Unlike anything you've ever seen (or maybe even wanted to), Young's movie is furious, fascinating and utterly fresh.

It's grungy, honest, disarming and unapologetically original.

What is intended as a multileveled evocation of Young's values approaches parody, a Christopher Guest-like goof on flower children who stayed too long at the fair.

More an interesting experiment than an engaging piece of entertainment.

This is a patience-testing curiosity strictly for the veteran rocker's hard-core fans.

There's no denying the poignancy and power of Young's commitment to old-fashioned -- and, he seems keenly aware, out of fashion -- political activism.

Ken Fox
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Young's visual interpretation of his lyrics is so literal that the film resembles an early music video, and it's a curiously passive experience.

Neil Young's film, less a conventional movie than an album-length music video, is full of ornery wisdom and idiosyncratic sublimity.

Has a purposely amateurish feel that doesn't obscure the careful editing.

It's impossible not to feel involved on a fundamental level.

...you'd probably be better off picking up the Greendale soundtrack and using your imagination to provide accompanying images.

If this didn't have Young's name attached, it would likely have sunk without a trace.

On its own, the Greendale film is tough to navigate, especially for those who haven't heard the accompanying album or seen the Greendale concert.

Sitting through Greendale in a Dolby-equipped theater, at high volume with bone-penetrating bass, is an ideal way for Young fans to experience the rustic grandeur of the master's latest album.

83 minutes of dark, grainy images grew irritating quickly.

E! Online

It's a beautifully strange vision, created by Young on a cheap 8mm camera, and its David Lynch-style hometown poetics are as simple as they are heartfelt.

Kevin John Bozelka
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The ceaseless 4/4 lumber of Young's perennial backing band, Crazy Horse, combined with the aggressive grunginess of the imagery, bespeaks commitment, and a sense of purpose.

| Original Score: 3/4

On-the-sleeve enough to ultimately prove a little embarrassing.

It's both too obscure and too obvious to be a very good film.
