Dir. Todd Haynes. 2007, 135 mins. 35mm. With Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Heath Ledger, Ben Whishaw, Richard Gere, Marcus Carl Franklin. Haynes’s majestic and freewheeling meditation on the different identities of Bob Dylan is a cinematic tour de force that features six different actors as Dylan. Working closely with cinematographer Ed Lachman, Haynes creates different cinematic styles to formally match each of these personae, creating a thrilling compendium of genres and narratives, constantly reframing one another. Blanchett, who received an Oscar nomination for her interpretation of “Jude Quinn,” the inscrutable, Warhol Factory, Dont Look Back–era version of Dylan, is indeed magnificent, but all of the performers, from Franklin’s adolescent “Woody Guthrie” to Ledger’s Hollywood actor “Robbie Clark” to Gere’s taciturn “Billy the Kid” contribute rich variations on a theme.
