1997 / 106min / DCP

DIRECTOR: JIM JARMUSCH

CAST: NEIL YOUNG

Shot on a patchwork of video, Super-8, and 16mm, Jarmusch’s first venture into documentary rides along with Neil Young’s band Crazy Horse on their 1996 world tour, embarked on not long after Young had provided the improvised guitar soundtrack to Jarmusch’s Dead Man. Between often played-in-full performances, which show a wild and impassioned rock outfit at full fierce strength, we get a recounting of the group’s three-decade lifespan, in a rough-and-ready film by turns jagged and caressing, like the music in documents.
