Are you there?

Very artistic movie. Go there if you like Dylan's music and don't expect it to be the story of his life. Because it's not. This is the movie for artists about the artist. Don't expect suspence, don't expect bright protagonist-antagonist conflict. Don't expect any developments of the characters. Don't think when you watch the movie. Don't look for any connections between the pieces. It's not a puzzle. Brilliant acting, except Gere's performance (let's face it, he can't act). Brilliant editing work. Brilliant music (duh, it's Dylan!). As for directing... it's a very good art piece. But this is the kind of art that doesn't raise any questions. This movie is about nothing, just beautiful images based on the art of the extra-ordinary man. Will you enjoy it? If you like art you will. Will it change your life? I doubt it.

it doesn't make sense if you don't know Dylan's life

it doesn't make sense if you don't know Dylan's life, so if you are planing in going first read about him. Teh movie is well filmed but it seemed to be too long.

If you are a bob dylan fan you will enjoy this movie. Cate Blanchette was AMAZING!! The music was great (duh) Very artsy-fartsy and impressed with itself, not bad, but I think it missed it's mark.

I'm Not There

Simply too disjointed and weird. I love Dylan and his ability to inspire. This was not about Dylan but about the period of time we all lived through.

Horrible and Pretentious

My friend and I are big movie-goers and love indie movies and my friend is a huge fan of Dylan and this movie was awful. It was so obvious that the director was so absorbed with the film that he couldn't edit out one single thing. It was so unbearable long! The plot made no sense and people in the audience were leaving and this was at a theater that only plays independents, if that is any sign of the movie goers. There were circus people, Billy the Kid and a black kid who is also Dylan-What??? It was absurd, stupid and such a waste of my time, even the acting didn't impress me enough to recommend it even to Dylan's biggest fans.
