Review this movie
Sep 3, 2010The many faces & phases of Bob Dylan.
It's painfully pretentious, gruellingly long & quite disjointed.
It's saving graces, however, are great performances by Heath Ledger & Cate Blanchett & of course the fantastic music.
The film though just didn't work for me at all.
So what if nothing is revealed. Todd Haynes is a mischievous visionary who puts the music and the myth of Bob Dylan before us in I'm Not There and dares us not to revel in the troubadour's poetic, contentious, ever-changing essence. It's a feast for the eyes, the ears and the Dylanologist scratching around our minds and hearts.
