At 103 minutes, the length of the film feels just right and has a fitting ending with Young singing solo with guitar over the closing credits. I have seen a lot of good concert films and "Neil Young: Heart of Gold" is one of the best. I would rank it in the same league as Martin Scorsese’s "The Last Waltz" (1978) as he chronicled the last appearance of The Band on Thanksgiving Day of 1976. Coincidently, Neil Young also appeared in that film.
I advise all Neil Young fans to catch this one and take some friends who aren’t familiar with the man from the plains of Canada. I guarantee you will bring about some converts.
