i’m not there

The flirst clip from the unique and somewhat controversial Bob Dylan biopic has surfaced. If you are not familiar with this project, the movie is directed by Todd Haynes and centers around seven aspects of Dylan’s life all shot in a different manner. Below is a bit of info about those stories.

“Each story expresses an aspect of Dylan’s mercurial personality and each story is to be filmed differently, in a style appropriate to its theme: Woody (Franklin) – an 11-year-old black boy, always on the run; Robbie – a womanizing performer, always on the road; Jude (Blanchett) – the young androgynous rock star; John/Jack (Bale) – a folk idol who reinvents himself as an evangelist; Billy (Gere) – the famous outlaw, miraculously alive but growing old.”

People have been freaking out about a woman playing Dylan but the movie looks really interesting. Go to IMDB for more info and click below to see Dylan (played by that woman Cate Blanchett) meet Allan Ginsberg (played by funnyman David Cross) for the first time.
