From the obsessive music geek who brought you the amazing Bjork Night,
Glass Onion Square Eyes Film Club presents an Evening with Bob Dylan!
Featuring concert footage, acclaimed documentary portraits and also the 2007 Todd Haynes film 'I'm Not There'
*4pm-5.13pm* MTV UNPLUGGED Pretty self explanatory really... Filmed in 1995
*5.20pm-8.45pm* NO DIRECTION HOME (2005) Legendary
director Martin Scorsese brings us this epic documentation of Bob Dylan
from his roots in Minnesota through the coffee houses of Greenwich
Village to his tumultuous ascent to pop super stardom in 1966.
Featuring amazing archive footage, most of which was never-before-seen
at time of release, including his little known performance after Martin
Luther Kings famous speech, this is an essential and utterly detailed
picture of Bob Dylan.
*8.50pm-10.26pm* DON'T LOOK BACK (1967) Documentary covering Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England, which includes appearances by Joan Baez and Donovan D.
A. Pennebaker’s celebrated and intimate portait allows us to see the
enigmatic Dylan persona virtually in the process of formation. This is
also one of the few documentaries to develop a sense of narrative,
thanks to the “British Dylan”, Donovan, whose peripheral prescence is
the source of much amusement. Classic scenes include that Dylan’s
manager Albert Grossman and promoter Tito Burns negotiating with TV
companies; Dylan’s verbal laceration of both a hapless hack from Time
magazine and a student ligger; and the Subterranean Homesick Blues
lyric-card-discarding scene that effectively forms one of the first
non-performance rock videos. Wonderfully revealing and mythologistic.
*10.30pm-12.45am* I'M NOT THERE (2007) Biopic
of legendary singer through seven different stages in the artist’s life
played by six different actors. The events that follow are drawn as
much from Dylan's songs as from his actual biography. An
extraordinary attempt to encapsulate the many faces of Bob Dylan that
plays better to the convert than the sceptic. Featuring everyone from
Heath Ledger to Cate Blanchett as the true American idol.
Got all the above and more that I regularly watch in the comfort of my
good for you
was a good night, quite a lot of people came who hadn't seen any of them
and really enjoyed it. One of our best film nights in a while actually.
and there was a massive blizzard outside and regular snow fights inbetween
