Neil Young Journeys The Phoenix Film Critics Society Pic of the Week is the new documentary "Neil Young Journeys" directed by Jonathan Demme. The film takes a look at Neil Young's 2011 solo tour to Toronto's Massey Hall, an iconic venue in the city of his birth. At sixty-five, Young retains a youthful vitality and musical curiosity. Concert footage of the Massey Hall performances is interspersed with scenes from a road trip through Ontario. Driving a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, Young visits the rural town of Omemee, where he spent a key part of his formative years, and reminisces about his former neighbors.
You can see it starting Friday at Harkins Camelview.
