winning a time-machine lottery and getting whisked back to the '70s
to spend a day with Bob Dylan and his friends. Frankly, there's no need
to imagine. This movie is such a time machine. Here is an astonishing
pop culture visualization, when the Beat Generation was eclipsed by
the emerging Post-Modern Movement. And you have a front-row seat, with
Bob Dylan as your guide.
Obviously, "Renaldo & Clara"
is a different sort of film, Bob Dylan's rambling uncomfortably personal
- running nearly 4 hours - covering everything from his true-life love
triangle (between himself, Sara Dylan and Joan Baez) to the blooming
counterculture, punctuated by his hard-driving concert tour, The
Rolling Thunder Revue. The movie is filled with great music
and very interesting people. While most of the dialogue appears to be
impromptu, writing credits go to Dylan and distinguished playwright/screenwriter.
The director is Bob Dylan. It is his film and his vision. The assistant
director is Jacques Levy [the man who produced/directed OH!
CALCUTTA! on Broadway. Levy would also become Dylan's writing
partner for most of the songs on the 1978 Desire album.
This time-capsule-of-a-movie is both a massive
concert-tour film and an invitation into the personal sphere of rock-legend
Bob Dylan's life.
