I'm Not There

Hey, look, it's my latest movie review:
In Iā€™m Not There, director Todd Haynes talks plenty of his own jive, and pulls off the cinematic high-wire act of the year. His decision to cast six different actors as the adult Dylan ā€” including Cate Blanchett and Marcus Carl Franklin, who is barely a teenager and African-American ā€” generated headlines well in advance of the movie's release. But the finished product, including the casting gimmick, belies easy summary and dismissal. ... The film has great fun with just about everything. It's impossible to get across a sense of its energy as it frolics along like the Beatles do in a hilarious, helium-fueled cameo.
