Still not sure what to make of the film, but the previews have been well done. Time, as they say, will tell. It will be interesting to see how the director handles the "Gospel Dylan." But since there are six different actors playing at least six of Dylan's famous (or infamous?) masked selves, who is to say which one is for real? We're thinking that probably the most "real" Dylan yet is the one now doing his radio show, which is phenominal this year! Last week's theme was "Classic Rock" and the topic was, you guessed it, "rocks." One of the great things about the radio show is that we get to hear Dylan's humor, which is plentiful. (Boo!) He has got to be one of the funniest people on the planet - but often he never even smiles (used to though) when he is at his funniest, which just makes it funnier. Not sure? Watch this. And make sure you make it to 4.04 ("where do these kids get their guns?" never mind the comment about Mick Jagger). This is just over the top. And the MTV reporter is clueless, just clueless. Tennis anyone?
