The life and music of Bob Dylan
are dramatized as a series of shifting personae, each performed by a different actor—poet, prophet, outlaw, fake, star of electricity, rock and roll, martyr born-again Christian—seven identities braided together, seven organs pumping through one life story, as dense and vibrant as the era it inspired.
Arthur (Ben Wishaw), a renegade symbolist poet, serves as the film's narrator, while being interrogated by a nameless commission as to the motivations, subversive undercurrents, and political misreadings of his work. His witty, ironic responses provide counterpoint to the chapters of a life that begin to unfurl.
Cate Blanchett was amazing. Otherwise, The Hottie and the Nottie was a far superior movie than this waste of a cheap tuesday ticket!
Cate Blanchett was the only decent thing is this movie. A 'B' class art film that has excellent actors with a horrible script. I wouldn't suggest renting it on cheep night.
