    The 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.

  1. Too often, it’s the MOVIE that isn’t there. What’s meant to be archetypal comes across as superficial.

    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.

    One of the most inventive and joyous movies of the year.
