Jonathan Demme To Do A Fourth Neil Young Movie

Neil Young

Neil Young

It’s heartening to know that Jonathan Demme, the man who directed The Silence Of The Lambs and Philadelphia, is one of us — a music geek.

Sarah found this out when she interviewed Demme about his latest, and third film about Neil Young, Neil Young Journeys. Demme says he intends to do more films with Young, too, along with whatever other creative projects they can come up with.

Neil Young Goes Sound Nerd At TIFF

When Neil Young and Jonathan Demme debuted their new concert film Neil Young Journeys at the Toronto International Film Festival on Sept. 12 one of the defining characteristics of the whole event was what they did to the theatre they presented it in.

Basically they went super-mega acoustic nerd on the whole thing, adding speakers and tweaking the sound system. Then they talked to the audience about what exactly they did.

Sarah wrote about it for Spinner Canada. You can read the story here.
