Editorial Reviews

Had anyone suggested during the 1980s that Bob Dylan would re-invent himself yet again during the decades that followed, to once more become the music-world's most respected artist, while achieving number one albums along the way, they may well have been met with a wry smile, if not outright derision. But somehow Dylan pulled it off and after a lengthy period of lacklustre music and performances he again became the most important icon of the rock age. This documentary film follows the career and music of Bob Dylan from the aftermath of his stunning 1989 comeback album Oh Mercy and follows his story up to 2006's masterpiece, Modern Times. Featuring a wealth of archive material, performance footage, exclusive and classic interviews, contributions from many close confidantes plus writers and Dylan experts Johnny Rogan, Derek Barker, Clinton Heylin and Nigel Williamson, along with location film, news reports and some of the finest music recorded during the last 20 years

5.0 out of 5 stars Sheds new light on Dylan's latter-day career May 9, 2011
Format:DVD
is a survivor. When he released Oh Mercy in 1989, the album was praised far and wide as his long-awaited return to form. The one-time "Voice of a Generation" had once again begun to restore his vitality. In the two decades that have passed since then, Dylan has produced some of his most consummate work, rivaling many of his songs from the mid-'60s. How did he do it? What constitutes this new vitality? And does his importance today amount to mere icon worship? These are important questions, and the forthcoming DVD documentary, Bob Dylan, 1990-2006: The Never Ending Narrative, answers them.
Who's in the Film?

The Never Ending Narrative is basically a primer for new or old fans that want to understand Dylan in his later years. It's "Post-1990s Bob Dylan 101," chockful of commentary by some of the world's leading Dylanologists and music journalists. There's Clinton Heylin, who's written a half-dozen books about Dylan over the years, most notably Behind the Shades Revisited. Derek Barker, publisher of the Bob Dylan fanzine Isis is on board.

Meanwhile, Rolling Stone magazine's Robert Christgau has been following Dylan for the past few decades and is well-known for his sober, no-holds barred criticism. On the recording end, Mark Howard was the engineer during the Oh Mercy sessions. And then, a few other names are thrown in for color.

This is one of those documentaries that uses the trusty format where the interviewee sits in a chair talking to the camera, and then the screen cuts-to a still photograph which the camera pans over as the voice-over continues.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never Ending August 20, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The "Never Ending Narrative 1990-2006" is, as its title indicates, a video that attempts to portray Dylan's career over roughly a sixteen year period. This is a period that saw many changes in the artist's continual development. The video consists of interviews by journalists and a few musicians who had worked with Dylan during this period. Like its "sister project" -- "Gotta Serve My Time" -- this video is not worth the time it takes to watch it. The "Dylan experts" inflate their egos by dismissing much of the work and misunderstanding almost all of it. Some of the musician's insights are interesting and valuable in understanding the work, but most of the video is weighed down by the gossipy, self-serving opinions of so-called "Dylan-ologists." This is not a very insightful or useful video.

5.0 out of 5 stars ...fourth and long... February 21, 2011
By rocky-o
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This documentary is the 'fourth' one in a terrific series that started with "tales from the golden age", and going thru "after the crash" and "both ends of the rainbow"...

all four of these titles follow the career of the greatest songwriter ever, featuring information and highlights for every dylan fan, presented by fellow musicians and music critics...

now...these pieces are brought to you by the same people who bring us 'rock milestones', 'inside', 'under review' and 'critical review', (amongst others), and sadly, they often get blasted, because people are mistakingly believeing them to feature more music than they actual do...

these are not concerts, nor video collections...these are documentaries by people who know, that you may not know...most of the 'journalists' featured are heavy-duty names in the music industry, from newspapers and magazines that are mostly found in europe, and some of the better new york music locations...

these are not 'nobodys', as some reviews suggest...no, they may not be household names in middle-class america, unless you're knowledge of music runs deep, but these guys were, and still are, the ones going thru it all, as it happens...

...and these documentaries let you go thru it with them...
