The Dylan Concept

Stephanie Zacharek reviews I’m Not There:

“I’m Not There” is Todd Haynes’ version of the question, framed not as a demand but as a ballad sung in the language of movies, as if the only way to get to the meaning of Dylan were through another type of song. This Dylan — this idea of Dylan — is, as the movie’s opening tells us, “Poet, prophet, outlaw, fake, star of electricity,” although he is perhaps more a place than a person, an elusive destination that we — that is, those of us who love his music — keep traveling toward.
