      Audience Member Such a perfect memorial to a time. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 07/29/22 Full Review Audience Member You don't have to be a Bob Dylan superfan to love this movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member An amazing portrait of one of the greatest and most elusive songwriters of all time. Essential viewing for any Dylan fan. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member The "leave Britney alone" of the 60s Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review robert m A long movie about nothing in particular. Dylan has become Lawrence Welk for the baby boomers. He's easy to predict, and sometimes he's entertaining, and he's very commercial, and he's doing the same stuff that he was doing fifty years ago. Historians may be interested although the kids born in the 21st century may wonder, "Why the fuss?" Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review len s It's a great movie if you are a diehard Dylan fan. It shows a lot of old footage of his early years and ends with his motorcycle crash in 1966. However, it provides very little insight into who Dylan really is and nothing of his personal life. Overall, I enjoyed the movie and thought it was entertaining despite the length of over 3 and 1/2 hours. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Dorothy Rabinowitz Wall Street Journal Fans of Bob Dylan and others ambitious enough to sit through "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan" will discover early on that it yields no revelatory light to speak of on its subject. Jun 14, 2018 Full Review John Leonard New York Magazine/Vulture ... Martin Scorsese has finally gotten around to doing for Bob Dylan what he did for the Band back in 1978. Jan 19, 2018 Full Review Glenn Abel Hollywood Reporter As good as it gets in music documentaries. Sep 27, 2005 Full Review Jason Gorber Film Scouts With its bravado and scope the film shames lesser docs. Rated: A+ Jun 21, 2007 Full Review Ryan Cracknell Movie Views Framed by tons of rare footage, No Direction Home penetrates the soul of one of modern music's greatest icons - at least as much as Dylan will let us. Oct 8, 2006 Full Review Gregory Weinkauf ÜberCiné A competent but fawning, focusless and utterly overlong tribute to a terribly mediocre entertainer who 'sings' like a bumblebee barfing. Bloated Boomers, feel free to be interred with a copy. Soon. Aug 29, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews
