  • Poster: B-

Review:

I wouldn't give this design a second glance if I saw it in a busy multiplex, but the design work is such that it lingers in your mind a bit inspite of being deceptively simple.

  • Trailer: B

Review:

For fans of documentaries about musicians, this looks like a fine example. For fans of Neil Young, this may be informative. For everyone else, I don't see much shared interest.

Oscar Prospects:

Music documentaries haven't done well with the Academy in some time. Although, Demme is a well respected music documentary filmmaker, then again so was Martin Scorsese.
