Neil Young JourneysRenowned musician Neil Young goes home in the documentary movie Neil Young Journeys, the third Neil Young doc to be directed by Jonathan Demme (Something Wild) following Neil Young: Trunk Show (2009) and Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006).

Originally from Canada’s Toronto, 65-year-old Young’s film features his 2011 solo tour to Toronto’s iconic Massey Hall. In between performances of “Ohio,” “I Believe in You” and previously unreleased songs “Leia” and “You Never Call,” the film follows Young on a road trip through Ontario.

Fan and filmmaker Demme joined Young in his 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, visiting the rural town of Omemee where Young spent much of his formative years. With Demme’s camera rolling, Young reminisces about his former neighbors and embraces his memories of the past.

Rated PG, Neil Young Journeys was released in only a handfull of theaters, so the DVD and Blu-ray gives the movie its biggest audience.

Critics loved the film, giving it 91% approval, according to Rotten Tomatoes. But moviegoers weren’t so kind, with only 64% approval.

Both the DVD and Blu-ray offer three special features:

  • “92Y Takes With Neil Young & Jonathan Demme”
  • “Journey to Slamdance: A Conversation With Neil Young & Jonathan Demme”
  • “Making Journeys.”
