If you were a fan of director Jonathan Demme’s concert film Heart of Gold, you will love his latest concert documentary, which is part two of a trilogy celebrating Neil Young’s music. Neil Young Trunk Show opened this weekend in key cities to very good reviews.

Peter Hartlaub wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle, "Young is back onstage, surrounded by his guitars, and all is well again. 'Neil Young Trunk Show' features two great artists - Demme and Young - continuing to find new ways to please their fans."

Gorgeous rarities like 'Kansas' tumble out alongside classics such as 'Cinnamon Girl' or 'Like a Hurricane.' And if he has overlooked your favorites, have faith: There’s plenty left in the trunk for that promised encore.

At 64, Young keeps getting better with age.  Action is mostly covered with handheld cameras, usually in close-up while Young's on the mike. As Tricia Olszewski wrote in the Washington City Paper, " a whole will leave any music lover giddy. It earns the highest compliment a concert film can get: You forget you’re watching a movie and instead feel like you’ve got the best seat in the house."
