Audience Reviews for Neil Young: Heart of Gold

  • Jan 30, 2012
    A fitting tribute to a great and still underappreciated artist. Demme succeeds where Young fails in his later Trunk Show film. Well rounded film that lets the music do the talking and what a story it tells.

    Documentary and concert film by Jonathan Demme, featuring Neil Young. The film was made in the summer of 2005 in Nashville, Tennessee, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, and was released to theaters on February 10, 2006. The film documents Young's premiere of his songs from his album Prairie Wind at the Ryman Auditorium. Great concert, great movie. Great music.

    The camera follows respectfully Neil Young on stage during the performance of the "Prairie Wind" show in Nashville, Tennessee and Jonathan Demme with simplicity and love draws the portrait of the great man and the artist, letting him go on his stage jokes with his old rugged dry humor and watching him play under the rim of his hat. At the end you can't help but falling in love with his art and his heart. Heart of Gold indeed.
