Year of the Horse

Year of the Horse: "Proudly filmed in 8mm," declared the opening credits of Jarmusch's first documentary, 1996's Year of the Horse, a concert film featuring his friend Neil Young and Young's band Crazy Horse. Blown up to 35mm, the celluloid grained out as Crazy Horse marshaled their infamous mid-tempo stomp underneath Young's coruscating solos. Jarmusch employed interview footage from 1976 and 1986 as well as from the '96 tour, and, in covering one song, "Like a Hurricane," he flashed back to a performance shot a decade earlier, giving the film not only the raw immediacy of a rock concert but also capturing the haunting affects of time gone by.
