33. I'M NOT THERE
dir. Todd Haynes

Because the simple way to go, as though such a thing would ever interest Haynes, would be to offer Bob Dylan as someone whose
uniqueness lifted him above his hidebound country and his narrow times. Haynes finds Dylan complicated because he both embodied and
dissented from a polychromatic country and a rotating cycle of weighty, complicated times, rendered gorgeously via a kaleidoscope of filmic idioms.
