Blanchett as Dylan, Cross as Ginsburg

A clip from the upcoming Bob Dylan sorta-biopic I'm Not There, directed by Todd Haynes.

That's Cate Blanchett as Dylan and David Cross as Allen Ginsburg.

I first heard about this project a couple of years ago, and I was ambivalent at first; the use of multiple actors to play the Dylan character seemed like the height of artsy self-indulgence. Then I saw pictures of Blanchett in costume and it whetted my curiosity. Now I'm really interested to see how this turns out. This clip gets my hopes up; it really mimics the style of Don't Look Back, and Blanchett's seems to do a good job of playing a man.

I'm Not There will be released in September.
