I'm veering off the subject a bit but certainly not from the subject of Dylan. Just thought some might be interested in this:

A friend who is a member of a very small (six people) on-line music discussion group I am in started an email about this film. I have not seen it yet but want to eventually. Here is my response to the group:

'I haven't watched any of it quite yet but I want to. Interesting note on the "whiteface" that Dylan wore during this tour:

I still have on VHS a 60 Minutes interview from 2004, Morley Safer was the host. Safer said that Dylan put on the make-up as a faux disguise, he was so completely shattered by all the fame and adoration.

That interview if you ever get a chance to see it (youtube maybe?) is really special. I never imagined how completely his fame messed up his life. Safer, "Do you like to eat in restaurants?" "I don't like restaurants"............with a LOT of resignation........."It's ALWAYS going to happen", meaning having his dinner interrupted.

"No one believes it's you." Bob said that someone will come up and say, "Hey! You're him!" Dylan: "OK". Fan: "NOOOO.......you're not really him!" Then they'll switch back the other way. "This can go on indefinitely" Dylan said.

Or how about in the late 60's. Dylan moved out of New York City to upstate New York with his wife Sarah and three kids to try and escape it. THEY COULDN'T. "They would be climbing up on the roof, looking in windows. Wanted to talk to me about politics, organic farming, etc, etc." Safer: "You know anything about organic farming?" "Absolutely nothing" said Bob.

It had DIRE consequences for his marriage, in fact it caused them to split. "That wasn't the kind of life she had imagined for herself. Nor did I."

Wow is all I can say. What a pity.'

I watched it last night. In no ways am a "huge" Dylan fan and but do like the classic releases he has had over the years. I found the documentary a bit all over the place. Probably similar to the tour.

The part of the movie where they are in Gordon Lightfoot's house in Taranaha was funny. Gordie looks lost looking for a light for his cigarette. They never talk to him just zoom in on Joni working on Coyote.

The grumpy film maker was good especially when describing the rolling stones writer.

Poets getting cut from rotation was good to. I would have made that call early on based on the dribble he was spewing for the ladies auxiliary.

Not sure I would watch it again but a great time capsule of an era in R&R and of course Dylan.
