Allan Arkush on

No Direction Home

Released 2005
Distributor Spitfire Pictures

Martin Scorsese leaves no stone unrolled in his 2005 documentary about the life and times of Bob Dylan. The director worked with a treasure trove of rare interviews and archival footage assembled by Dylan’s manager Jeff Rosen—it’s a 3 1/2 hour musical journey that shapes up as one of the most thorough portraits of the great songwriter ever produced.
