Brilliant! Well done! So true!

Well, I disagree with your overall opinion of the movie, but I do love your presentation. Definitely an A for effort and topicality there.

Thanks dudes!

I will say that I found Charlotte Gainsbourg extremely attractive... in a weird way. She's kind of weird looking sometimes, but enchanting always.

Clever presentation, indeed!

I still need to buy the DVD, and I regret not seeing the film again in the theatre, because the first viewing had me in a trance. In a good way.

Tom, since you are the #1 Dylan guy I know, I'd be really curious to hear your full thoughts on the movie. Maybe you will do a post after buying the DVD??? Yes??? :)

Also... after watching the movie - and then heading to my RS album guide to read Rob Sheffield's entry on Dylan - I was curious what you thought about the period between Hard Rain and Oh, Mercy, a period that Sheffield mostly treats with disdain (kinda like the way he treated pre-The Queen Is Dead Smiths in the SPIN album guide. I know two rabids in Dallas that will probably never forgive him for that.... 2 out of 10 for Meat Is Murder!?!?).

Years after the fact, I've nothing more clever to say than...this is quite clever, and very funny.

I didn't care for I'm Not There so much either, though I thought David Cross was hilarious. Wait, was he supposed to be hilarious?
