Dylan does about a dozen songs with his tight juke-joint band, and it's worth sitting through the rest of the nonsense for both the music and for Jeff Bridges, in Fisher King mode as Dylan's nemesis.
December 30, 2006
Only the scenes of Dylan on stage really hold the attention.
November 9, 2003
A strong contender for the worst movie of the century.
October 3, 2003
Far from the greatest story ever told.
October 3, 2003
Absolutely no saving graces here.
September 26, 2003
A fascinating mess.
September 5, 2003
The stellar but misguided cast ... is simply painful to watch as the doomed vehicle it's trapped in comes whistling toward a fiery crash landing.
September 5, 2003
A fascinating, vexing, indulgent, visionary, pretentious, mesmerizing pop culture curio.
September 4, 2003
The music is great. Dylan and his band do a half-dozen songs that crackle with energy.
August 29, 2003
This tarted-up mishmash of loopy ideology and pining for the old days makes you happy the 1960s are over.
August 27, 2003
Movies are much too representational and finite to accommodate the Mbius strips of Dylan's language.
August 15, 2003
A vanity production beyond all reason.
August 15, 2003
There's a cracked integrity to the picture that eventually won me over.

If Seinfeld is the late sitcom about nothing, M&A is the feature about something. It's just that some of us out here in the hinterland can't figure out what it is.
August 15, 2003
Would have been much better if the makers had included more music, shot their actors with Ingmar Bergman close-up minimalism and made something looser, simpler and wilder.
August 8, 2003
Dylan seems content to just recycle his old ideas.
August 8, 2003
The results are heavy-handed and oppressive in the way that vanity projects and bloated collective theatre experiments often are.
August 8, 2003
The movie qualifies as a catastrophic mess, a chaotic celebration of Dylan's mysterious image as singer, artist and (judging by this movie) near-catatonic.
August 1, 2003
Void of inflection, Dylan doesn't act, but stands and looks uneasy in whatever space the camera is pointing. The deadness in his eyes stops the movie cold.
August 1, 2003
The film is a train wreck, and an overbearing train wreck at that.
