A loud Poem. A whimsical western tale of music and love.
A loud Poem. A whimsical western tale of music and love.
Writer and director Daryl Hannah doesn't lie when she says this isn't a real film, and a real film Netflix's Paradox without a shadow of a doubt isn't, as it's really more like an ugly, pretentious, profoundly nonsensical feature-length music video that borders on unwatchable and is entirely devoid of any sort of purpose.
A dithering hippie fever dream that’s completely lost in our modern world.
Of course it’s mostly ones and twos on this site...
What else would it be?
Neil is a man without a country these days, but I’m on board with anything that gets his crotchety ass up to run the interview circuit bemoaning google algorithms, arguing about Pono and demolishing his “good friend” Don Trump to the likes of The Daily Beast.
Who would of thought Neil would find his Yoko when he was a septuagenarian?
The mermaid from Splash placates Neil like she’s his mother and does have some visual chops to match.
But this thing doesn’t really kick into gear until the concert stuff. The “Man in the…
I think I just saw the country and western version of The Room.
Neil Young has had a long career of throwing people off and judging by the reviews it seems nothing has changed on that front. I have grown up listening to his music, reading stories of his speed of light change of mind and hearing interviews from former and bitter band members. This time Mr Young has enlisted current lover Daryl Hannah to direct this long form music video. If this came out in the 90s it would have been recieved with open arms. His die hard fan base would throw their hard earned cash at the clerk as they rush home to unwrap the plastic wrapped VHS and slide it in the VCR, pressing play giddily. This wasn’t released in…
I'm a fan of Neil Young's music but what the actual fuck is this?
Edit: Why does this exist?
Holy shit, Willie Nelson isn't dead?
I'm pleased as punch that Netflix is finally getting in on the terrible movie scene. You may joke that that's always been the case, but most of their Originals range from good to mediocre, but rarely truly awful. When they do produce something bad, such as The Do-Over, it leapfrogs over enjoyment into pure tedium.
This stupid bullshit is worth ten Adam Sandler movies.
73 minutes of Neil Young music and whimsical "let's bring a camera in the woods and make a western with all of our loved ones" is a-ok by me
The worst film to come out this year with the word paradox in the title
sooo this is the second worst netflix original I’ve seen in 2018 with the word paradox in the title.
here are some choice quotes:
“smoke a beer”
“drink a joint”
“love is like a fart; if you force it, it’s probably shit”
“things go around in circles” “what kind of things” “everything”
Netflix proving they have money to burn in taking on the distribution of Daryl Hannah’s directorial debut. It’s an ill-conceived attempt at meshing a tone poem with a concert film, but the metaphysical babble that suffocates the all-too-brief musical performances is as insufferable as the worst kind of student films. When Neil Young and company take the stage, there is a small glimpse of what might have been, but this is snatched away almost as quickly as it appears, and we’re forced to put up with another round of pseudo-intellectual bullshit. I ain’t itching to see what’s next from Daryl Hannah, this much is certain.
Maybe for Neil Young fans this might be something worth looking at, but as far as an actual movie this is one of the worst year and definitely one of the worst Netflix original movies. To even call this a movie is very debatable, because it feels more like a collection of music, traveling videos, a random person talking that really doesn’t have much to do with anything and much more. It also feels like it’s trying to be way more than it really is, from what I can tell there is no actual plot. That’s the major thing about this “movie” it doesn’t have any focus whatsoever it just does whatever it wants, also the movie feels and looks…
Profoundly and indisputably awful and nonsensical; I need to stop adding certain things on my watchlist because of the movie poster. I can’t think of another reason as to why I would be interested in watching something like this.
Don’t be fooled by the short running time...this is a loooooooooong film.
The music is, as expected, sublime. The rest of it, not so much.
They casted an Argentinian with a notable accent to play a Mexican. They didn't even try.
Lets hear the dead man

Listen along as we discuss Netflix’s seventy-fourth film, the 2018 musical film ‘Paradox’ directed by Daryl Hannah starring Neil Young and his band, Promise of the Real.
A painful ‘film’ for every minute of its duration. There is no cohesive narrative and the synopsis is extremely generous and far more endearing than the final product. With clear references to 8 1/2 and truly awful camera work, this glorified extended music video, can only succeed for avid Neil Young fans.
Watched on Netflix.
A half-baked hybrid of a post-network decay history channel special and an awful music video from artists way past their peak or cultural relevance.
This movie is inspiring. If this piece of garbage can make it to SXSW then so can anything. A movie about paint drying? Still better than this. A movie solely revolving around old people coughing? Miles above this. You get the picture...
Really took a turn for the worst at the end there
it's good. it's neil fucking young
