We gave it an A

”I wanted to explore Bob Dylan’s almost violent need to reject the thing that everybody expected him to be,” says director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) of his approach to the first Dylan feature to be approved by the music legend. ”I figured the strongest way to do that would be to dramatize the changes by depicting him as a series of shifting personas.” To that end, actors such as Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, and even Cate Blanchett portray him. ”Of course,” says Haynes, ”we’re dying for him to see it.”
