Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream, this film captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Dylan performed during the fall of that year.
"‘Life isn’t about finding yourself or finding anything,” says Bob Dylan. “It’s about creating yourself."
"Alongside his career as cinema’s best chronicler of New York underlife, Martin Scorsese has a nifty side hustle as a master Dylanologist. A spiritual sequel to 2005’s No Direction Home, which charted Bob Dylan’s golden years between 1961 and ’66, Rolling Thunder Revue follows the ramshackle 1975-’76 tour featuring music’s biggest stars playing shows in smaller auditoriums in less fashionable cities."
"Step right up, ladies and gentlemen and cine-revelers of every type, to the mesmerizing motion picture and humbly titled extravaganza, “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese.” Thrill to Dylan, a troubadour with a white-smeared face and a peacock feather in his wide-brimmed hat, as he electrifies and sometimes confuses audiences with his melodious musings."
