As good as it gets in music documentaries.
Creates a portrait that is deep, sympathetic, perceptive and yet finally leaves Dylan shrouded in mystery, which is where he properly lives.
A document that will satiate Dylan fans over repeated viewings and should bring naysayers into the Dylan fold.
Framed by tons of rare footage, No Direction Home penetrates the soul of one of modern music's greatest icons - at least as much as Dylan will let us.
Anyone with more than a superficial interest in rock music and its possibilities should either see this film or own it.

One of the best music documentaries ever of one of the most unusual musicians ever...
Makes some cracks in Dylan's mystique without trying to do any more than letting his story come out as is.
To narrate selected details from this journey from the Iron Range to Greenwich Village to Rock Star Babylon, we get generous, attention-span respecting clips of Dylan performances and reminiscences from carefully selected talking heads.
No Direction Home ...becomes a portal back in time, a chance to relive some of...the most exciting years in the history of politics, personality and music.
Fans will be positively enthralled at the well-preserved nuggets, and neophytes will understand the fuss over the musician and the man.
