Neil Young's Movie "Paradox", Directed by Daryl Hannah, to Show on Netflix

by Paul Cashmere, Noise11

Paradox, the Daryl Hannah directed Neil Young movie premiering at SXSW 2018, has been picked up by Netflix.

Hannah describes Paradox as “a loud poem”.

The movie is somewhat of a cowboy flick with Young starring with his band Promise of the Real featuring Lukas Nelson. Lukas’ father Willie Nelson is also in the movie.

Paradox sprung up spontaneously and unexpectedly, like a peculiar dandelion, popping up between the cracks in the pavement,” Darly Hannah said in a statement. “We were fortunate to find this brief window of opportunity to share the love for the natural world, each other and for the precious seeds of creativity and life. We are all thrilled the film will premiere at SXSW and that Netflix will be sharing it with the world.”

The film will premiere at the SXSW Film Festival at the Paramount Theatre, Austin, TX, on March 15, 2018 at 7:00 PM.

The movie blurb states, “Time is fluid in this 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”.
