Like A Rolling Stone


by Bob Dylan

Movies & TV

Dont [sic] Look Back (1965)

D.A. Pennebaker's original Dylan documentary gives a close-up, chaotic view of Dylan around the time that "Like A Rolling Stone" emerged. The bad punctuation in the title imitates Dylan's own idiosyncratic use of punctuation.

No Direction Home (2005)

Martin Scorsese brilliantly puts together this documentary on the early career of Bob Dylan.

I'm Not There (2008)

Writer/director Todd Haynes gives us Dylan in six parts, each played by a different actor (or actress), in this challenging, audacious film.

The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live at the Newport Folk Festival (2007)

Led by the tag "Bob Dylan plugged in an entire generation," this documentary is a close look at the 1965 appearance that so dramatically changed Bob Dylan's trajectory as a musician.
