I’m Not There is a new film directed by Todd Haynes and it’s being described as a movie about Bob Dylan which is both very accurate and a little bit misleading. Paints of approaches really meant to explode all of the conventions and cliches and expectations of movies that tell the life story of famous artists and musicians.

There is no character in this movie named Bob Dylan. Instead, there are 6 different characters played by different actors including Kate Blanchett, Richard Gere, Christian Bale, and Health Ledger who incarnate various aspects of Dylan’s art life and career. Here’s Jude Queen who is Ms Blanchett playing Bob Dylan more or less as he appeared in D.A. Pennebaker's great documentary “Don’t Look Back”.

And then there is Health Ledger playing a movie star who once played a character based on another character sort of like Bob Dylan, whose marriage to an artist played by Charlotte Gainsbourg is falling apart. Now what this all adds up to is not an interpretation of Bob Dylan’s life or an explanation of his place in American culture. But I think a celebration of his spirit and also an attempt to examine some of the interesting problems and insights relating to American culture, to celebrity, to pop music, and to the possibility of film-making that the career Bob Dylan raises.

But I can’ t say with any certainty about I’m Not There's how will appeal to those who have no interests whatsoever in Bob Dylan. I think that its visual techniques and its approach to story-telling and its kind of abstract playful spirit may bring a lot of new people in. But I don’t know since I‘ve grown up listening to Bob Dylan’s music and wondering what it meant. This movie really immersed me in someone else’s obsession with Todd Haynes.

And it’s such really an exhilarating experience. In the fact, you are watching one very smart, very tricky, very clever artist that’s Todd Haynes paying tribute to one who has no match when it comes to cleverness, trickiness, or mixture of intelligence.
Humor first, Joke later...
