Dylan Double Feature

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Happy 70th, Bob Dylan! Well, almost. Here in New York, the Film Forum movie theater is celebrating the troubadour's upcoming birthday with a double feature of two films that celebrate a younger Dylan: the 1967 documentary “Don’t Look Back” and “The Other Side of the Mirror,” a compilation of Dylan’s appearances at the Newport Folk Festival. New York Times film critic A.O. Scott recently took in both movies and joins us to share his reaction.

I was backstage at the Newport folk festival that night, the audience booed Dylan, he was devastated by the response, when he came backstage he was in tears, he sat down with Joan Biaz who was comforted him
