A proposta de inúmeros Dylans me diz que em algo esse cara vai aprontar. A música é foda, o elenco idem.


Mas o essencial: Todd Haynes, que é o responsável por uma obra-prima assustadora (e injustamente esquecida), que é À Salvo.

Todd Haynes 

Interviewed by Noel Murray

November 20th, 2007

word first leaked out that filmmaker Todd Haynes was making a Bob Dylan
biopic that would star Heath Ledger, Richard Gere, and Cate Blanchett
as the folk-rock icon, people unfamiliar with Haynes scratched their
heads, while Haynes fans immediately circled the film's release date on
their calendars. Outside of the popular '50s melodrama pastiche Far From Heaven—which confused some with its earnestness—Haynes' work has tended to be arty and obscure, and the Dylan film I'm Not There
is no exception. Yet few contemporary filmmakers have been as daring as
Haynes at recombining familiar pop elements to comment on what they
mean. In movies like Poison, Safe, and the glam-rock fantasia Velvet Goldmine,
Haynes has advanced a style that's simultaneously intellectual and
emotional, producing films that are far more engaging than mere plot
descriptions make them sound. Haynes recently spoke with The A.V. Club about how he's able to convey such a personal vision while working in a medium as collaborative as film.


The A.V. Club: Between I'm Not There, Velvet Goldmine, and Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story, you've made three films about popular music. Is some part of you a frustrated rock critic?

Todd Haynes: I don't think I'm a frustrated rock critic; I love
this music. I didn't want to be a mean old rock critic to these
subjects. You always feel like rock critics are frustrated musicians. I
envy musicians their ability to live their art and share it with an
audience, in the moment. From a filmmaker's standpoint, that's so rare
and pure in a way that I'm sure is way more complicated than it
appears. The grass is always greener, right? But music—and I'm
certainly not alone in this—has had such a powerful effect on my life.
Pop music can get inside us and enter our memory bubbles. It provides
those true Proustian moments, unlocking sensations, unlocking our
imaginations. Music inspired me as a filmmaker. So no, I don't think
I'm a frustrated rock critic.

AVC: But there's definitely something evaluative in the way you
hold up these artists' work: analyzing it, exploring it, and explaining
what it means to you personally. Isn't that what a good critic does?

TH: No, you're right. Just as I was finishing my last
sentence, I was thinking about Greil Marcus, whose work was clearly an
inspiration on this film, and who's now my buddy—which still gets me
all excited, that we send each other e-mails. But his kind of creative
imagination, and the way he's converted his own medium into something
you can't even categorize, is something I do feel inspired by, and
something I hope I can do as a filmmaker.

AVC: The Richard Gere segments of I'm Not There are like a Greil Marcus essay brought to life.

TH: Yeah, totally. Marcus' Invisible Republic was
instrumental in the whole period of build and rediscovery I found
myself in during the year 2000. I read the book before I got my hands
on the five-disc Basement Tapes collection—the original
recordings that include the song "I'm Not There." That was a whole
free-play time for me, of discovery and excavation of material I'd
never heard before. And Greil Marcus' book was part of the spell.
