Greendale: A Film by Neil Young

( 1 )

Overview

Neil Young's homemade movie Greendale arrives on DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. The soundtrack has been rendered in both an impressive Dolby Digital 5.1 mix that does a fantastic job of presenting Young's music, and a fine Dolby Digital Stereo mix as well. There are no subtitles. The supplemental materials include an informative 20-minute featurette about the genesis of this unique project, and how Young went about getting his vision both on film ...

Neil Young's homemade movie Greendale arrives on DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of the film. The soundtrack has been rendered in both an impressive Dolby Digital 5.1 mix that does a fantastic job of presenting Young's music, and a fine Dolby Digital Stereo mix as well.

The supplemental materials include an informative 20-minute featurette about the genesis of this unique project, and how Young went about getting his vision both on film and on record. Biographies of the characters, as well as an extensive family tree of all of them, help make the story line clearer. This is a fine release of a very interesting, and truly independent, film from a living rock & roll legend.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Josh Ralske
Singer/songwriter Neil Young, in the guise of filmmaker Bernard Shakey, has referred to Greendale as a "musical novel." While the film, shot on 8 mm and grainy to the point of abstraction, has its moments -- and should please connoisseurs of lefty DIY cinema, along with Young's most ardent fans -- Greendale doesn't quite work on movie terms. "Show, don't tell" is the cardinal rule of filmmaking as a visual medium, and Greendale breaks that rule on a conceptual level, with actors lip-syncing Young's often trenchant lyrics, while we see an overly literal visual representation of same. The music tells us everything, and the lo-fi images seem superfluous. The folksy, broadly acted tale and muddy visuals come bracingly to life only in two sections. In one, Young integrates news footage of John Ashcroft and Tom Ridge into a plaintive outcry against fear mongering and the erosion of our individual rights. And in the film's jubilant environmentalist finale, "Be the Rain,"Young finally does away with his "Shakey" narrative and ends things on a joyously hopeful note. While it's seriously flawed, sometimes to the point of being hard to take, Greendale shows an audacious artist grappling with the important issues of the day in a heartfelt and boldly original way.
New York Times - A.O. Scott
Greendale is as full of crazy, honest life as anything he has done.
Los Angeles Times
By the time Greendale reaches its rousing crescendo with the anthem "Be the Rain" and Young and Crazy Horse have blown off the barn doors, the Canadian-born artist has crafted one genuinely tasty slice of Americana. Kevin Crust
