Neil Young Journeys Reviews
March 10, 2021
Perhaps this is just the fan in me speaking but the problems with this movie are with the filmmaking, not with Neil Young.

Perhaps one of the best "concert" documentaries ever made, is one journey you don't want to miss.

It's a journey unto itself, a performance doc with a very special kind of intimacy.

Like its subject, Neil Young Journeys has a loose and rough-hewed charm.
August 10, 2017
It's an essential Neil Young concert film.

Count me in the camp that wouldn't mind another Young/Demme movie every two or three years from here on out.

Young's amiable, guard-down chatter as he drives that 1956 Ford Crown Victoria all the way from Omemee to Massey Hall in Toronto establishes a sense of heart and soul ...

Demme plants a camera on the mic stand so at one point he can present Young's unshaven scowl in extreme close-up, blocking out the gorgeously lighted stage. It's not a pleasant image

It's OK. But seriously, how many Neil Young documentaries do we need?

A mournful documentary that combines footage of Young in concert in Toronto with a bittersweet trip to his childhood home in Omemee in southern Ontario.

Demme hasn't stopped seeking out new angles on this old warhorse, and even the odd speck of spittle on the lens cannot obscure the fact Young increasingly looks and sounds like one of the all-time greats.

Jonathan Demme makes his third concert film with Young, including shots practically right up his nostrils.

If this is raging against the dying of the light, long may he rage.

...too much material drawing from his mediocre Le Noise album and the interview segments where Young drives around Ontario telling stories from his youth are less than revelatory.
October 26, 2012
I've seen better concert videos and I've seen better music documentaries. This one is for diehard Neil Young fans.

...just Young and his insinuating voice (which I'm inclined to credit more now than I was 40 years ago), various guitars, harmonica and piano, over which he displays a great and tender command.

Fans of folk rock legend Neil Young who are willing to accept that the guy is well past his prime will respond to the downbeat tone of Jonathan Demme's concert film.

The director is putting Young in the audience's lap, allowing the viewer to examine all the creases and crevices of his grizzled face as well as capturing the emotion the singer pours into his songs.
