DISC 1: BOB DYLAN DONT LOOK BACK
This digitally-remastered version of the cinema verite classic follows Dylan on his extraordinary 1965 concert tour of England--his last as an acoustic performer. With unobtrusive equipment and rare access to Dylan, legendary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker achieved an unprecedented, fly-on-the-wall glimpse of one of music's most influential figures--and redefined filmmaking along the way.
DISC 2: BOB DYLAN 65 REVISITED
Forty years after the release of DONT LOOK BACK, D.A. Pennebaker ahs created this new work culled from over 20 hours of never-before-seen rare footage from his personal archive of film negatives. Raw and unassuming, '65 REVISITED provides a fresh perspective of the young Dylan on the road during his 1965 English tour.
BONUS - DONT LOOK BACK COMPANION BOOK & FLIPBOOK
Originally published in 1968, the 168-page companion book features a complete transcription of the film, over 200 photos, and a new forward by D.A. Pennebaker. The collectible Subterranean Homesick Blues flipbook provides a frame-by-frame look at the film's famed 'cue-card' sequence, considered by many to be the first contemporary music video.
DVD Features Include:
Five Additional Uncut Audio Tracks; Two Commentaries by D.A. Pennebaker and tour road manager Bob Neuwirth; Alternate Version of the Subterranean Homesick Blues Cue Card Sequence; Original Theatrical Trailer; D.A. Pennebaker Filmography; Bob Dylan Discography; Cast and Crew Biographies
First released on DVD in 2000, Don't Look Back itself remains an interesting if somewhat self-conscious look at Dylan in the midst of his final all-acoustic tour (when the film was released in '67, he had already, and controversially, plugged in his Fender Stratocaster). His adversarial relationship with the press, fueled both by their often-moronic questions and his deliberate self-mythologizing, his interactions with then-paramour Joan Baez, Donovan (Dylan actually seems less scornful of the folk singer than wary of him), and others, implacable manager Albert Grossman's business dealings, and all the rest of the material prove no less fascinating than was the case four decades ago. This Deluxe Edition includes not only a Pennebaker-Neuwirth commentary track, discographies, and such, but also a book containing a complete transcription of the film and an entertaining frame-by-frame flipbook of the "Subterranean Homesick Blues" cue card sequence (two alternate versions of the sequence are contained in the set, neither nearly as good as the official one). --Sam Graham

Visual/Audio: Is it worth the upgrade? If you don't own "Don't Look Back" and you have an interest in Dylan or film history, this is a pretty significant film--so why not pick up the Blu-ray edition? If you have the earliest DVD release, this is also an easy recommendation for the added features and content. If, however, you have the 2007 standard issue DVD release--things might get a little more complicated unless you are just updating every film in your library. Mastered in High Definition, this new version looks fine, but not significantly superior. Based on the source material, the original aspect ratio is maintained (which it should be) so this will not be shown in widescreen format. The visual and audio presentation (in 2.0) isn't a leap from the 2007 presentation.Read more ›
Apart from the original film, the DVD offers the viewer the unique opportunity of seeing the film (again!) with an ongoing commentary by Pennebaker and Neuwirth themselves, who shed light into what went into nearly every scene.
Besides, the DVD also includes 5 previously unreleased audio tracks (crystal clear quality) recorded in various locations in England during that same tour.
A fascinating and revealing experience not only for the diehard Dylan fan.
