Best Documentary on Music EVER!By Ryan Kent from Salford, Manchester , 27 Sep 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I've just watched this on TV and it truly is everything it's hyped up to be and more. It's an inspiring documentary about Bob's early career and the whole musical climate of the early to mid sixties. Showing clips from his notorious 1966 tour of England and interviewing everyone from Joan Baez to Allen Ginsberg. After watching this all I have listened to in the past 24 hours is Bob Dylan. I think this will continue for the next few weeks. I was a casual fan before and an avid fan afterwards. The thing is I missed the second half of this but still feel review it and award it five-stars. I'll certainly be getting this the day it comes out.

Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I am not a Dylan fan, whilst I respect him as a lyricist, his vocal style, well how can I say this, if a dog sounded like this you would have it put down.
Dylan's place in the history of music is set in stone, and this movie explains why. When you see were he comes from, how he got where he did, you cannot do anything but respect him.
The film is a journey, Dylan just happens to be the central character, but just as insightful are the thoughts of Joan Baez and Pete Seegers, they were creating music at a time of great confusion, when people desparately needed answers and a meaning to everything they were witnessing.
As well as the story of folk music through the early 60's you also get to see Dylan respond to his crowd booing him for switching from an acoustic to electric guitar, in all places England, usually the corner stone of politeness, now shouting traitor and Judas, how can a man be a traitor to himself???
Countless interviews were the ones asking the questions, had not even heard Dylan sing, its quite amazing.
Buy this A: if your a Dylan fan B: if your a music fan and C: if you want an insight into how the worlds of politics and music collide.
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008A realistic view of Dylan in his own words and those of his comtempories, under skilful direction. Hate or love Dylan you must see this DVD. Great insight and ,if you're a fan,great entertainment.
No Direction Home: Bob DylanBy mdridley (104 reviews) from Catterick, United Kingdom , 22 May 2008Definitive 1962 1966 (before the crash) Dylan documentary by Martin Scorsese. Incisive and edifying interviews with friends, collaborators and penetrating, thoughtful conversations with Dylan himself. As usual, Marty achieves the perfect blend of musical performances and insightful talking head contributions.
Bring the NoiseBy a customer from Bristol , 07 Aug 2007If you read any other review which states, 'I lost interest after he went electric' then please ignore, because the reviewer hasn't been able to grasp the concept of what it is to be an artist and what it means for that artist to develop.
This documentary is all about the changes an artist goes through and the maddening reaction of a conservative audience to this change. The scenes of his shows in London and the 'Judas' chants are unbelievable. It's hard to image these young people being so negative towards change and experimentation.
This is an engrossing documentary that is let down by an all too sudden ending - are we waiting for Part 2, Marty?
HISTORY NOW! Bob Dylan's No Direction HomeBy Ginny Eaton from Surrey, England , 27 Jun 2007Seeing Bob Dylan in the 60s when he was only 21 (as I was then!) and now at 60 plus (him not me!)is fascinating. How life has altered and music scene developed. I love his latest album and still love his early work: 'How Many Roads ...' they were formative, but he didn't see it and in some ways doesn't accept that today either. Great to have DVDs to watch at my leisure.
