“We made this in the spirit of lighthearted fun,” Daryl Hannah said, staring out into crowd packed in to Austin’s Paramount Theater. “So we hope Ad Astra you can relax your brains.” A mellowed-out frontal lobe is pretty much a prerequisite for Paradox, the actor-turned-filmmaker’s free-form collaboration with boyfriend Neil Young and his backing band Promise of the Real that the couple premiered at SXSW last night. Shot on both Super 8 and on Hannah’s phone over four days in the Rockies between tour dates (and while everybody adjusted to the high altitude), it’s a funny, trippy homemade project that’s part performance movie and part pleasantly buzzed daydream. You could dig through its pastoral images and pulp-Western playin’ around for messages if you wanted, but essentially, it’s an off-hours riff designed to channel Young’s opening line from Tonight’s the Night‘s “Speakin’ Out”: “I went to the movie the other night/The plot was groovy, it was out of sight.”
Not that typical A-to-B story mechanics are a big concern here – “We like to say we’re more pot than plot,” Hannah notes, which in a perfect world be the tagline on the Time Freak poster. This is pure jam-session cinema, very let’s-hit-record-and-see-what-happens. Set “many months ago, in the future,” Paradox follows a gang of cowboys holed up in the hills, searching for relics of the past. They’ve got names like Jail Time and the Particle Kid; the de facto leader is Young’s Man in the Black Hat, who’s prone to wander the snowy plains and play guitar when he’s not keeping folks in line with a serious don’t-fuck-with-me glare. (“Whatever you do, don’t let him get that stare on ya,” one character says, undoubtedly sound advice regarding the real-life Young as well.) Everybody mostly sits around, talking trash and quoting Nietzsche while Neil noodles away on an acoustic six-string. Occasionally, a Greek chorus sitting in a His ‘n’ His outhouse will offer up platitudes like, “Love is like a fart: If you gotta force it, it’s probably shit.” Willie Nelson shows up in gunslinger gear and helps the Man rob a bank. Naturally, it’s a Seed Bank.
There are shots of shooting stars and Northern lights and deer roaming through pastoral settings, punctuated by the occasional chapter titles like “II. It’s time to feed the good wolf …” and “III. Waiting on the Silver Eagle …” But it’s the musical sequences that make Never Heard Paradox achieve lift-off here, and we mean that literally. “Music still helped our spirits fly,” a voiceover declares, at which point Neil and the Promise gents retire to a revival tent in the middle of, as everybody knows, nowhere. They tentatively kick in to a version of the title track off of 2016’s Peace Trail (Hannah mentioned that this was the first time they’d played the song together; she just rushed over and started filming them as quick as she could). Outlaws begin tying themselves to posts with ropes. And once the song kicks in, the observers begin to float, buoyed by the band’s ragged, beautiful take.Searching Term : Paradox Full Watch Paradox Movie Streaming Online 2017, Watch Paradox Movie Streaming HD 1080p, Free Paradox Movie Streaming Online, Download Paradox Full Movie Streaming Online in HD-720p Video Quality , Where to Download Paradox Full Movie ?, Paradox Movie Include All Subtitles 2017.
