The Moving Image of Rock

The Moving Image of Rock Movie Series: Don’t Look Back (1967)

Wednesday July 30, 2014
7:00 PM
In 1965, Bob Dylan was on tour of the United Kingdom and was on the strong upswing of his fame. He was just about to go “electric,” foregoing — what many fans believed anyway — his folk-influenced and politically-charged roots and moving in a direction that was forsaking all he had stood for to this point in time.

Documentary director D.A. Pennebaker, who some dub as the pre-eminent chronicler of the sixties counter-culture, followed Dylan all over the U.K. from show to show and hotel room to hotel room in order to provide fans and the public a better glimpse at what some believed was the 23 year-old spokesman for a generation.

What ultimately transpired was movie magic. The opening sequence of the film has been repeated in pop cultureDylan in movie with "suckcess" sign numerous times from MTV videos to feature length films. Dylan’s taunting of a Time magazine reporter, his back-and-forth contest with a local student who went on to found a major record label, and the on-screen dissolution of his relationship with folk singer Joan Baez, all make the film both humanly uncomfortable and cinematically captivating at the same time. And this does not even include the wonderful concert and back stage performances of Dylan at a pivotal point in his career, nor the numerous celebrities that appear throughout the movie including Donovan, John Mayall, Ginger Baker, Marianne Faithful and even Alan Ginsberg. It is a chance to see a young, cocky and enigmatic Dylan being charming and yet confrontational from almost 50 years before.

This film is  part of an occasional movie series entitled “The Moving Image of Rock” (showing acclaimed Rock ‘n’ Roll documentaries, dramatic movies and general motion pictures about Rock topics).

Light refreshments will be served. 

This program was made possible thanks to funding from the Friends of the Library.
