I'M NOT THERE - Trailer

So have anyone seen this Todd Haynes film about the life of Bob Dylan?
I went to see it a little while ago when it first came out and well, really enjoyed it. It got an 81 per cent on Rotten Tomatoes which I think probably is a fair score, maybe I'd have given it more of a 90 per cent but then I am a Dylan fan.
I had read Dylan's biography just a couple of months before seeing the film which if I hadn't I think I'd have been lost from the beginning. I don't want to spoil it for you if you haven't already seen this flick but I would say if you've just given up cigarettes as a new years resolution, this film might tempt you to start again.
The line up of actors, let me see, Cate Blanchett (I didn't recognise her in the film at all) Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, they all do a great job. I particularly liked Cate Blanchett, she put a lot into this film and deserved her award of Best Supporting Role at the Golden Globes - and guess what, she wasn't there.
So if you like some smooth cinematography, this is possibly your bag, it never tires, a constant flow of quality in the directing throughout the whole 135 mins and at the end, it just felt like Todd Haynes didn't want to stop. The music sounds fresh and well it's just a great film. I'm looking forward to setting up an LCD Beamer in the living room (when I've found one I can afford) and sitting back and watching it all over again.
