    See it in one glorious shot, grab as much from it as you can and run like hell. I say that not because I hated Masked & Anonymous, but because I loved it.
  2. Isn't a good movie, at least by any conventional definition of the word good. But it's not a bad movie, either. It's a Bob Dylan movie.
  3. Only Giovanni Ribisi, with a back-of-the-bus speech about the betrayals of insurgent and counter-insurgent politics, finds a genuine moment. All the same, for some unfathomable reason, Dylan's autumnal self-salute is not particularly difficult to watch.
  4. 30
    After a zippy first hour, the wackos wear out their welcome and the director, perversely, fails to show the big concert.

    The exact cinematic equivalent of a classic Bob Dylan song. It's also proof that what is towering genius in one medium can go insanely wrong in another.
  6. 0
    An incomprehensible Bob Dylan vanity project that is not only nearly impossible to sit through, but embarrasses a long list of stars who lined up to work for scale opposite the legendary musician.

    A unappreciated film with great music, great narrative, and a very intelligent script.

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

    Ugh. Fun to see two northern Minnesota kids(Dylan and Jessica Lange) perform together but, other than that, it is a major disappointment Ugh. Fun to see two northern Minnesota kids(Dylan and Jessica Lange) perform together but, other than that, it is a major disappointment given the strong cast. Expand
