Quotes

Jack Fate: I was always a singer and maybe no more then that. Sometimes it's not enough to know the meaning of things, sometimes we have to know what things don't mean as well. Like what does it mean to not know what the person you love is capable of? Things fall apart, especially all the neat order of rules and laws. The way we look at the world is the way we really are. See it from a fair garden and everything looks cheerful. Climb to a higher plateau and you'll see plunder and murder. Truth and beauty ...

the best movie I have seen in months
4 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I am not a fan of Bob Dylan, but I think his figure in this movie is very interesting, because to me it represents more than just a connection to the great singer, but high-level personality. The plot is interesting, placed in a fictional future with unpredictable development and smart side lines. I don't understand people that said the dialogues and speech were hard to get. It just requires some brain cells to work, not just passively follow the action. This is a very special movie, it is not for people who just want the entertainment. The casting is awesome, all the actors are admirable in their roles. Bob Dylan doesn't even talk a lot, but his character is very very charming. I think a lot of people will enjoy this feature, so don't let negative comments stop you from watching it, because it is better than you might think!
