Description: Independent film hero Jim Jarmusch followed Neil Young & Crazy Horse during their 1996 world tour and captured it on handheld Super-8. Spliced with archival footage shot by Young and with current interviews from all band members and Young's father, the result is not so much an overview of the band's career as an homage to the power of the band's consistent and timeless work as a four-piece. With three other Neil Young concert films available on home video (Rust Never Sleeps, Weld, Neil Young Unplugged) Year of the Horse seems a bit redundant, but was obviously a labor of love for Jarmusch. Though the current concert footage seems to drag on (Crazy Horse's propensity for endless jamming isn't exciting every night), the old backstage interviews and a classic clip of live Young from 1976 is worth the viewing.~ Denise Sullivan, All Movie Guide
