I'm Not There is an unconventional journey into the life and times of Bob Dylan. Cate Blanchette, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Marcus Carl Franklin and Ben Whishaw portray Dylan as a series of shifting personae - from the public to the private to the fantastical - weaving together a rich and colourful portrait of this ever elusive American idol.

 Great film

| | See all AlexLehmann's reviews (11)

Being a huge Bob Dylan fan, I was a bit skeptic about this film, however, I turned out to be wrong. This is a great and imaginative film, that got too little attention that year. The film is a bit cathartic and explosive, however, this is done in a positive way by director Todd Haynes.

The subject of Dylan is handled very efficiently. However, this film might not be for everybody, and many might think its a bit too vague or "out there", and at some times requires some knowledge about Dylan and his life. However, for a fan of him, this is great.

This film spends more time trying to be clever than telling a good story. Its the type of thing the academies will go nuts for, because the critics don't understand it so they call it brilliant so that they seem intelligent.

The acting is good, but the story jumps around all over the place, even if you can get over Dylan being played by a black kid that looks about 10 years old, then Batman, then a woman, you still end up struggling to see the point of the movie. I get the idea, the different actors representing the different personae and the different influences and stages in his life, I expected that and was looking forward to seeing how they executed it. They executed it poorly.

I was really dissapointed, because I bought this for my father who is a big Dylan fan, he wanted to turn it off after the first 10 minutes, but we watched the whole thing, I say watched, I mean endured. He has been a fan of Dylan since he played folk music, and he could identify who each character was meant to be, no mean feat when they use fake names and characters that neither look, sound, nor act like the real ones. If a life long Dylan fan can't follow the plot then how would someone who knows nothing about him manage?

This was an experiment gone badly wrong, it fails to do the basic thing that all films must do, and that is entertain the audience.

 Superb Dylan film

I thought this was a fantastic film. Very 'Art House' though and as a result I was unsure what to make of it as I left the cinema but thinking about it more and more since I've realized just how good and refreshing it is. Cate Blanchett is fantastic! Really stole the show for me. My favourite scene by far is the metaphorical depiction of the moment Dylan 'went electric'. Fantastic piece of cinema!

 Not just for Bob fans.

Of course the question begs, is there anything for non-Dylan fans in this film? While I'll admit, being a Dylan fan, and having knowledge of his life certainly did add something to the film, I think there's plenty to allow non-fans in. I'm Not There is very different to the likes of Walk The Line or Ray. It's certainly a more art-house film, and in no way a conventional biopic. But for someone as enigmatic as Dylan, it's the perfect way to take a look at his life.

 Not really there

As much as I admire Bob Dylan as an artist, and whatever the film crew had in mind with this film I was quite disappointed. First of all I don't think any film about Dylan should ever be made....Maybe when he's dead? This film doesn't really go anywhere. The narrative seems nonexistent, which could work but not in this case. It seems the collaborators on this film came up with a million ideas and stuck them together with no care or attention to telling a story. The false interviews are like something from a Christopher Guest film. The acting was good, but not amazing. The idea of the different Dylan's was very good, but they kept chopping and changing that there was no sense of continuity. I found this to be a pedestrian rendition of a story that had a whole lot to offer. I'm being harsh because the other reviews seem to suggest this film is flawless. It deserves 3 stars but no more in my opinion.
