Neil Young Trunk Show

Neil Young Trunk Show (2010)



Average Rating: 7.6/10

It'll likely prove impenetrable for the uninitiated, but Jonathan Demme's second Neil Young documentary presents a less contemplative side of its subject -- and a loud, passionate glimpse of a rock legend at work.

Movie Info

Jonathan Demme gives us some Neil Young musical and spiritual soul. Young on a stage full of personal icons: alone in the center of a circle of his beloved acoustic guitars; in the midst of stellar musicians Ben Keith, Ralph Molina, Rick Rosas, Pegi Young and Anthony "Sweet Pea" Crawford, plus an onstage painter portrayed by Eric Johnson. There are delicately offered acoustic numbers like "Sad Movies" and "Mexico"; mesmerizing electric travelogues into the artist's psyche ("No Hidden Path");

Demme beautifully captures the show's casual intimacy.

For better or worse, this is a straightforward performance film. I feel it's for the worse.

Like all true filmmakers, Demme also has an eye for telling details.

The mix of grainy film and pixel-sharp tape, plus some innovative editing that includes multiple split screens, adds brilliant textures to the piece.

You forget you're watching a movie and instead feel like you've got the best seat in the house.

The nitpicky reservations I have of Jonathan Demme's unadorned (some would call it lazy) concert film, Neil Young Trunk Show, do not offset my full-out recommendation that Young fans run right out and see it.

Do we really need two Neil Young concert films? By the same director, no less? In three short years? The answer given by Neil Young Trunk Show is emphatically yes.

Neil Young Trunk Show is 82 minutes long, 81 of which are guitar solos.

Apparently it's the second film of a trilogy Demme intends on Young -- and the middles are always the hardest parts to get right, yeah?

March 25, 2010 Full Review Source: Oregonian

A marvelous document of a still vital musician whose unbending indifference to pop fashion has proven him more creatively durable than any other figure from the golden '60s moment that gave birth to his career.

Young plays a loose, enthusiastic set that is exuberant for its range and energy. Reeks with the authenticity of a hard-working, grown-up music star who does it his way.

Sensationally entertaining...Demme captures [Neil] Young's pure, unadulterated passion and love for music in a way that no words can truly [describe].

An astonishing portrait of one unique and gifted artist working at the peak of his powers presented by another that deserves a place on the short list of the great concert movies.
