Outdoor Cinema Film Festival Presents: Don't Look Back

Arguably the greatest music documentary ever. Bob Dylan’s 1965 British tour, intimately recorded by legendary filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker, reveals the genius/enfant terrible at the height of his growling ‘60s counter-culture persona, whether astonishing audiences with Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right, Subterranean Homesick Blues, or The Times They Are A-Changin’ –or torturing a TIME magazine reporter with Sphinx-like responses. The opening sequence, with Dylan in the alleyway, discarding placards on which his lyrics are scrawled, has become a culturally iconic moving image that has been ripped off ad infinitum. See the original.

1967, 96 minutes. Directed by D.A. Pennebaker.
