Editorial Reviews

Inspired by the life and songs of Bob Dylan, I'm Not There is "a profoundly personal and passionate film" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times) that captures the essence of this elusive genius. Six different actors -- including Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere and Oscar® nominee Cate Blanchett in a "soon-to-be-legendary performance" (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone) - each embody part of the Dylan legend: from Greenwich Village folk singer to electric guitar trailblazer to born-again preacher. Directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven), I'm Not There is "unquestionably the year's most original American movie" (Thelma Adams, US Weekly).

5.0 out of 5 stars Extras-Packed Collector's Edition! May 2, 2008
By Cubist
Format:DVD
Director Todd Haynes has reinvented the musician biopic by manipulating its conventions to suit its subject instead of the other way around which is what has always been done in the past. I'm Not There invites us into Bob Dylan's brain and has look at the world through his eyes. We also see how Dylan is perceived by the media and his fans. Because Haynes is pushing the genre to its extremes the film is quite hard to follow at times as we jump all over the place in time and are confronted by various takes on Dylan. However, I think it is a film that will only improves on subsequent viewings as what Haynes is doing becomes more apparent and understood.

On the first disc there is "An Introduction" featuring four text essays that help one get a handle on the film. "Who's Not There: Six Faces of Dylan" explains who each of the six Dylans the actors are playing and what they represent. "Tangled Up in Clues" claims that Haynes' film is "an homage to 1960s art films." It does an excellent job of breaking the film down to its basic elements. "Decoding an Entertaining Enigma" examines each incarnation of Dylan in the film. "Notes on I'm Not There" is written by noted critic Greil Marcus and features a solid analysis of the film.

There is an audio commentary by co-writer/director Todd Haynes. He talks about how he rediscovered Bob Dylan's music and his life via biographies. Haynes talks about how he pitched the project to Dylan and how he was inspired by the cinema of the 1960s because that was the time period where most of the film was set. Haynes certainly knows his Dylan history and does a great job analyzing his film and talking about the changes he made while shooting it. This is an engaging and informative track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dylan Mosaic Blends and Clashes December 25, 2007
After `Don't Look Back' and Martin Scorsese's `No Direction Home' Bob Dylan - No Direction Home what's left? With a subject as complex and multi-faceted as Dylan, it only makes sense to do more. Just look at Dylan's memoir/autobiography, `Chronicles'. We were given so much in Volume 1, but we know there's much more to come. And that's just from him. To capture all aspects of Dylan, there's `I'm Not There'. With portrayals by six actors, each representing an aspect of his life, we get a Dylan mosaic that both blends and clashes.

This is partly true because of Dylan himself, but it's also true because of the nature of the project. At its best the movie is an effectively surreal portraiture. At its worst it becomes a lingering still life that quickly needs the next piece in the gallery or provides some substandard reflections. More than half of the songs are Dylan's originals, but some of the covers are fairly effective, too. I was personally glad to have so many songs from his (subjectively greatest) masterpiece, ' Blonde on Blonde', but there is a wealth of material they use throughout. Their selection is nearly flawless.

One thing's for sure it's comprehensive. Having read the first `Chronicles,' having seen the aforementioned films, and owning several of his recordings, most of the time director, Todd Haynes, is right on the money. Not having read Dylan's own thoughts in 'Tarantula' or seen his portrayal in 'Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid' there are gaps that inevitably are provided for us. Still, the mosaic of Dylan effectiveness depends on the actor as well as the scene.

How does each actor do?

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, but only for a very particular group of people. December 23, 2008
Format:DVD
I adored this film. It is more like a puzzle or mosaic than a story, but it comes closer than anything yet to painting a good picture of such an interesting man.

This film is nonlinear and abstract - people who like a concise, plot based story are not going to like it. People who don't know or care much about Dylan's career probably won't get much out of it.

But for those of us who are diehard Dylan fans and enthusiasts, it is a very rewarding experience. You will recognize particular scenes and shots. You will marvel at how many known aspects of the man are shown.

I recommend this film, but only to diehard Dylan fans and fans of nonlinear storytelling.

2.0 out of 5 stars Everywhere And Nowhere... July 3, 2008
By JG
Format:DVD
I have been a fan of Dylan for 40 years and while it is interesting to see some key moments of his biography reenacted...Newport switching from folf to rock, The UK Royal Albert Hall incident, visiting Guthrie in the hospital, truth be told the actors depicting the different sides/personalities were irritating, screeching,egoistic,childish and had nothing to do with this mercurial, enigmatic icon, The REAL Dylan is best captured in Scorsese's " No Direction Home" and "Don't Look Back" another good one.

The Cowboy Junkies did a song "Cheap is How I Feel" and that is why this movie disappoints.. calling Dylan Edelstein, his roving with Ginsburg, his vomiting, come on....taking well known aspects of the picture and highlighting them for consumerism is not the real Dylan in my minds eye.Dylan is complicated stuff and this movie sure isn't despite the occasional wisdom lines.
Seeing a young conning hustling Black Dylan, a spaced out mercurial Dylan, An old drifter, recluse etc. is one mans image of Dylan..the pictures that come to my mind is very different..I don't think the portrayal can be captured effectively and one is left with a jumble..Yes, the best line in the movie is at the end "living with past,present future,
in the same room" and that is why I'm Not There is neither here or there and to quote from an album title "Time Out Of Mind"..his later life neglected in the movie.

Where is Dylan the mystic?? The man standing in Jerusalem not as a convert to Christianity BUT as a man grappling with his contradictions?
