Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Dylan Documentary Bob Dylan is probably the single greatest influence on popular music since the 60's. He championed folk and protest music then switched to rock and roll and broke both genre's free of the tin pan alley songsters. Dylan's songs were relevant, angry, poetic, inscrutable. Dylan pointed the way for so many artists: the Beatles, Springsteen, Tom Petty, the list is endless. And he penned more than 500 songs that define the largest body of popular songs of the era. No Direction Home tracks Dylan's early years and his early career up to the chock waves created by "Like a Rolling Stone" the first 6 minute rock song with meaningful lyrics. Most documentaries about Bob Dylan are third party products: Martin Scorcese has scored the big hit by having Dylan on video for "No Direction HOme." Like his work "Chronicles" this is not guess work - we are hearing Dylan tell us what it all meant and where it was at. In the end, this is not Bob Dylan. It is one man's vision of a major part of his career. However, it is intesting and compelling and provides the viewer with insight and perspective. PS - I hope other reviewers don't repeat the canard that "I like Dylan by not his singing" Dylan brought a voice that combines white folk and blues traditions with negro blues traditions. Listen to the emotion of his music - it will floor you. It's not Pavarotti or Perry Como. Have you ever though what they would sound like singing Highway 61, Senor or Things Have Changed? Just as silly as Dylan sounded when he tried to croon a few Elvis songs in the early 70's.
