Neil Young & Jonathan Demme
"Heart of Gold" film premiere @ Sundance 2006


Jonathan Demme's third Neil Young concert film is expected to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Demme's concert film was shot last May over two nights at Massey Hall in Toronto.

The final installment in Demme’s concert film trilogy, after Neil Young: Heart of Gold (2006) and Neil Young Trunk Show (2008), is due out in theaters later this year.

In other film news, the world premiere for Cameron Crowe’s new documentary "Pearl Jam Twenty" will also be at TIFF.

Here's PJ20: Soundtrack Tracklisting! – The Uncool - The Official Site for Everything Cameron Crowe which includes "Walk With Me" (with Neil Young) – Bridge School Benefit (10/23/10). (Thanks Matt!)

ummm..yea...what Sunny82 said about what TomCrac said about what punkdavid said about what Anonymous said.

I can't help but continue to be a bit ticked off that Trunk Show is stuck up on a shelf and the website still exists. Why? Is it for Archives Volume VIII?

So will the 'Le Noise' concert be released on DVD in our lifetimes?

Sorry for the sarcasm but the 2007 tour was fantastic and I've about given up on seeing the film.

Hey, don't despair.

Trunk will get released. It'll certainly be sooner than JTTP or HH.

JTTP only took 35+ years. HH came out on VHS like 20 years ago.

It'll defintely by in NYA Vol VII.

But seriously, how about a Bluray boxset of the trilogy?!

I'm really looking forward to seeing the Massey Hall doc at the TIFF. I was in attendance at Massey Hall on both nights (May 10 and 11, 2011) when the cameras were rolling.
I saw "The Neil Young Trunk Show" at a free outdoor event during the the TIFF in September 2009.
My first live Neil concert was at Massey Hall in 1971 and I was at two of his three gigs at Massey Hall in November 2007.
I also saw "Heart of Gold" at the Cumberland Cinema in 2006.

Here is a preview of the film courtesy of the TIFF website:

--------------
This past May, Neil Young brought his solo tour to Toronto’s Massey Hall, an iconic venue in the city of his birth. Jonathan Demme was on hand to capture the two nights, which highlighted new songs from the album Le Noise, produced by Daniel Lanois, mixed with classics like “Ohio” and “I Believe in You.” At sixty-five, Young retains a youthful vitality and musical curiosity that balances his wisdom and experience. It’s no wonder he’s been an inspiration to the likes of Pearl Jam and Sonic Youth. In NeilYoung Life, Demme intersperses the Massey Hall concert footage with brief scenes from a road trip through Ontario. Driving a 1956 Ford Crown Victoria, Young visits the rural town of Omemee, where he spent a key part of his formative years, and reminisces about his former neighbours and their daughters. As he drives past bulldozers transforming the landscape, he remarks, “It’s all gone… it’s still in my head.”

For Mavericks, Young and Demme will present the world premiere of Neil Young Life in the splendid Princess of Wales Theatre, followed by a live conversation. Demme previously filmed Young performing in Nashville, the year after the musician survived a brain aneurysm, for the documentary Neil Young:Heart of Gold. Their second collaboration was Neil Young Trunk Show, memorializing a Pennsylvania concert during the tour for his album Chrome Dreams II. Young’s repertoire is so vast that none of the songs in those previous films overlap the selections featured in Neil Young Life.

At Massey Hall, Young shares the stage only with a wooden statue of a Native American as he moves between two pianos, an organ and several guitars, acoustic and electric. The songs are full of intense, poetic imagery. In one haunting number, “You Never Call,” he pays homage to his late friend Larry “L.A.” Johnson, who ran Young’s film company, Shakey Pictures. And in “Love and War,” he offers a kind of summation of his whole career: “Since the backstreets of Toronto/I sang for justice and I hit a bad chord/But I still try to sing about love and war.”

Sounds good to me!

@Sharry - the film should bring back some good memories. :)

Hope you get to attend premeire.

Looks like Neil will be there this time. see below.

@Carson = thanx for share

... Not to change the subject, but has anybody heard of a release date for the Trunk Show?

 
At 8/23/2011 10:02:00 PM, Blogger TomCrac said...

Yeah... What Big Chief said! :)

Thanks, Thrasher. I'm going to do my best at trying to procure a seat for the screening. It's wonderful news that Neil will be attending. Besides reliving the concerts (which I attended),I'm really interested in the footage from his road trip since he obviously visited some of the places from his childhood. (More material for my book! :) )

Good luck Sharry. And hopefully Neil makes it this time after the mixup last year. :)

Some of us less geographically fortunate folks were unable to see any of the tours of Neil's with his Electric Band, and have been looking forward to seeing Trunk Show since it was first announced. The film itself has only shown in limited runs in select cites and at film festivals. I haven't even been able to find it as an illegal download, as I've heard some have, and I'm usually pretty resourceful about finding such things.

In any case, I would desperately like to see Neil and Ben playing in what may be the best band Neil ever assembled, performing rare and unreleased songs, and a 15+ minute "No Hidden Path" (Neil's best song in the last 15+ years).

Oh, and weren't there supposed to be bonus songs on the DVD that didn't appear in the theatrical release? Yeah, that too.

punkdavid - sorry to hear that you were not able to catch the Chrome Dreams II tour. Obviously you realize that it was epic. I saw the leg with Ralphie on drums but didn't get a chance to see any dates after Chad Cromwell took over.

There won't be a tour like that again.

But we're all still holding out hope for the possibility of a Horse reunion.

And that 'Trunk Show' will someday be available to actually watch instead of just talk about it.

I know I just can't get enough, I got to see the LaNoise in Dallas last show of 2010 tour. Met him and completely fell apart. He got a buzz out of it and signed my new purse and I promised him it wouldn't be found on ebay,,,,he was so cool to me.. and so was elliot...they rock/..
