“[Bob Dylan] created a new identity every step of the way in order to create identity.”—Anthony Scaduto, author of Bob Dylan (the line inspired the film)
A film inspired by the life of Bob Dylan, Todd Haynes’ stunning directorial achievement I’m Not There brings together six actors playing characters who craft a unique response to the elusive artist in different phases of his life, career, and persona. Cate Blanchett and Christian Bale (the literal Dylan), Richard Gere (Dylan and Billy the Kid), Heath Ledger (an actor haunted by the legacy of Dylan), Marcus Carl Franklin (Dylan in Woody Guthrie mode), and Ben Whishaw (Rimbaud as Dylan) are set in the political and cultural reality of the era, and filmed in the cinematic styles of the 1960s. Seven years in the making, I’m Not There is a true labor of love. Multiple award-winner at the 2007 Venice Film Festival. 2007, 35mm, 135 minutes.
