Format: DVD
According to one newspaper in Canada, NDH is the best Scorsese film in five years. Having just seen the world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, I can confirm this. NDH lives up to the hype.
NDH matches America's greatest filmmaker with its most influential musician. This is a straight doc, flashing back and forth between Dylan and the Hawks getting booed on U.K. stages in 1966 while chronologically telling the life story of Robert Zimmerman/Bob Dylan.
There are generous interview clips with Dylan himself who is relaxed, yet candid (for Dylan). However, Joan Baez lights up the screen with vintage clips of her 60s folk performances with and without Dylan. Pete Seeger (folk music scene), Suze Rotolo (political activism), Al Kooper (recording Like A Rolling Stone) and Bobby Neuwirth (1965 UK tour) are supporting players who help tell the story, all looking light-years different from the 60s.
Vintage film & video clips include those from the summer 1963 March on Washington (Dylan says King's speech still haunts him today), the Steve Allen Show, the Folk Songs show, Andy Warhol's screen test (an unearthed gem), 1965/66 press conferences, and best of all outtakes from EAT THE DOCUMENT. All video & film are presented in sharp quality. Sound is amazing and clear.
The film takes its time in telling Dylan's story until 1966. The highlight is the infamous 1965 Newport concert where Dylan went electric. One eyewitness reports that 30% of the crowd was booing. Others say they couldn't even hear Dylan, since the band was drowning him out.
Overall, Dylan comes off as a renegade, a prodigy, opportunist, visionary, traitor, genius, but always changing. Dylan himself says that people are constantly changing and that is the theme of the film.

Format: DVD
Perhaps Bob Johnston says it best (on DVD 2): "He can't help what he's doing. I mean he's got the Holy Spirit about him, you can look at him and tell that."
Johnston, the producer of Highway 61 Revisited, may only be reflecting on one historic set of sessions, but his comment may well apply to the whole of Dylan's early career. The Spirit hovers and breathes and kicks in and around Dylan.
Scorsese's documentary focuses on Dylan's career up until his motorcycle accident in the summer of 1966. It is fittingly divided into two parts: 1) Dylan - channeling Woody Guthrie and finding a voice both young and ancient, and 2) Dylan's iconoclastic repudiation of 'protest' or 'topical' songwriting. Dylan and a cadre of songwriting peers tell the story, but the songs stand out beyond the history.
This is a must-have for those who cherish these songs. It is a treasure of live performances and contextualized performances captivating in their own right. Best of all, it is a visual companion to Dylan's Chronicles.

Format: DVD
I was out on the deck cooking a steak and listening to Bob Dylan playing down in Bayfront Park when between songs he pointed out to the crowd that he had been born here in the Zenith City in a hospital on the side of the hill. This was the second time that Dylan had played Duluth, and the fact that he acknowledged this is the city of his birth was seen as icing on the cake because most of us were surprised he would ever come back here to play. That is because the man born Robert Zimmerman has been running from northern Minnesota pretty much since the day he graduated from Hibbing High School.

The title of "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan" emphasizes that the singer-songwriter was a construct and attempts to chronicle the transformation from Robert Zimmerman to Bob Dylan. The key influence has always been considered to be Woody Guthrie, and Dylan's visit to Guthrie in the hospital is an iconic Sixties vision quest, but this documentary is able to work in many more names into the mix. The connections to the music at any time during the early stages of Dylan's career are only addressed tangentially, but that only underscores that this is not a music appreciation course on Bob Dylan, as much as that would be nice. This is an attempt to preserve the extant record on the first quarter century of Dylan's life, with an emphasize on the five years at the end of that period that represent the most creative and significant portion of his career, aided and abetted by talking heads the likes of Joan Baez, Allen Ginsberg, Liam Clancy, and Al Kooper, who provide memories and retrospective insights (Kooper's story on how he ended up playing the organ on "Like a Rolling Stone" is a testament to serendipity in the music business).
