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

Tom Keogh

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

Cole Smithey

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

James Berardinelli

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

A pleasant but uncompelling historical curio.
