Ruminations on the life of Bob Dylan, where six characters embody a different aspect of the musician's life and work. In 1959 a guitar-strumming youth (Marcus Carl Franklin) rides the rails, calling himself 'Guthrie.' Then a man named Jack (Christian Bale) emerges in New York's Greenwich Village, followed by 'Robbie (Heath Ledger),' Jude (Cate Blanchett) and other personalities.
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.
Only devout Dylan fans will be able to derive much sense out of it. Dylan novices can only sit back and surrender to the ride Haynes offers: It's a strange, surreal trip.

...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 think it's really interesting stuff and I enjoyed every aspect of it.

There are those who will applaud what Haynes and his actors have accomplished, and I can understand its appeal on an intellectual level. But I am not a supporter of film without form or art without structure.
