Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese
Capturing the troubled spirit of '70s America and the joyous music that Dylan and friends performed on tour, Scorsese's film looks back on those heady days. Revealing documentary footage blends with contemporary interviews (including with a mysterious filmmaker claiming the original footage as his). At the height of his fame and influence, Dylan created a travelling troupe of some of the key artists of the time – Joni Mitchell, Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Mick Ronson, Emmylou Harris and Allen Ginsberg to list just a few – to play small, atmospheric venues. The genius onstage was matched by behind-the-scenes drama and offstage political activism, and Scorsese brings these fertile elements together into a glorious musical adventure.
