Critic Reviews for Dont Look Back
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.
Audience Reviews for Dont Look Back
Amazing . . . My dear niece, who first invited me to join flixster actually, was working the bar at a London venue where Bob Dylan was playing. At some point she was sent backstage to deliver Dylan a beer. Like me, my niece is a big fan of his; we still are. Her report: He was not very pleasant. I'm sure Dylan is not the only celebrity who may not come off well from time to time in public interaction. I know I'd never want to have a beer with Dylan, but I won't let his personality quirks color the power of his music for me. My niece and I do remain big fans. Note to self: You will never be famous. How do I know this? No one ever follows me around like this in my day-to-day routine with a camera.
A must for any Dylan fan from his best era.
I like the synopsis at the top of the page. It isn't a great film but there is great stuff here. Like watching a movie of your parents at a younger age, we get a since of what the prime Dylan was like and the historical first attempt at the music video.
