Bob Dylan - No Direction Home - 2 DVD - Episode 1 & 2
BBC - Arena: Bob Dylan No Direction Home
Bob Dylan: No Direction Home Episode 1 of 2
A story told in flashbacks, Martin Scorsese's documentary intertwines the immediacy
of Bob Dylan's controversial 1966 tour of the British Isles with his remarkable personal
and musical journey. Drawing from hundreds of hours of unseen footage and rare recordings
in-depth interviews and revealing photographs, the film strikes a remarkable balance
telling the story of one man's journey and at the same time placing that story within the
greater canvas of human events.
This opening part traces his journey from a rock 'n' roll loving kid in the Midwest to his
arrival as a major force in the world of folk music. In his own words, Dylan tells viewers
how he became smitten with folk music as the story shifts scenes from the iron range in
Minnesota to Greenwich Village in New York City.
An amazing cast of characters includes Dave Van Ronk, the king of Greenwich village folk clubs
Joan Baez, queen of the folk music world and Allen Ginsburg, America's beat poet laureate. And
most importantly, the wide range of music that influenced the young Bob Dylan is explored.
As Dylan's fame and notoriety grows, his skill as a performer matures rapidly and the songs begin
to pour out - Blowing in the Wind, A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, Masters of War, Don't Think Twice
It's Alright and many more.
Part one ends with what seems to be the dawn of a new generation - Dylan, hands intertwined with
musician Pete Seeger, the Freedom Singers and Odetta singing Blowin' in the Wind at the closing
night of the Newport Folk Festival in 1963.
Bob Dylan: No Direction Home Episode 2 of 2
Martin Scorsese continues to explore the emotional, musical and intellectual journey of Bob Dylans
early career. The story turns dark. At 23, Dylan is already a newsworthy phenomenon and with that
success comes expectations - from the old left to become a political activist, and from the media
to articulate the concerns of America's youth. It's a role in which Dylan is completely uninterested
He is already on the move, finding a new musical vocabulary to capture the complexity of a seismic
cultural shift. He injects a heightened sense of poetry into his writing and adds electricity to his
music, electricity that now seems inevitable but at the time saw him labelled a sell-out and a traitor
Scorsese delicately balances Dylan's internal world with signpost images from the external world. Dylan's music is the backdrop as the war in Vietnam escalates and the nightly news brings home images people would never have dreamed of seeing on their television sets. Scorsese takes the time to let viewers really see the music unfold in revelatory concert performances.
By 1966 Dylan's personal world has become one of constant touring and press conferences. By the end of the film it is plainly obvious that for Dylan there are some journeys from which there is No Direction Home.
