question of whether the sixties protest music generation has lost its leverage over hearts and minds.

What saves CSNY/Deja Vu from its self-importance is the surprisingly lively, timely and timeless music.

Neil Young, though he be the writer of some of the finest, most trenchant, angriest political songs of the last fifty years, has no skill at marshaling arguments in a cinematic context.

The problem isn't what it's communicating. It's the awkward structure and tendency toward redundancy. The film's a hodgepodge of songs, old footage and stories of the Iraq War that just doesn't come together with any sense of narrative cohesiveness.

One can't help finding it funny that the most poorly positioned elements in the film are musical ones, yet the uniquely raw and under-produced sound of the band does find itself a comfortable home in this raw and under-produced doc.

Come to think of it, maybe the reason the movie spends so much time patting the band on the back is because it is obvious movie audiences aren't likely to.

CSNY Déjà Vu doesn't break any new documentary ground, but it does exactly what it sets out to do: Preserve a live event and make it available to a broader audience.

The film avoids discussing politics directly, and instead discusses the right to discuss politics.

...a mix of music and politics, outrage and respect, past and present that is both thoroughly entertaining and reflective.

Wears its heart squarely on its sleeve for all to see and takes no prisoners in stating its political mind.
