An intimate portrait of one of the most influential songwriters of our times.

Bob Dylan is more than the folk singer touted by the record industry, more than the songwriter whose poetry is the only kind many of us remember, more than the Kerouac-kid who haunts our best writing. He is the force that blew us out of one era and into another. His words are ambiguous, his style constantly changing and his avoidance of publicity obsessive, yet he remains the influential voice of our times.

In this groundbreaking film from D. A. Pennebaker, Bob Dylan is captured on-screen as he never would be again. The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in England during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist.

This wildly entertaining vision of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists, shows Dylan surrounded by teen fans, getting into heated philosophical jousts with journalists, and kicking back with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price.

Featuring some of Dylan’s most famous songs, including Subterranean Homesick Blues, The Times They Are A-Changin', and It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue, Dont Look Back is a radically conceived portrait of an American icon that has influenced decades of vérité behind-the-scenes documentaries.
