Leave it to one American legend—Martin Scorsese—to create the definitive account of a perpetually mythologized period in the history of another American legend—Bob Dylan. In 1975, while estranged from his wife, Dylan gathered a ragtag group of musicians and counter-cultural gurus and hit the road. The resulting Rolling Thunder Revue concert tour (featuring legends like Joan Baez, Joni Mitchell, and Allen Ginsberg) infused Dylan’s music with a carnival-like atmosphere, and it revitalized both his romantic and political passions. Scorsese, who is no stranger to making celebrated rock docs, brings his indelible vision to both the performances and the stories behind them. But don’t believe everything you see; like the best rock and roll documentaries, Rolling Thunder Revue not only plays with established mythology, but also gleefully creates some of its own. In Person: Editor/Producer David Tedeschi.
