This weekend I watched Martin Scorsese’s documentary, No Direction Home, about Bob Dylan and I couldn’t help but find myself a bit smitten with the (as Joan Baez put it) “baby face” Bob, so I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite shots from the film. I mean, would you look at that young and handsome face?!
Although I happened to know a lot of the information presented in the documentary from the countless times I had Bob Dylan history pounded into me at school (you learn a few things from hanging out with UNT music majors and Dylan fanatics in college), I still enjoyed learning more about his influences and other folk artists who helped Dylan shape the scene; and also seeing behind-the-scenes footage from his early days (I adored his humor!). No Direction Home isn’t a short film, but I highly recommended it for anyone looking to learn more about Dylan/the 60s folk scene, or see Scorsese’s documentary side. It’s currently available on Netflix Instant Streaming.
This photo is my personal favorite. I love Dylan’s reflection and expression in the mirror.
