  • A loopy, surreal, beguiling collage of a film, the writer-director's meta-biopic embraces its subject. show more

  • The star of the show is undoubtedly Blanchett, who has great fun playing Dylan as a showboat who quite knowingly goes about creating his reputation for rebellious independence. show more

  • The strangest thing about Todd Haynes's new movie isn't that he cast six actors to play the various faces and phases of Bob Dylan. It's that he needed only six. show more
