Given what Young charges for concert tickets, all his organs could be gold. So I was grateful for this documentary of his August 2005 shows at the fabled Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, staged for this film and expertly directed by Jonathan Demme. Like Demme's wonderful films of Talking Heads (Stop Making Sense) and Robyn Hitchcock (Storefront Hitchcock), this sticks to the stage once the performance has begun, dispensing with interviews and audience reaction shots. Young, backed up by a large ensemble that includes Spooner Oldham and Emmylou Harris, plays songs from his new Prairie Wind CD and some 70s favorites, invoking the ghost of Hank Williams and offering wise reflections on his father's recent death and his own aging. PG, 103 min.
Sorry there are no upcoming showtimes for Neil Young: Heart of Gold
