Default Re: Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story

I found it boring and was really insulted with the blatant fabricated stories that were included. I love a lot of Dylan stuff but always felt him to be a made up person, someone who went out of his way to try to fool people. This movie shows it and he even says so himself. Murray McLachlan says the same thing in the bio by Nicholas Jennings.. Dylan is a character he plays..Lightfoot is the real deal. I actually wanted to punch Dylan in the throat a few times - his rambling arrogance just irked me so much! I frankly couldn't wait for that Joni song to end. And it bothered me that everyone in that room but Lightfoot was there learning and sitting right in with her.. in his own home! ugh. Way too much Ginsberg too. I'll never get that time i spent watching it back... gawd almighty I had to watch the 1972 BBC Lightfoot special twice to wash the Dylan crap out of my head.
