Films in DaejeonI'm Not There [USA]

Six incarnations of Bob Dylan: an actor [Heath Ledger], a folk singer [Christian Bale], an electrified troubadour [Cate Blanchett], Rimbaud [Ben Whishaw] Billy the Kid [Richard Gere], and Woody Guthrie [Marcus Carl Franklin]. Put Dylan's music behind their adventures, soliloquies, interviews, marriage, and infidelity. Recreate 1960s documentaries in black and white. Put each at a crossroads, the artist becoming someone else. Jack, the son of Ramblin' Jack Elliott, finds Jesus; handsome Robbie falls in love then abandons Claire. Woody, a lad escaped from foster care, hobos the U.S. singing; Billy awakes in a valley threatened by a six-lane highway; Rimbaud talks. Jude, booed at Newport when he goes electric, fences with reporters, pundits, and fans. He won't be classified. Written by {}
