This movie was so bad I thought I was going to die of torturous boredom in the theater. Seriously! I even gasped outloud at the 2 hour mark "It's not over yet!!??" I even considered killing myself to avoid seeing any more of the 2 hour plus torture - my son paid for the tickets so I stayed. The acting was marvelous, the script was interesting at moments, but the story was so bad and the visuals

This movie has two of the best performances I have ever seen, two very good performances, one good actor working with nothing, and one absurd miscast. Cate Blanchett deserves her Oscar nomination as Dylan in his mid-60's heyday and Marcus Carl Franklin was cheated out of one as the pre-fame Dylan. That kid was incredible. Richard Gere was surprisingly good as the Country-Rock Dylan of Nashville

The movie I am not there, was not there. By the end of the Movie my friend and I and one other couple were the only fourpeople left in the show. We waited and waited for something to show us this movie was worthwhile, it never happened. Who ever wrote this screen play had to be on something heavy.

I've been an avid Dylan fan since just before his first album "Bob Dylan" was released. Back then I saw him I Gerdie's and at the fountain in Washington Square Park, playing on a Sunday afternoon.

If you don't have one, forget it and don't waste your time. The film has Fellini references, lyrical references, and references of references. It busts down the door of what a film should be. There were trippy moments, beautiful moments, and some that confused me (I do *not* know everything about Dylan, but I was compelled to learn after watching I'm Not There). Job well done.

Among its many achievements, Todd Haynes's I'm Not There hurls a Molotov cocktail through the facade of the Hollywood biopic factory. Full Review

Washington Post
A fascinating experiment that, if the viewer is willing to surrender to Haynes's sometimes hermetic meditations on Dylan's life, heartily rewards the investment. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
A challenging film, one that I suspect can only benefit from multiple viewings. The success of its approaches varies, but its intent is unfailingly interesting. Full Review

It's not nearly as enjoyable as one of his rambling, meditative songs, though perhaps it is aspiring to be the cinematic equivalent. Give me "Tangled Up in Blue" any day over this incoherent, tangled trip. Full Review
Dana Stevens
Like the singer's gnomic comments to the press, the movie can be maddeningly slippery; like his music, it's fierce, thrilling, and unapologetically itself. Full Review
