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.

A competent but fawning, focusless and utterly overlong tribute to a terribly mediocre entertainer who 'sings' like a bumblebee barfing. Bloated Boomers, feel free to be interred with a copy. Soon.

Anyone with more than a superficial interest in rock music and its possibilities should either see this film or own it.

Robert Zimmerman achieved his dream of becoming a singer, but in doing so he surrendered the ability to define himself on his own terms.

Scorsese's superbly researched biography brings it all back home, confirming Dylan as the troubadour genius of sixties rock 'n' roll.

Scorsese assembles an impressive amount of footage and interviews -- many more candid that anyone could feasibly expect.

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.

Creates a portrait that is deep, sympathetic, perceptive and yet finally leaves Dylan shrouded in mystery, which is where he properly lives.

Fans will be positively enthralled at the well-preserved nuggets, and neophytes will understand the fuss over the musician and the man.

A document that will satiate Dylan fans over repeated viewings and should bring naysayers into the Dylan fold.
