Jonathan Demme goes on another journey with Neil Young

Sony Picture Classics

Jonathan Demme is a tough guy to nail down. He has made a career of creating very different, but successful films. Everything from “The Silence of the Lambs” to “Rachel Getting Married” and the documentary “Jimmy Carter Man from Plains.” And the three concert documentaries he’s done with Neil Young are no different. They’ve all looked at Young and his music from different angles.

The latest “Neil Young Journeys” documents a road trip from his hometown of Omemee, Ontario to Toronto’s Massey Hall in a 1956 Crown Victoria. Demme speaks with Patt on today’s show about the journey to direct his latest film project.

Guest:

Jonathan Demme, producer, film director, “The Silence of the Lambs,” “Jimmy Carter Man from Plains”documentary; directed three documentaries about musician Neil Young; his latest film “Neil Young Journeys” premieres tonight at the LA Film Festival
