Six times Dylan + direction by Haynes = great — 5 years ago
Six characters play Bob Dylan during different stages of his career. Never mind that he’s played by a child, by men of different ages and a woman; this is poetry. Actually, poetry and a lot of Dylan’s anger and an explicit insight into his music. As free-wheelin’ as the man himself seems to me, this is very well directed considering Haynes has made me feel that it’s a complete film despite six totally different story-lines being weaved throughout the story. Extra kudos to Blanchett; call me stupid, but I didn’t know it was she until the very last frame of her.
