Critic Review - San Francisco Examiner

Abstract expressionism, paying tribute to its hero in a fashion every bit as enigmatic and chameleon-like as the man himself. Is it a faux-documentary? Is it a biographical drama? At times, it is both. In the end, we are left with an ambitious misfire.

try a metaphorical documentary. if you knew dylan, you'd understand. although the movie was rather crummy.

I own just about every single album the man has made, a collection of 100-plus bootlegs, two documentaries, three biographies and a book of his complete lyrics. But you're right, if I knew Dylan like you do, I'm sure I'd understand. Incidentally, "faux-documentary" (a general term relatively open to interpretation) and "metaphorical documentary" could be taken as the same thing, smart guy.

Well aren't we smart, Mr. Drake, with all our big words?
