Trunk Show demonstrates that at 64 years old, ol' Shakey's never been sturdier.

On a stage cluttered with oddities -- a red telephone, a guy painting as the band plays -- Demme wisely resists the urge to dazzle us with rapid-fire cutting, instead lingering on Young's expressive 62-year-old face.

[A] stimulating, spontaneous mash-up of hot and cool, hits and obscurities. And it's made even more edgy by Demme's decision to reconfigure the set list for maximum contrast.

At one point in the screening I briefly drifted off, and when I woke up he was still soloing.

Demme's excitement for Young and his music is evident throughout, and the songs fit comfortably in the unvarnished setting.

Long-time fans are bound to break their armrests.
March 17, 2010
Young seesaws maniacally around the stage, the music surging and regressing with exhilarating unpredictability, the end seemingly never in sight. It's an unholy tantrum that Demme treats, quite rightly, like a miracle.

A slapdash job -- endearingly so.
