Independent film hero Jim Jarmusch followed Neil Young & Crazy Horse during their 1996 world tour and captured it on handheld Super-8. Spliced with archival footage shot by Young and with current interviews from all band members and Young's father, the result is not so much an overview of the band's career as an homage to the power of the band's consistent and timeless work as a four-piece. With three other Neil Young concert films available on home video (Rust Never Sleeps, Weld, Neil Young

This is an intimate, lyrical yet incendiary film, and it will please fans of both Young and Jarmusch.
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.
If you've ever liked the 52-year-old Young's songs, you'll probably be hooked early on.
If you don't like the music, forget it. But, if you're like me, a Neil Young fan, this is great inside stuff.
I'll never understand how Neil Young won the heart of Jim Jarmusch.
While a little Jarmusch is a good thing, a lot can be a bit much to take. At least when he's in this mood.
If you love the music, you'll adore the film. It rocks!
The boys don't have much to say but it's oddly fascinating watching them try.
Too often comes across as so much fiddling with graphics and visual formats.
Fans will freak and the curious will be rewarded by indie film legend Jarmusch's doc of Neil Young and Crazy Horse.
The interviews with the band members and the behind-the-scenes footage ... make for an entertaining and illuminating experience.
Much like the subject himself, Jarmusch's film is decidedly not smooth and mellow, but it has the kick of a mule.
It cuts right to the savage heart of it all, thrusting the music center stage and leaving the rumors and anecdotes (most of them, anyway) to the biographers.
