Bob Dylan: 1975-1981 Rolling Thunder and The Gospel Years

Genre: Documentary; Starring: Bob Dylan; Director: Joel Gilbert; MPAA Rating: Unrated

If you can handle the four-hour length and filmmaker Joel Gilbert’s Dylan obsession, this ”totally unauthorized” doc Bob Dylan: 1975-1981 Rolling Thunder and The Gospel Years illuminates a peculiar time in Dylan’s career. Ramblin’ Jack Elliott and Scarlet Rivera recount the Rolling Thunder Revue and Dylan’s ”Vegas entertainer” era. The bits on Dylan’s born-again phase are a jaw-dropping look back at when he lost himself in a new faith — or completely lost it.

COOL CURIO Audiotapes of Bob chastising an audience about Judgment Day.
