I'M NOT THERE

Todd Haynes
USA 2007
135min
V'07

Bob Dylan - icon, musical genius, poet, voice of a generation - is the subject of a second major film in two years. Whereas Martin Scorsese's No Direction Home was a conventional - albeit monumental - documentary, Todd Haynes's remarkable revisiting of Dylan's career is a fictional re-imagining of the great troubadour's life. This dazzling and dizzying traversal of one of the most elusive and gifted songwriters of a generation follows Dylan's path from callow youth to superstar extraordinaire. Never comfortable playing one role in his life, Dylan assumed multiple personalities. Haynes fully understands the chameleon-like nature of his subject, and has made a lyrical, poetic, highly stylized portrait of a man determined to possess his own identity and not let anyone - media, public, industry - control that image.
