I haven't seen the new Batman film yet, but I promise you a review as soon as I happen upon a theater. It's all I've been hearing about lately, but I suppose that by the time I get around to reviewing it, y'all will have seen it already. In lieu of that, I've got a different movie about which I need to talk: I'm Not There. Christian Bale & Heath Ledger play different versions of Dylan... Bale as Dylan around 64'/early '65 & Ledger as Dylan as a 1970s movie star. Along w/ these 2, there is also Richard Gere as Dylan as Billy the Kid in the Old West, Kate Blanchet as Dylan circa late '65/66 during the famous tour of England & Blonde on Blonde, Marcus Carl Franklin as an 11 year old African American Dylan in 1959 named Woody Guthrie, among others. Oddly, David Cross played Allen Ginsberg & did a fantastic job. The real work was done by Todd Haynes who wrote & directed it. It follows the many incarnations of Bob Dylan as he re-envisioned himself over the course of 20 years revolving around the line between public & private personas & the line between the historical & the fictive reality that he created for himself. (not to mention the worlds created in his lyrics from this time period.) The non-linear structure, combined w/ the surrealistic imagery captures Dylan in an amazing way (like a version of Renaldo & Clara that actually works [I do kinda dig Renaldo & Clara too though]). I hope no one ever tries to make a Doors/Buddy Holly Story/Walk the Line/La Bamba/Great Balls of Fire/Ray bio-pic type movie about him because this one is so much more interesting than straight ahead linear "look @ me, I'm famous" movie would ever be. Then, before the closing credits, there is footage of Dylan circa '75, but it's just a close-up of his face as he plays a ridiculously atonal harmonica solo. After 2 hours & 20 minutes of a story based on a life made famous due primarily to his use of language, when he finally appears, he says nothing... awesome!
