Televised Tune: On The Tube This Week

Jonathan Demme, better known for directing the Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs and the Talking Heads’ masterpiece Stop Making Sense, documents Neil Young’s two 2005 shows at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium for Heart of Gold (Thursday at 9PM on Palladia), one of the most underrated concert films ever. The first half features tunes from Young’s Prairie Wind while the second half showcases Young classics like I Am a Child, Old Man, Needle and the Damage Done and Cortez the Killer. Through interviews and concert footage, Demme captures countless poignant moments of a living legend including the film’s final shot.
