Storyline

When Bob Dylan turns 70, his iconic career will have spanned five decades. Yet, a true portrait of the reclusive "voice of the generation" has eluded Dylan fans. Through exclusive insider interviews, and never-before-seen photos and footage spanning Dylan's 50-year career, Bob Dylan Revealed offers an intimate biography of who Bob Dylan was, and who he is today. Personal accounts cover Dylan's 1962 Greenwich Village days, his first Electric Tour in 1966, his 1967 stint in drug rehab disguised as a motorcycle accident, his 1974 Comeback Tour, the Desire Album and Rolling Thunder Revue of 1975-1976, his 1978 Entertainer Tour, Dylan's born-again Christian era of 1979-1981, his return to Judaism, and today's ongoing Bob Dylan Never Ending Tour.

Bob Dylan Revealed (2011)

** (out of 4)

Here's another Bob Dylan documentary from director Joel Gilbert and this one here was clearly put together to try and cash-in on Dylan's 70th birthday since it did get quite a bit of media attention. I've been quite positive on Gilbert's previous Dylan documentaries because they featured interviews with people that sometime get overlooked or not questioned at all. The problem with BOB Dylan REVEALED is that for the most part it just features interviews from these previous discs thrown together. We get several periods of Dylan's career covered including his rise to fame, going electric, his brief retirement to Woodstock, the comeback, the religious period and then the Never Ending Tour. Mickey Jones, Rob Stoner, Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Barry Feinstein, Scarlet Rivera, Winston Watson, Joel Selvin, Jerry Wexler and A.J. Webberman are among the people interviewed. If you haven't seen any of the previous films then you might be more entertained by this thing but once you've seen the complete films it's hard to get too excited or interested in this cut down footage that was just thrown together. There are a few new interview clips that I'm guessing were just outtakes from the earlier movies and we at least get some archival interviews with Dylan thrown in but in the end it really doesn't matter. This certainly isn't a horrid film but it's just rather pointless if you've already seen it.
