Dir. Martin Scorsese. 2006, 207 mins. DCP. With Bob Dylan. A rare theatrical screening of Scorsese’s monumental yet intimate portrait of the great singer/songwriter and Nobel laureate, Bob Dylan. The film focuses on the years 1961 to 1966, when Dylan made the voyage from Hibbing, Minnesota, to Greenwich Village, New York, and emerged as one of the most singular artists of his time. The film is a bonanza of archival footage, interviews with such figures as Allen Ginsberg, Joan Baez, and Pete Seeger, and a candid and revealing new interview with Dylan himself.
“A portrait that is deep, sympathetic, perceptive and yet finally leaves Dylan shrouded in mystery, which is where he properly lives.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
