Synopsis


I'm Not There
Director Todd Haynes' unconventional biopic of the legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan features different actors playing the part of the Minnesota native at various stages of his remarkable career. Among the actors playing the singer are Cate Blanchett, who portrays the man during his Don't Look Back era incarnation; Heath Ledger, as an actor playing one of the fictional Dylans in a movie within the movie; Christian Bale, as the Dylan beginning to chafe at being associated so strongly with political causes; Richard Gere, portraying the post-motorcycle accident period; and Marcus Carl Franklin as the young Dylan who passed himself off as the second coming of Woody Guthrie. Each section of the film not only has a different lead actor, but offers different looks that reflect various aspects of popular culture at the time. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

    Great Movie!

    Great movie, as I am a Bob Dylan fan. As a previous reviewer has said, if you don't know a lot about Dylan's life, you most likely will not understand the movie. The director and writers went about a different look by having many different actors play Dylan. I think Blanchett actually played him the best. I recommend this movie to any Dylan fan, or music fans alike.

    Faces of Bob Dylan

    I thought it was an interesting movie, especially interested to see Cate Blanchett play Bob Dylan. My favorite Bob Dylan was Christian Bale though. I thought the movie probably would not appeal to those that do not know much of Bob Dylan though. If you know nothing about the artist then the movie seems very disconnected and strange.
