Editorial Reviews

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.

Don't Look Back 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
JJJH More than 1 year ago
This film captures real moments like no documentary I've seen before. The film is comprised of random moments while the camera happened to be rolling. Nothing seems staged at all, other than the live performances. It gives you a very clear idea of what Bob Dylan is like as a person and what it would be like to follow him around for a while. A must watch or any lover of good music.

This is the motherload of Dylan-dom. The film is already a classic. But now this DVD box immerses the viewer in the world of 1965. You get the original film restored to look it's best, a new documentary with unseen footage, unreleased audio tracks from the '65 tour, a flip book, the original DON'T LOOK BACK book, director's commentary and much more! Totally worth the price. Perfect for a new fan or a Dylan die-hard.

This movie is fantastic and I can't wait for the deluxe version.

Bob Dylan is indeed the poet in the alley/Strumming his guitar tellin' us his views/Recitin' the news/Enfolding melodies/Like a velvety draped muse/He is the rhymer of reason/ A year of four seasons/ Who takes the time to explain/ Examine the facts, retrace the steps/ Amid the deluge/ Of loss and of pain/ A wayward minstrel/ Who wants everyone to hear/ Come listen to the message/ From a once younger/ Now so much older balladeer/ Some carry a lot of trouble/ Down the road of dust and rubble/ Others wake at the break of noon/ Me, I'll just keep on a listenin'/ Showin' less expression/ But always a whistlin'/ One of my favorite Dylan tunes.
