This film tells the story of Bob Dylan¿s 1965 tour of England. It is a fly on the wall look at the artist and is not very flattering. He is impatient with almost everyone around him and toys with the press during interviews. There is not much concert footage but you sense that Dylan is ready to move on to the electric music he would soon begin to play onstage. Listen to the Live 1966 CD and you will hear the tension between Dylan and his British audience explode. The film is interesting but I doubt I will ever watch it again.

This is a wonderful documentary on Dylan during his acoustic tour in 1965. There are some brilliant moments here, some uncomfortable moments here, and some lines that have stuck with me for 40 years. In other words, this is a great documentary. No Dylan fan should be without it. If you don't like it. "give it to Donovan".

The other reviews of this film don't seem to be very positive. I thought the film justified its reputation. One definitely has a sense of Dylan's genius, and the quality of his spirit. The alleged abrasive quality of his personality is immediately apparent, but if one were to judge fairly he is not as unlikable as the one other reviewer made him out. He was at this time a person of very high intelligence which he wanted to express as much as possible. If he was to achieve that he couldn't flatter everyone he met. He might achieve some brief popularity but what was singular and remarkable in his personality, intelligence and outlook would have been diluted and lost.
