Dead Man music score ranked #2

johnny-depp-in-dead-man-scored-by-neil-youngMusic Times ranks Neil Young’s “Dead Man” music score number 2 out of 7 top rock music scores of all time.

Guess which one is number 1#.

The publication writes:

“Neil Young’s score for Jim Jarmusch’s western Dead Man wasn’t actually composed. Rather, Young stood in a recording studio with some instruments and simply improvised music while watching a cut of the film. The resulting music is at times atmospheric and chaotic.”

Uncut reviews Year of the Horse

The October 2013 issue of Uncut features a DVD review of  Jim Jarmusch concert documentary “Year of the Horse”  shot in 1996.

Yoth_dvdThey write: “This isn’t older musicians trying to sustain some delusion of youthful potency;  this is a bunch of middle-aged men, led by a surly, stomping guitarist in baggy  knee-length shorts and a nondescript T-shirt.

” But the very lack of  self-conscious stagecraft carries with it the implication that what you’re being  given is something purely musical, unmediated by modern digital strategies that  demand everything be a multi-platform, multi-media, interactive experience. It’s  pure rock’n’roll, as the introductory tagline explain:

“Made loud to be played  loud. CRANK IT UP!”.
It’s far from the ideal Neil and Crazy Horse setlist, Uncut opines,  with only a handful of  classics – including a version of “Tonight’s The Night” following a segment  about the deaths of Danny Whitten and Bruce Berry – sprinkled  parsimoniously through the show.

But it barely matters: as Young maintains,  “It’s all one song,” an ongoing flow of music hewn into eight-to ten-minute  chunks. And any technical effects are kept to a minimum, and used subtly, as  when stage footage of the band playing “Slips Away” is blended with a tour bus  shot of passing sky and landscape.

Toronto Star TIFF article

Sharry reports:

The following article about the screening of Jonathan Demme’s
documentary “Neil Young Life,” plus his and Neil’s personal apperances at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday, September 12 was published today in the Toronto Star. I believe this same article by Peter Howell has also been posted online at the TIFF website.

I’m planning to purchase tickets for this on Saturday, September 3. I was disappointed to learn that the TFF box office won’t be selling non-member single tickets until then. Let’s hope they have a few tickets left when I call. The film is being screened at the Princess of Wales Theatre of King St. W. (That’s where Jonathan Demme will also have a dialogue with Neil on stage.)

‘Neil Young Life’ Documentary to Premiere at TIFF

‘Neil Young Life’ Documentary to Premiere at TIFF
Posted on on Spinner on Aug 23rd 2011 3:29PM by Jenny Charlesworth

Neil Young fans will be clamouring to get tickets to to the TIFF premiere of Jonathan Demme’s latest flick about the ‘Harvest Moon’ crooner. Demme, whose previous films include ‘Neil Young: Heart of Gold’ and ‘Neil Young: Trunk Show’ (not to mention a little flick called ‘The Silence of the Lambs’) outs himself as a full-on fanboy with this third doc.

‘Neil Young Life,’ which debuts Sept. 12 in Toronto and is based on a pair of performances the Canadian folk-rocker did in the city earlier this year at Massey Hall, is the latest music-related film to be announced as part of TIFF’s 2011 programing. As Spinner previously reported, docs on both Pearl Jam (directed by Cameron Crowe) and U2 will also be screened during the film fest. These films will be pretty tough to get into unless you’ve got a hook-up, so you better start scanning your Rolodex now.

Ed Note: Neil is also planning to speak at this event.
