Movie Info

A fantasy, a loud poem and a free-spirited tale of music and love, PARADOX is a one-of-a-kind personal expression. Sometime in the future past, the "Man in the Black Hat" (Neil Young), the "Particle Kid" (Micah Nelson), "Jail Time" (Lukas Nelson) and a ragged band of cowboys and outlaws hide high up in the Mountains. They pass the hours searching for treasure while they wait for the full moon to lend its magic, bring the music and make the spirits fly. Vibrating with original music by Young + Promise of the Real, PARADOX furthers the legacy of an iconic performer who has always broken the rules.

What Hannah has given us is essentially a glorified home movie sans the glory.

A waste of time made bearable only by its brevity.

It's a mess, son

Unique mix of dreamy Western and Neil Young concert; cursing

April 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The soundtracky bits -- all guitar feedback, vague chordings and massive toms -- are totally great, as is the acoustic ramble that floats around here and there.

It feels better-suited for playing on a reel-to-reel projector in someone's basement than at the biggest film venue of SXSW.
