I'M NOT THER E


The Weinstein Company

Directed by Todd Haynes

Released in the U.S. and Canada on November 21, 2007

Summary written by Omar P.L. Moore

Todd Haynes has a visual style that is distinct and hypnotic and he enthuses it into the multiple personages of Bob Dylan, manifested in six people, in "I'm Not There", a very impressive collage of stages of the legendary folk-activist-poet's life and career.  The editing and cinematography are scintillating, but it is also the acting skills of Cate Blanchett in particular as Jude Quinn, that are to be marveled at.  Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Marcus Carl Franklin and Ben Whishaw are also great as they convey the personas of Dylan.  "I'm Not There" is refreshing and wonderfully ambitious, and Mr. Haynes directs it in such a way that you are always transfixed.  Never a dull moment here, there, or anywhere in 2007, where "I'm Not There" -- appropriately flavored with Mr. Dylan's music -- is concerned.

Significant line of the film: "Sleep?  Sleep is for dreamers, man!"  (Spoken by Jude Quinn.)

Film's length: Two hours and 15 minutes
