Bob Dylan – “One Too Many Mornings” from Bootleg Series Vol. 4: The Royal Albert Hall Concert 1966 (1998)
For those of you following SWR’s movie-watching habits, I did not watch No Country For Old Men, as previously predicted. Instead, I saw I’m Not There, which SWReaders have no doubt heard of. I thought it was a great recontextualization of the classic story of success/arrogance/fall/redemption. Certain of my compatriots thought it too laden with music snob details, and it was interesting to hear how my friends who aren’t familiar with the various Dylan myths interpreted the film.
Talking point: I’m Not There is NOT a contest to see who can ‘do’ the best Bob Dylan. None of the actors are particularly good at Dylan, and everyone seems like an actor. No one disappears into a role, but that’s not especially the point.
