Eat the Document (1972)

*** (out of 4)

Bob Dylan "directed" this look at his 1966 concert tour through Europe, which shows him at his musical best and also shows that many of the fans want folk and not rock. Only Dylan knows if we'll ever see the complete, original version of this thing but what's left here is pretty interesting even though you can't help but wish Dylan had left more of the music in. The film pretty much tries to capture what Dylan was seeing at the time and on that level the film works well. There are still plenty of musical performances including Ballad of a Thin Man, Like a Rolling Stone and various others including a duet with Johnny Cash. What Dylan also does is create a great look at a mind altered, stoned view of touring, which adds a great deal of surreal nature to the film.
