Fans of will be in heaven watching this documentary, but even those not previously disposed to the classic rocker’s musical oeuvre will still find a lot to like in Jonathan Demme’s concert film. It captures Young’s Prairie Wind show in Nashville, Tennessee as he performs some beautiful numbers from his latest album, written following a brain aneurysm that he believed would end his life. Backed up by a terrific band, guest instruments (including a string ensemble) and the superb talents of the unforgettable , Young sounds as powerful as ever, and Demme’s completely unobtrusive camerawork that avoids any cuts away from the show allows the music to speak for itself.
