The Year of The Horse Trailer
Just for fun, here's the trailer for the film 'The Year of The Horse '.
The concert film "Year of The Horse" from the 1996 tour, directed by Jim Jarmusch, is certainly a worthy successor to the classic "Rust Never Sleeps" with the addition of interviews and behind the scenes footage along with the raging, stomping, raw Crazy Horse style.
Featuring a several epic jams including "Slip Away" and "Big Time" which clock in over 15 minutes each, the live material reveals the magic nature of what happens onstage in the "huddle".
In an interview with Crazy Horse and Neil Young:
- Neil Young: I love that movie and I think it is a perfect add-on for the "Year of The Horse" record.
You can really feel the personal view of a film maker, and above all the movie is about the band. It's more than a simple story, it's an impression, a succession of feelings. I had the idea of doing this movie - I like this kind of stuff and I like to have a camera with me, but Jim made it possible.
Poncho: I always thought that that the story of Crazy Horse was less interesting than his music. It's certainly the more successful movie on Neil Young and Crazy Horse, but for me, this film is just touching on this topic. With all due respect to Jim and his work, I think that the first song in the movie shows more than what you can see in the following hour. So I liked this short movie, but I wouldn't like people to stick to this cinematographic view. It happened so many things in that band, that no one, as a movie maker, will be able to relate."
