Barnes & Noble - Rachel Saltz
A portrait of the artist as a young brat, D. A. Pennebaker's Don't Look Back follows Bob Dylan on his 1965 tour of Britain. On the cusp of his incarnation as a rock-'n-roll icon, Dylan exhibits an eerie confidence and self-possession on stage. Offstage, the center of a media onslaught -- almost quaint to today's eyes -- Dylan is a whirlwind of words, sometimes charming and insightful, sometimes badgering and sophomoric. He delights in irritating journalists small and large (he informs a Time reporter that a bum vomiting in the street is what's "real") and playing bad boy with his hangers-on and pals -- Alan Price, Bob Neuwirth, Joan Baez, and, in a wonderfully vicious sequence, Donovan. Pennebaker's verité camera shows clearly what sets Dylan apart from the hurly-burly that surrounds him: his ability to withdraw and focus. Watch him typing lyrics in a hotel room while Baez sings, or in a telling moment just before going onstage: Neuwirth clowns, people wander in and out, but Dylan is already apart and alone -- the artist ready to step into the spotlight of the world stage.
