This is London

A crazy film which shouldn't work, but for most of the time does.

Independent

Not a lot of fun.

Financial Times

This works so well that long before the end you don't merely accept the use of these wildly diverse personae, but you may also even wonder whether Dylan's story could properly be told any other way

There are also some great performances from Heath Ledger, Christian Bale and, particularly, Blanchett. But director Todd Haynes works under the misapprehension that everyone who sees this film will have a detailed knowledge of Dylan.

Daily Mirror [UK]

This drama, a surreal, fractured examination of the mercurial singer-songwriter comes closer to revealing the man behind the music than anything that's come before, but still preserves his essential mystery.

Total Film

A fascinating work for cinema and Bob Dylan fans alike. Haynes has painted a perfect picture tribute to the musical icon that only misses a beat in the final quarter. One actor simply couldn't do the man justice.

It's not your average biopic but it's unforgettable all the same.

Sukhdev Sandhu
Daily Telegraph

Haynes, astutely perhaps, has created a biopic with little time for "justice" or indeed any of the reverence and piety of recent films such as Walk the Line or Ray.

Peter Bradshaw
Guardian

A powerfully reverent exercise in remystification, an attempt to waft some of the clouds of glory back around the great man, clouds that might have dispersed in recent years.

Times [UK]

One of the sexiest pieces of cinema I've seen at a festival.

December 21, 2007

A multifaceted diamond of a film. Todd Haynes joyously freewheels through the times of Bob Dylan.

You'll have your work cut out keeping track of Haynes' dotty intentions, but there remains something compelling in his mercurial art.

Andy Klein
Los Angeles CityBeat

Of course, the big question is whether all this tricky stuff adds up to anything or is simply narrative razzle-dazzle.

December 21, 2007
Phil Villarreal
Arizona Daily Star

Exactly as weird, deep, nonsensical, rambling and wheezy as Dylan's music. Haynes could have cut his movie in half, then reordered the scenes at random, and what he'd have would be no less cohesive than the product as it stands.

December 20, 2007

Empire Magazine

An extraordinary attempt to encapsulate the many faces of Bob Dylan that plays better to the convert than the sceptic. Like the nasal twang of the man in question, the film finally beguiles more than it irritates.

Manhattan Movie Magazine

an intricate exercise in synthetic cubism

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Todd Haynes' masterful portrait of Bob Dylan scrutinizes the musician-poet-actor-artist-husband-father-outlaw and leaves him at once as mysterious as ever and yet somehow knowable.

Common Sense Media

Well-acted, mature Dylan biopic for big fans only.

Ken Hanke
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

You may know little more about Dylan than when you walked into the theater, but you'll have some interesting food for thought as concerns Todd Haynes' imaginings about Dylan.

Full Review Source: Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) | Original Score: 4.5/5

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

The movie is not so much a biography as a fragmented tour through Dylan's various personas and psyches.
