I've always loved Neil Young, from back in the day with Buffalo Springfield and Crazy Horse, through CSNY to "Living with War." Don't get me wrong:this is an excellent film and certainly something any real fan of Neil Young's work will want. HOWEVER: please remember that it was filmed just prior to Young's operation for an aneurysm (it is alluded to in the film) and just after the death of his dad, Scott Young,from senile dementia. It is quite clear issues of mortality are much on Young's mind during the concert, and one friend of mine even suggested this film might have served as a goodbye if the aneurysm operation didn't come off as it should have. Happily, it did, and long may Neil Young wave. Just be careful, though, cuz there are long tracts of this film I cried through.
