Haynes slices Dylan into six unequal pieces, and passes the roles out to six completely different performers. The two who steal the movie are in some ways a surprise.

Coming the same year as The Golden Age in which she played Elizabeth I, this proves Cate Blancheet's range and cements her reputation as the best of her generation.

Takes the genre in a different direction and features quality performances from Cate Blanchett, Christian Bale and Heath Ledger.

Captures Dylan's spirit - vibrantly, maddeningly and, above all, lovingly.

...not a biography by any conventional definition but an impressionistic survey of the artist, his art, his interaction (and at times collision) with the culture he both grabs onto and flees, and the mystery that still surrounds Dylan.

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

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.

Uma das cinebiografias mais atpicas e, por isto mesmo, mais fiis ao esprito criativo de seu biografado que j tive o prazer de assistir.

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

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.

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.
December 28, 2007
...a kind of filmic Dylan song, allusive and evocative and purposefully, poetically ambiguous.

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