Neil Young - Greendale Reviews

Page 1 of 3
Jason Gorber
Film Scouts

Neil Young's latest album is part diatribe, part folk tale. He grabbed a super-8 camera and shot a bunch of flannel-wearing Youngalikes as they lipsynched to the libretto. It's strangely compelling...

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Its strength lies in its rawness, innocence and lack of polish, as it gets the concerned singer's message out loud and clear to those who are believers.

If Young's music or essential intrigue -- at any stage of his rich, 30-plus years of unpredictable expression -- have ever entertained your imagination, Greendale will likely yield a fun field trip into the mystery of his evergreen mind.

A uniquely and even inspirationally personal work -- particularly if you're down with the movie's message that personal expression is mass culture's Public Enemy No. 1.

Unlike anything you've ever seen (or maybe even wanted to), Young's movie is furious, fascinating and utterly fresh.

It's grungy, honest, disarming and unapologetically original.

There's no denying the poignancy and power of Young's commitment to old-fashioned -- and, he seems keenly aware, out of fashion -- political activism.

Neil Young's film, less a conventional movie than an album-length music video, is full of ornery wisdom and idiosyncratic sublimity.

Has a purposely amateurish feel that doesn't obscure the careful editing.

It's impossible not to feel involved on a fundamental level.

Sitting through Greendale in a Dolby-equipped theater, at high volume with bone-penetrating bass, is an ideal way for Young fans to experience the rustic grandeur of the master's latest album.

E! Online

It's a beautifully strange vision, created by Young on a cheap 8mm camera, and its David Lynch-style hometown poetics are as simple as they are heartfelt.

The ceaseless 4/4 lumber of Young's perennial backing band, Crazy Horse, combined with the aggressive grunginess of the imagery, bespeaks commitment, and a sense of purpose.

On-the-sleeve enough to ultimately prove a little embarrassing.

The style and technique devised by the songwriter cum super-8 cameraoperator may not be a new amalgamation of art forms but it makes for an enjoyable entertainment for fans.

A low-fi movie masterpiece that vividly captures both the grim realities and hippie idealism in Young's absorbing song cycle.

An unapologetically personal and passionately political film that brings the album to life in a way that transcends the traditional long-form music video and defies easy categorization.
