Managed to catch Todd Haynes' film 'I'm not there' about the life of Bob Dylan and although ambitious and good in parts it doesn't quite come off.
Showing his multi-faceted character through the voice of six different actors was always going to be difficult but it was only a brilliant performance by Cate Blanchett, with her delicate build and perfect skin, as the twitchy, haunted Dylan of the late sixties that really came off. Was this because she was allowed to look and represent the poet as he was and is most famous for, whereas the other actors had to portray aspects of his character less well known. I think so.
Don't get me wrong, it's a must see and I applaud the courage of the director, it's just sometimes I said to myself "I'm not there".
And the lyrics..... the man is a genius!!
