At a time when the visuals in so many movies drown out weak storytelling and flailing dialogue, Neil Young's made an oddity: Greendale is a film better heard than seen.

An 83-minute rock block of interconnected music videos... it feels like a giant marketing ploy to sell more albums.

Young might have been thinking high-concept, but on the screen, Greendale devolves into overwrought 'save the planet for another day' screeds and Sunday-school homilies.

More an interesting experiment than an engaging piece of entertainment.

It's both too obscure and too obvious to be a very good film.

On its own, the Greendale film is tough to navigate, especially for those who haven't heard the accompanying album or seen the Greendale concert.
