EIFF Review: No Direction Home: Bob Dylan

Filed under: Reviews

Martin Scorsese culled 60 hours of footage to thread a narrative line along this documentary about music pioneer Bob Dylan. Although a full review isn't possible (technical difficulties meant about an hour was left out of the screening), what was seen was quality documentarianism " Dylan in rare candid interviews talking about his influences, inspirations, and his work. Normally quite guarded with the media, Dylan chatted intimately a few years ago and that discussion in large part plays the spine to what could have otherwise been a formless documentary.

Martin Scorsese pieced together the arc of an artist against the backdrop of a social and societal revolution. He could win the Oscar for his work here. And what's funny is that Robert De Niro isn't in this one.
