Consensus: Strictly for Neil Young fans only.

Overall, it's a pretty irritating movie. But as I watched it, almost in spite of myself, I kept getting caught up in Young's music.

You're better off listening to the album than watching this almost unwatchable movie.

Neil Young's latest album is part diatribe, part folk tale. He grabbed a super-8 camera and shot a bunch of flannel-wearing Youngalikes as they lipsynched to the libretto. It's strangely compelling...

It's dreadfully boring.

Smacks of self-indulgence and misplaced ideals.

Its strength lies in its rawness, innocence and lack of polish, as it gets the concerned singer's message out loud and clear to those who are believers.

Young might have been thinking high-concept, but on the screen, Greendale devolves into overwrought 'save the planet for another day' screeds and Sunday-school homilies.

Entertainment Weekly

An avant home movie posing as an anthem by an artist whose message gets grainier the closer you look.

[Neil Young's] dotardly video companion to his album of the same name.
