Bob Dylan: Odds and Ends (2021) 9/26
* To be honest, I don’t know much about Bob Dylan or much about his career. This is a weird documentary to start my education on this music icon. I see this is a lot of interview and archival footage and not necessarily a comprehensive covering of Dylan.
* The documentary starts by quickly establishing his folk roots without going too much in-depth. We get insight into his early career by Roy Silver. Then we go on tour with Dylan and we see how difficult his shows would be and how his albums We get an interesting narration by Jeff Bridges about the apparent legendary basement tapes which is credited to boost the unreleased bootleg industry. As someone who wasn’t too familiar with Dylan’s this documentary is definitely geared towards people who like Dylan and more invested in his career. It was a awkward blend of moments and deep cut knowledge drops. 1/2 stars
