In 1965, filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker accompanied Bob Dylan to England to make a film about the singer/songwriter's British tour. At the time, no one could have known how fortuitous Pennebaker's timing would prove to be. Within a few months of this tour, Dylan would forsake his role as The Conscience of Folk Music to pick up a Fender Stratocaster and play rock and roll. Within a year, Dylan would suffer a motorcycle accident that would put him out of commission for nearly 18 months. Recording

D.A. Pennebaker's 1967 record of Bob Dylan's 1965 English tour is a genuine blast from the past, evoking the 60s like few other documents.
An unforgettable all-access pass behind the scenes of Bob Dylan's '65 British tour, D.A. Pennebaker's landmark 1967 rock doc all but invented the form while presaging the music video.
Whether one is a member of the under-30 set that regards Mr. Dylan as a spokesman, or one of the vanishing Americans over that age, this look into the life of a folk hero is likely to be both entertaining and occasionally disturbing.
D.A. Pennebaker's 1967 film, which invented the rock documentary, is a time capsule from the period when Sgt. Pepper was steamrolling Mr. Tambourine Man.
It's unlikely that Don't Look Back will ever look better than it does on Docurama's Blu-ray release, making this two-disc package an essential purchase for rock-doc aficionados.
Unencumbered by voiceover or any sort of forced narrative, the result is an intimate and riveting look at Dylan unfiltered, a portrait of the artist as a 24-year-old superstar.
Dylan courses through like loose mercury, a capricious nightmare, inscrutable jester, brilliant artist
The film's greatest incidental pleasures are images of a time when outlaw musicians wore suit jackets and the craggy Dylan was a delicate, unconventionally handsome young man.
Essential raw Dylan.
Great stuff for Dylan fans or anyone interested in a street level look at a pop culture icon.
