The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk FestivalDirected byMurray Lerner
Lerner lets the music speak for itself without commentaries or interviews sharing the rich footage he captured at Newport in '63, '64 and '65. The evolution of Dylan from fresh faced genius to folk poster boy to icon to fallen idol (for going electric) is captured fully. For the hard core Dylan fan this is a wonderful companion to Scorsese's documentary 'No Direction Home'.
