Todd Haynes dives deep into Dylan with I'm Not There

Thankfully not represented are Dylan's less-interesting years — the Victoria's Secret pitchman era, for example.

As a rock doc–slash–biopic, I'm Not There is proof that the best rendering of a legend isn't necessarily done with straight, tidy lines. I may not have been a huge Dylan fan before I'm Not There, but I was a Haynes fan. With this, his most ambitious work to date, the director's affection for re-creating the past finds its match in his innovative dissection of a complex artist's soul. *
