Other Side of the Mirror, The: Bob Dylan at Newport (2007)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Murray Lerner (Festival) 'directs' this documentary that covers the 1963-65 Newport Music Festival performances by Bob Dylan. There's no question that these concerts are a put of music history but I must admit that I'm disappointed by this film because it's only the concert footage without any new interviews or anything like that. Even a few of the concerts songs are edited so I'm really not sure what the point of this thing was. There are countless documents of these events including the recent Martin Scorsese film so why this release was needed isn't known. The performances by Dylan are all very good, although I think all three are a tad bit overrated. The film does offer some shots that I haven't seen before but everything else has been available for decades.
