Don't Look Back

The sound is kind of muddled, which is merely annoying during the concert segments of this classic film.  I was 14 when this was made, didn't "discover" it until I was in my 20s.

What I came to be fascinated with later than that was the juxtaposition of the smart-assed kid with the fiercely intelligent songwriter that was the young Bob Dylan.

The contrast speaks to artistry.  Artists are rarely like their best work. The young Dylan was self-obsessed like so many young stars are now.

But what he had to say about things, when he was doing the lonely work of writing, transcended his years.
