Neil Young Journeys Reviews

The nicest thing I can think of to say about the doc "Neil Young Journeys" is that at least it isn't in 3-D.

...too much material drawing from his mediocre Le Noise album and the interview segments where Young drives around Ontario telling stories from his youth are less than revelatory.

I've seen better concert videos and I've seen better music documentaries. This one is for diehard Neil Young fans.

What's the point of this particular project? Why - apart from any marketing concerns - did either artist feel it was essential to capture this concert on film?

"Journeys" is simply a trip most need not take.

Las Vegas CityLife

Demme plants a camera on the mic stand so at one point he can present Young's unshaven scowl in extreme close-up, blocking out the gorgeously lighted stage. It's not a pleasant image

Long may he run, sure, but 'Neil Young Journeys' has the feeling of a farewell.

The List

Young's amiable, guard-down chatter as he drives that 1956 Ford Crown Victoria all the way from Omemee to Massey Hall in Toronto establishes a sense of heart and soul ...

Of course, the music is the thing and the sounds here earn Demme's reverence.

Slant Magazine

As great and intimate as Live at Massey Hall 1971 may be, it's not as transportive as this filming of a Neil Young performance at the venue 30 years later.

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

A mesmerizing and intimate visit with a performer who is identified most closely with rock 'n' roll, but whose artistic curiosity has taken him in myriad directions musically throughout his 40-plus-year career.

It's OK. But seriously, how many Neil Young documentaries do we need?

The heart of any concert movie is the concert itself, and in the case of Neil Young Journeys, it's a great one.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

For fans, Journeys is like that box set of uneven rarities that they simply must own. For casual friends, it's 90 minutes in good company. For the rest - ho-hum.

...just Young and his insinuating voice (which I'm inclined to credit more now than I was 40 years ago), various guitars, harmonica and piano, over which he displays a great and tender command.

Fans of the 66-year-old guitar god (which is to say the only people who'll see this homespun gem) will revel in Young's winsome cruise down Memory Lane.

It's an intimate performance portrait, divided among new material from his 2010 album "Le Noise" and many of his classics.

With its one-of-a-kind poetic lamentation, Young's voice sounds more peculiarly lovely than ever. A small picture, but good and true.

"Journeys" is about looking back - not in sorrow or wistfulness, but in affection and, often, impassioned remembrance of times past and how they still resonate in the present.
