December 28, 2007
...a kind of filmic Dylan song, allusive and evocative and purposefully, poetically ambiguous.
Full Review | Original Score: 93/100
December 26, 2007
It's brilliant, demanding, exasperating; it's undramatic but absorbing, more enigmatic than revealing, up itself and wildly inventive.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

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

Not a lot of fun.

December 21, 2007
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
December 21, 2007
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.

December 21, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 21, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 21, 2007
It's not your average biopic but it's unforgettable all the same.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 21, 2007
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.
December 21, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 21, 2007
One of the sexiest pieces of cinema I've seen at a festival.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 21, 2007
A multifaceted diamond of a film. Todd Haynes joyously freewheels through the times of Bob Dylan.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 21, 2007
You'll have your work cut out keeping track of Haynes' dotty intentions, but there remains something compelling in his mercurial art.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 21, 2007
Of course, the big question is whether all this tricky stuff adds up to anything or is simply narrative razzle-dazzle.
December 20, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
December 20, 2007
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

an intricate exercise in synthetic cubism

December 17, 2007
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.

December 13, 2007
Well-acted, mature Dylan biopic for big fans only.
