Dont Look Back

D.A. Pennebaker Stati Uniti, 1967

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Don't Look Back

Dylan insisted this wasn't the whole story, and he's right—for that, see No Direction Home. But it's one of the great rock movies just by dropping the camera into a media frenzy, where a brilliant (and thus arrogant) 24 year old songwriter could be turned into a prophet, cash cow, tabloid celebrity, and detached rock star brat. All the contradictions are on display of an era where such faith was placed in pop music.
