In the trailer for the Daryl Hannah-directed film Paradox, Neil Young plays the “Man in the Black Hat,” who is described as “being kind of shady.” The film follows a band of outlaws: “The Man in The Black Hat,” “Particle Kid” (Micah Nelson), and “Jail Time” (Lukas Nelson). These outlaws pass the time by “digging for treasure while they wait for the full moon to bring its magic, the music and let the spirits fly.”
The movie is described as a “fantasy, a loud poem and a whimsical tale of music and love”, which can be seen in the very surreal and fantastical cowboy-themed trailer. Willie Nelson (whose sons are both in the film as part of Young’s gang) is also featured in the film along with Young’s band, Promise of the Real.
The whimsical film premieres only on Netflix on March 23. Watch the trailer below:
