i'm not there..


A friend told me last night about a Bob Dylan movie that I never knew existed. It's called I'm Not There starring Cate Blanchett, Christen Bale, Richard Gere, Kris Kristofferson and the late Heath Ledger.


As per the plot outline on Internet Movie Databse the movie "puts Dylan's music behind their adventures, soliloquies, interviews, marriage, and infidelity. Recreate 1960s documentaries in black and white. Put each at a crossroads, the artist becoming someone else. Jack, the son of Ramblin' Jack Elliott, finds Jesus; handsome Robbie falls in love then abandons Claire. Woody, a lad escaped from foster care, hobos the U.S. singing; Billy awakes in a valley threatened by a six-lane highway; Rimbaud talks. Jude, booed at Newport when he goes electric, fences with reporters, pundits, and fans. He won't be classified."


Hopefully I'll be able to check it out soon.
