PARK CITY, Utah — Neil Young recalls how his first concert film with director Jonathan Demme was a lush, stately tribute to country music.
He says their latest, "Neil Young Journeys," is more like an electric bolt, with a "grinding, blinding beauty to it."
Their 2006 film "Neil Young: Heart of Gold" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and was a reflective, comforting chronicle of two shows Young performed alongside such longtime musical comrades as Emmylou Harris, Ben Keith and Spooner Oldham.
"Journeys" is a raw, thunderous counterpart, filmed by Demme during the closing shows of Young's solo tour last year.
The film played Saturday at the Slamdance Film Festival, a rival showcase to Sundance. Demme says it was a fitting place because both Slamdance and the film share something of a "bad-boy" attitude.
