“...we have some history together that hasn’t happened yet.”
― Jennifer Egan, A Visit from the Goon Squad
That's a GREAT doc. Pennybaker made
You're right, Tor -- it's an amazing documentary. "Don't Look Back" showed the backstage and onstage life of Dylan on the 1965 tour. Pennebaker had reels of film he never used, and some of that he put together in an hour long doc, "65 Revisited," which accompanies the special edition DVD release. It gives a different take on the tour, and there is less of the fire-breathing Dylan, and more music. Amazing stuff!
Dylan has been my favorite since my older brother introduced me to his music in early 60s. He is the master.
I just watched "I'm Not There," the weird impressionistic art movie about Dylan (the many Dylans, you might say, with six actors portraying phases of the songwriter's life) and it's not for everybody, but I really liked it. If you're looking for a conventional linear bio-pic, look elsewhere, but if you don't mind a challenging head trip with a great soundtrack, check out this one!
