I'm afraid Scorsese's going to be too reverent to really be interesting. Baby Boomers have trouble getting critical perspective on Dylan. But if it just has lots of cool archival footage, that'll be reason enough to see it.

American Masters (2005 Season) - "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan - A Martin Scorsese Picture"

MARTIN SCORSESE DIRECTING FIRST FEATURE-LENGTH FILM BIOGRAPHY OF BOB DYLAN TO PREMIERE THIS SEPTEMBER

DOCUMENTARY PORTRAIT WILL AIR ON PBS'S AMERICAN MASTERS SERIES SEPTEMBER 26-27

PARAMOUNT HOME ENTERTAINMENT TO RELEASE DVD WITH EXTENSIVE BONUS FEATURES ONE WEEK PRIOR TO BROADCAST

Bob Dylan Fully Participates And Opens Archives For The Film, Which Features Previously Unreleased Footage From Dylan's Groundbreaking Live Concerts, Studio Recording Sessions, Outtakes, And Interviews

In an event that has brought together Bob Dylan and Martin Scorsese, two of America's most influential and revered cultural innovators, NO DIRECTION HOME: BOB DYLAN - A MARTIN SCORSESE PICTURE, a co-production of Spitfire Pictures, Greywater Park, Thirteen/WNET New York, the BBC's Arena series, and Martin Scorsese's Sikelia Productions, in association with Vulcan Productions, will make its broadcast premiere on PBS's award-winning AMERICAN MASTERS series Monday and Tuesday, September 26-27 at 9 p.m. (ET) on PBS (check local listings). The series is a production of Thirteen/WNET New York. Paramount Home Entertainment will also release a DVD version of the documentary with extensive additional never-before-seen footage.

The two-part film, which focuses on the singer-songwriter's life and music from 1961-66, includes never-seen performance footage and interviews with artists and musicians whose lives intertwined with Dylan's during that time. For the first time on camera, Dylan talks openly and extensively about this critical period in his career detailing the journey from his birthplace in Hibbing, Minnesota, to Greenwich Village, New York, where he became the center of a musical and cultural upheaval whose effects are still felt today.

For the first time, The Bob Dylan Archives has made available rare treasures from its film, tape and stills collection, including footage from the 1963, 1964 and 1965 Newport Folk Festivals, previously unreleased outtakes from D.A. Pennebaker's famed 1967 documentary Don't Look Back, and interviews with Allen Ginsberg, Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, Maria Muldauer, and many others. In anticipation of the film, members of Dylan's worldwide community of fans also contributed rarities from their own collections.

NO DIRECTION HOME: BOB DYLAN - A MARTIN SCORSESE PICTURE comes on the heels of Dylan's best-selling memoir, Chronicles: Volume I, which spent months on The New York Times Top 10 non-fiction books list.

In addition to being the director of such highly acclaimed dramatic films as Raging Bull, Goodfellas and The Aviator, Scorsese is an avid chronicler of the history of American popular music. Most recently, he executive-produced the critically hailed music miniseries The Blues, which aired on PBS, as well as the related concert film Lightning in a Bottle, directed by Antoine Fuqua. Scorsese directed the seminal documentary The Last Waltz (1978), which captured the legendary farewell concert of The Band, and he served as an assistant director and editor on Woodstock (1970).

In discussing his excitement about the current project, Scorsese remarked, "I had been a great fan for many years when I had the privilege to film Bob Dylan for The Last Waltz. I've admired and enjoyed his many musical transformations. For me, there is no other musical artist who weaves his influences so densely to create something so personal and unique. This project gives me a chance to explore one of the most exciting artists and icons of the past 50 years."

Along with Scorsese, NO DIRECTION HOME: BOB DYLAN - A MARTIN SCORSESE PICTURE is being individually produced by Jeff Rosen of Greywater Park, Nigel Sinclair of Spitfire, Anthony Wall of the BBC's Arena series, and Susan Lacy of Thirteen/WNET New York's AMERICAN MASTERS series, which has won the Emmy for Outstanding Primetime Non-Fiction Series five of the last six years.

"At a time when Dylan is exciting an entirely new fan base, he's speaking frankly about one of the most extraordinary periods in an extraordinary life," said Lacy, series creator and executive producer of AMERICAN MASTERS. "We're honored to be part of this story."

Added Spitfire's Sinclair: "Bob Dylan is a true cultural worldwide icon. This is the first time Bob has given this unprecedented access, which, coupled with Marty's outstanding filmmaking talents, should provide an unparalleled portrait of Dylan's indelible mark on the culture of the 20th century."

"This is history," said Wall, Arena series editor. "As Dylan's extraordinary career is building to another great peak, it's also a milestone for the BBC and PBS."

The film's soundtrack contains two CDs that capture the excitement of the music heard in the film. Comprised of all unreleased material, the CD set stands on its own as a vivid and sweeping collection of Bob Dylan performances from the early 1960s.

It's probably (ironically) considered sacrilege to say so, but I really prefer Dylan through about '65 to all the long-winded "poetical" later stuff. The Bootleg Series vol. 1 & 2 rank high in my faves. So that soundtrack sounds great. . .


Do love 'New Morning,' though.

That living room tape from '60 at the Minnesota Historical Society really is awesome.

I still wish Scorsese had done a documentary about the Clash instead of the Band. That blues concert doc he executive produced was not good.

Hurting (Hurting), Wednesday, 29 June 2005 03:46 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

dude wait until the movie comes out before you get all offended. haynes' casting choice seems likely as much to do with haynes' cracked-out brilliance as with any "aura" around dylan, just like all the hallucinatory weirdness and convoluted plot of "velvet goldmine" was as much about haynes' vision as bowie or iggy pop.

that said there is a very good reason for the "aura" around dylan - he's fucking good.

We also have time to note the bits of documentary fakery that Scorsese has prankishly embedded in the movie: interviews with the film’s “original” director, and with Jack Tanner (Michael Murphy) from Robert Altman’s 1988 HBO series, not to mention a made-up subplot about Sharon Stone joining the tour as a teenage fan.


The fuck?

Theodor Adorno, perhaps the greatest philosopher alive today (morrisp), Tuesday, 11 June 2019 03:46 (one week ago) Permalink

The film does not quite wish to tell you what it was like in any obvious way. There is something weird and mischievous going on. The concert footage and backstage scenes appear to be drawn from the same trove of archive material that formed the basis of Bob Dylan’s lengthy and ill-fated 1978 film about the tour, Renaldo and Clara, which he co-wrote with the late Sam Shepard – who is interviewed here. Like that film, the Rolling Thunder Revue does have some personae who may not be, strictly speaking, factual. The footage is attributed to a certain dyspeptic film-maker who is actually the performance artist and comedian Martin Von Haselberg, husband of Bette Midler. A certain politician is interviewed and you may think: “Wait, that guy looks like the actor Michael Murphy.” It is the actor Michael Murphy. Could it be that this is all a modern commedia dell’arte in which, with Scorsese’s discreet assistance, Dylan is retreating behind masks, masks that might allow him to tell a higher truth?

Possibly. Scorsese drops further hints with clips from films concerned in various ways with theatrical performance: Georges Méliès’s The Vanishing Lady (1893), Marcel Carné’s Children of Paradise (1945) and Tony Gatlif’s Latcho Drom (1993). Sometimes the creative semi-remembering is a bit opaque, and there were times when I could have done with some more straightforward documentary realism. But it’s churlish to complain when this is all so gripping, both as a time capsule and as a showcase for Dylan’s unique presence and glorious performances from Baez, Mitchell and also from Patti Smith who was not actually a member of the Rolling Thunder tour but is shown performing before it got started.

In this docu I think he now says he got the whiteface from Kiss. Enfants du Paradis does contain the lines of dialogue "You go your way and I'll go mine" and "Love is so simple"...to coin a phrase.

A few years ago I attended a screening of the only known complete print of Ranaldo and Clara in the UK - looking very pink in places, but perfectly watchable - and the guy who introduced it made the good point that R&C is the single project that Dylan has spent the most time on (it was a long time in the 'editing suite').

As a non-fan I thought the film was enlightening and the old footage fantastic. The "F For Fake"-y stuff pretty inessential, honestly. Joni Mitchell stole the show as far as I'm concerned.

Question for those who've seen it from a Dylan agnostic: I'm interested to see this, but I've always found the "Dylan as ultimate trickster/liar" narrative to be really tedious. How annoying is the fakey stuff in this? I wanna see this famous band shred through a bunch of great Dylan songs, but I'm not trying to see a lot of Sharon Stone doing improv or whatever is going on there.

Dylan has the best bullshit detector of anyone on screen, and it's fun watching him endure the post-hippie twaddle that he himself endorsed because the revue was, after all, his idea.

In Renaldo and Clara there's a scene where Mick Ronson won't let Ronnie Hawkins backstage. Hawkins says something like, "I don't care nothing about England or David Bouuuie or his lead guitar picker."

This was fantastic. Joni's performance of "Coyote" steals the film imo. Michael Murphy and Sharon Stone sequences egregiously unnecessary, Von Dorp stuff works better (possibly because the dude playing the role is more of an unknown). Patti Smith's performance is embarrassing, Joan Baez's onstage gyrations with McGuinn are hilariously awful. Dylan and the band get in a bunch of incredible performances, my favorite being the piano-led version of "Simple Twist of Fate" (which is sadly cut short, but followed by an awesome solo Dylan version). Dylan's interview responses are all gold.

Οὖτις, Thursday, 13 June 2019 16:01 (one week ago) Permalink

I think some people are annoyed because, weirdly and despite him always seemingly actively working against it, for a lot of people Dylan is seen as Mr Auteur Genius Singer Songwriter - Mr Authentic who is writing true things about truth - the guy who influenced a million boys to badly busk Blowing In the Wind to make them seem poetic. and thats obviously in direct contrast to fake pop posers - who couldn't possibly express truth. that notion of authenticity was totally alien to music fans before the 50s - nobody gave a fuck who wrote a song or whether it really reflected that persons "truth" - the PR / self-creation of "Dylan" was totally a spearhead for the creation of that aura - and I enjoy the fact that he's always recognised it and questioned it. I forget which book i read on this but it tied that trend to the transition from disposable 7" singles to the (more profitable) album "as artistic statement".... I guess Its important for journalists/think piece writers to play into that narrative because it brings validity to writing about pop songs and can let some of them feel better about making a living doing clickbait top 10s and recaps. If a guy like Dylan suddenly says "lol fuck that this is all a bunch of lies" its no wonder some of them get pissed off.

He kind of went for something similar during his wandering the wilderness years, right? When he was touring with the Dead and later Tom Petty? Kind of hitching his wagon to someone else's scene, taking the pressure off for a while (fittingly, when he was probably least deserving of attention, too).
