We'll let you take a breath after that title...
We're back with yet another supplement of our collective review of the art of film looking at men who led bands. However today we look at one man who needed no band, he was a true individual and continues to be iconic. He represents far to much for one film to fit in but none the less Todd Hayness had a go thus we shall too.
I'm Not There
Basics: Seven people depict 7 different aspects of the brilliant songsmith known as Bob Dylan. Additionally a smorgasbord of famous faces and names adorn the screen and credits of the soundtrack.
Best Bit: Marcus Carl Franklin performance is light years ahead of his age, Allen Ginsberg on a golf cart, Charlotte Gainsbourg and lastly the fanciful performance of "Going to Acapulco" by Jim James & Calexico.
Bit Too Much: 2hr 15min runtime. As good as the actors are and as good as the music is a bit of an edit would have helped this fairy-tale of a film maintain it's genius.
On a final note we may be "photographers" but we are not sure who dropped the ball on the movie poster. Its pretty clear to us that the one above we discovered deep in Google Image is far superior and better at conveying the concept of the film than the silhouette poster used.
