No Direction Home

Posted by martinteller on March 24, 2006

Martin Scorsese does a superb job piecing together Dylan’s early career, culminating in the legendary 1966 Royal Albert Hall concert.  Throughout, Dylan establishes himself as his own individual, steadfastly (and admirably) refusing to be pegged down and pigeonholed.  I’m a Dylan fan, but not a huge one, so most of this footage was new to me, and it’s all excellent.  Scorsese unearthed a lot of great stuff to help put Dylan into context.  A really compelling work that trucks along nicely despite its length… though I imagine it would be of little interest to non-fans.  Rating: 9
