To help understand or further complicate -- the evolving mystery of the bard, here comes the Dylan-inspired movie Im not There, a fanciful pseudo-biopic wherein six actors (including Richard Gere, Heath Ledger... even Cate Blanchett) play Dylanesque characters inspired by real events, Dylans music, and/or Dylan lore. One Bob iteration depicts him as a pre-pubescent black boy channeling the blues and Woody Guthrie.
This film could be the cinematic bastard child of D.A Pennebaker and Being John Malkovich, but as Dylan himself might say, its alright, Ma... its only a movie.
Catch Im not There during its opening week at Gateway Theater (E. Sunrise Blvd. and US 1, Fort Lauderdale). Tickets are $6 to $8.50. Call 954-763-7994, or visit www.sunrisecinemas.com.
