I'm Not There is a very special kind of life and times. It leaves ordinary musical biopics like Ray and Walk the Line and Beyond the Sea in the dust.

Haynes' film has no straight lines, it is all collage and pastiche and an endless series of intersections that all, quite improbably, lead to a startlingly accurate (if abstracted) vision of the many faces of Dylan.

I'm Not There is coy and fatuous, but it also can be intriguing and thought-provoking. But I'm Not There makes us consider Dylan with new eyes.

Full of Dylanology, Dylanography and Dylanerbole... if that's your thing

Prairie Miller

The director's disappointment in Dylan's downward metamorphosis from outlaw poet, prophet and political idealist to cynic, egotist, wasted stoner, Jesus freak and recluse, is palpable, with a symbolic dirge for a body that has outlived its art.

Haynes is brilliant at tearing off the top of his own head and giving audiences a peek into his pop obsessions.

Cinema em Cena

Uma das cinebiografias mais atípicas e, por isto mesmo, mais fiéis ao espírito criativo de seu biografado que já tive o prazer de assistir.

Perhaps the whole weird, scattershot thing might play better when you can skip-search to your favorite bits.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The iconoclastic film about the idiosyncratic artist is truly an inventive film but not an easy one to come to grips with or instantly enjoy.

Eric Melin

By mirroring Dylan's concepts with his music and avoiding both the biographical route and the songs-tell-a-story route, Haynes creates the most provocative, electric examination of an artist in years.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...a kind of filmic Dylan song, allusive and evocative and purposefully, poetically ambiguous.

Sydney Morning Herald

It's brilliant, demanding, exasperating; it's undramatic but absorbing, more enigmatic than revealing, up itself and wildly inventive.

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

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

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.
