It certainly stays alive in this spare and intriguing film directed by Jonathan Demme, who has helmed two previous Young concert films.

Of course, the music is the thing and the sounds here earn Demme's reverence.

Journeys, shot on the last two nights of Young's 2011 solo world tour, is essential Neil Young.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Peter Hartlaub
Half of one song is performed with a speck of saliva on the camera. More casual fans will twist in their chairs uncomfortably, wishing that a roadie would walk up and wipe it off. Neil Young die-hards will cherish the spittle.

I'd say the movie does a fine job of completing the trilogy, but I wouldn't be surprised if Demme and Young have more in them yet.

Over all, Neil Young Journeys is a pretty solemn affair, kinda like the man himself.

By Michelle Orange
The audience is never seen and only faintly heard. This puts a lot of visual pressure on a very inward performer. Young is a beast onstage, to be sure - he seems to re-grow an appendix for each song.

Chicago Tribune

By Michael Phillips
With its one-of-a-kind poetic lamentation, Young's voice sounds more peculiarly lovely than ever. A small picture, but good and true.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Neil Young Journeys is easily the least of the three documentaries director Jonathan Demme has made with the legendary rocker; but in its shaggy, eccentric way, it may be the truest.
