Only for die hard Neil Young fans
31 October 2018 | by brianhamilton-76406See all my reviews

Unless you're a Neil Young die-hard, you're likely to find Year of the Horse unbearable. What's especially shocking is that it comes from a talented director like Jarmusch, who is known for intelligent, thought-provoking pictures. Evidently, his feature film making ability doesn't translate into the documentary realm. Year of the Horse is one of 1997's ugliest dogs. It's supposed to be a high- energy concert film that captures the intensity and camaraderie of the band members on and off- stage. What it turns out to be, however, is an overlong home movie with bad video and barely- adequate sound.
