In May of 2011, Neil Young drove a 1956 Crown Victoria from his idyllic hometown of Omemee, Ontario to Toronto’s iconic Massey Hall, where he played the last two nights of his solo world tour. Employing some new sonic tricks he learned from Daniel Lanois, Young careens through a thunderous set that includes songs from the Lanois-produced album ‘Le Noise’ mixed with classics like Ohio, My My Hey Hey and I Believe in You and two previously unreleased songs. Part documentary about Young’s childhood and part concert film, Journeys is the third, and arguably the best, in a trilogy of films Young and Demme have made together.
Through the tunes and tales, Demme portrays a personal retrospective look in the heart and soul of an artist.
