Director Jonathan Demme likes to make movies with Neil Young, and that’s turning out to be a very good thing. In this, their third collaboration, Young returns to Toronto, the city of his birth, to perform a solo show. And when I say solo, I mean solo: Young does it all. He serves up classics like “Ohio” and “After the Gold Rush,” and new songs like the beautiful “Leia,” with no accompaniment. Demme cuts in footage of Young driving around the city, following his brother Bob’s Cadillac and seeing the sights. Nobody shoots a concert better than Demme. He has a mic camera aimed right under the brim of Young’s hat, so you get Neil’s awesome scowling face punching your eyes.
