Plot Summary
Recalling the antiwar sentiment of his band Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young's music from the Vietnam era, musician Neil Young (using the pseudonym Bernard Shakey) directed this anti-Iraq War documentary, which follows the group's 2006 "Freedom of Speech" tour. The film combines music from Young's controversial "Living with War" album with footage of the touring band during the U.S. midterm elections in 2006, while it also examines the ongoing relationship between art and politics.

  • The average age of the band's members is 62. They don't even bother to disguise that fact. These men look like your grandfather, right up until the downbeat. Then the magnificence of their playing sweeps away all concepts of age. Rock on. show more

  • By no means a typical concert movie; the selections are played mostly in short takes and snippets. It's more a road movie with music, its war topic treated with earnest seriousness. show more

  • Doesn’t break any new documentary ground, but it does exactly what it sets out to do: Preserve a live event and make it available to a broader audience. show more
