    Like a rare poison dart frog, I can appreciate the miracle of its evolution without wanting to pick it up and kiss it.

    "Masked and Anonymous" might've been a modest success, and not merely a curiousity, if more time was spent on Jack Fate's journey to the benefit concert. Dylan arrives at his destination and we get a mind-numbing amount of repetitive scenes(concert promoter quarrels, obnoxious journalism, and band rehearsal) that feel like outtakes. He gets there and then the film goes nowhere. "Masked and Anonymous" might've been a modest success, and not merely a curiousity, if more time was spent on Jack Fate's journey to the benefit concert.

He gets there and then the film goes nowhere. Dylan can't act, but he makes one heck of a spectacle every second that he's on the screen. When Bob is literally blowin' in the wind, we'll all reassess this goofy movie as a misunderstood gem. Expand

    It's only when the film attempts to express its ideas in spoken English that logic dissolves into a muddle that would test the most rabid Dylanologist.
  2. The film strains for some kind of meaning, but asks you to do the work it can't and won't perform on its own.
  3. An unholy, incoherent mess.
