Neil Young has made a western and he will be launching it at SXSW.
Paradox stars Young, Willie Nelson, Nelson’s sons Lucas and Micah, Corey McCormick, Anthony LoGerfo, Tato Melgar, Charris Ford and Dulcie Clarkson Ford and, according to the SXSW program, is a “far-fetched, whimsical western tale of music and love. Somewhere in the future past, The Man in the Black Hat hides out between heists at an old stagecoach stop with Jail Time, the Particle Kid, and an odd band of outlaws. Mining the detritus of past civilizations, they wait… for the Silver Eagle, for the womenfolk, and for the full moon’s magic to give rise to the music and make the spirits fly.”
Young’s significant other, actress Daryl Hannah, directed and wrote the film.
Other music oriented films at SXSW:
