Neil Young sums up the mood of the country perfectly
26 July 2008 | by (Arlington, VA) – See all my reviews

Once again, Neil Young, a Canadian, sums up the mood of the U.S. (post 9/11 and post 2003 Iraq invasion) perfectly. I felt uneasy watching this film. The footage of CSNY is wonderful---the elusive Crosby, the clumsy but still vital Stills, the optimist Nash, the rabble-rousing Young. The footage from Iraq is shocking. But the most troubling in the film is the Atlanta segment. After nearly eight years of an absolute failure of an administration, one which invaded a nation that never attacked us (how many 9/11 terrorists were from Iraq, again???), I find it shocking that so many people back this President and Vice President, No Questions Asked. Neil Young directs the film (under a pseudonym) and includes footage of Atlanta "fans", angered by the political direction of the concert, demonstrating their disdain towards CSNY in colorful ways (finger gestures and many four letter words). My question to them is WHY would they even see the concert in the first place? Did they ever bother to listen to the lyrics of "Ohio," "For What it's Worth" and "Carry On?" Young could have easily excised that footage out, but he includes it, which leads me to ask if Toby Keith made a documentary, and had opposing views were captured on film, would he include that in the final product? My guess is no—the right point-of-view is the "RIGHT" point-of-view, and no matter how many lies and cover ups are exposed in the Bush administration, these people will stick with them, like Hitler and Goebbels in the bunker. But I digress—this film, like "No End in Sight," "Why We Fight" and "The Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing" before it, is vital viewing for any real American patriot. Thomas Jefferson said that the first act of a true patriot is to question its leaders. And it's safe to say, Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers would be turning over in their graves if they saw how Bush and company have destroyed our country. Thank you Neil Young.
