As someone who doesn't care about Bob Dylan at all, I'm Not There just made me want to see Sam Peckinpah's Pat Garrett And Billy The Kid. This isn't to say it's bad: It's a fine movie, but it's at its best when its able to depict something other than Bob Dylan saying cryptic things in interviews and press conferences, which is approximately a third of the film- Essentially, that's all Ben Whishaw's depiction does.

PAT GARRETT & BILLY THE KID is one of my favorite westerns. I was sad that they didn't include a knife throwing-journalist version of Bob Dylan in I'M NOT THERE...I love his character as "Alias". + the soundtrack to that movie is amazing.
