Critic Reviews for Year of the Horse
Plays like This Is Spinal Tap made from anti-matter. Both films are about aging rockers, but Year of the Horse removes the humor and energy.
This is quite possibly the worst documentary I have ever had the displeasure of watching on the big screen.
Both a quirky little movie and a monument to one of rock 'n' roll's greatest noisemakers.
This is an intimate, lyrical yet incendiary film, and it will please fans of both Young and Jarmusch.
If you've ever liked the 52-year-old Young's songs, you'll probably be hooked early on.
Audience Reviews for Year of the Horse
Jim Jarmusch shot this documentary/live about Neil Young and his band Crazy Horse as they toured in 1996. It was shot on low quality film stock intentionally (Super 8mm, and 16mm film stocks as well as Hi-8 Video Tape), and the look is part of the charm. Quite frankly, if you don't like Neil Young and his music, avoid this altogether. It was made for people who really like Neil Young. I liked it for what it was, but it is a little hard to recommend to someone who is only a casual fan of Young and his work.
