This is an intimate, lyrical yet incendiary film, and it will please fans of both Young and Jarmusch.

Both a quirky little movie and a monument to one of rock 'n' roll's greatest noisemakers.

I'll never understand how Neil Young won the heart of Jim Jarmusch.

Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times

Plays like This Is Spinal Tap made from anti-matter. Both films are about aging rockers, but Year of the Horse removes the humor and energy.

If you've ever liked the 52-year-old Young's songs, you'll probably be hooked early on.

While a little Jarmusch is a good thing, a lot can be a bit much to take. At least when he's in this mood.

James Berardinelli

This is quite possibly the worst documentary I have ever had the displeasure of watching on the big screen.

If you don't like the music, forget it. But, if you're like me, a Neil Young fan, this is great inside stuff.
