Overview

Enigmatic rock legend Bob Dylan stars as an enigmatic rock legend talk about a casting coup! in this purposefully eccentric satiric comedy. Uncle Sweetheart John Goodman is an unscrupulous concert promoter who has figured out a way to cash in on the feelings of doubt and uncertainty that plague his nation, which is being torn apart by civil war and political revolution. Sweetheart has decided he will stage a massive benefit concert, though the unnamed charity would appear to be his checking account. Sweetheart hires television producer Nina Veronica Jessica Lange to help promote the show and sell it as a nation-wide cable-cast event, while Sweetheart pulls a few strings to arrange for the perfect headliner -- Jack Fate Bob Dylan, a legendary songwriter who is currently serving a term in prison. With Fate out from behind bars, Sweetheart and Veronica set out to sell their grand spectacle to the world, though one determined investigative journalist Jeff Bridges has set out to throw a spenner into the works of Uncle Sweetheart and his epic fundraiser. Marking the directorial debut of comedy writer Larry Charles, Masked and Anonymous also features Penelope Cruz and Luke Wilson; the film was shown in competition at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.

Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
A fascinating, vexing, indulgent, visionary, pretentious, mesmerizing pop culture curio.
Philadelphia Inquirer
The music is great. Dylan and his band do a half-dozen songs that crackle with energy.

    I loved this movie

    Great actors. Interesting message. I've written alot of the dialog down in a journal. Gotta have some patience to watch and really listen to what they're trying to say.
