A classic from legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker, this behind-the-scenes look at the 23-year-old Dylan set the standard for this kind of film. It's got all that famous imagery: the black-and-white verite photography, Dylan standing there tossing away cue cards with the lyrics to "Subterranean Homesick Blues." All impish charisma and childish impulse, Dylan tours England in 1965 with Joan Baez and Donovan, tussles with reporters and forges one of the many facets of his persona we'd come to know, or at least think we know. "Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story" parodies this time in Dylan's life with dead-on hilarity.
