VIDEO: Martin Scorsese Presents ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: A BOB DYLAN STORYVIDEO: Martin Scorsese Presents ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: A BOB DYLAN STORY
by Stage Tube - Jun 3, 2019

The resulting tour, the Rolling Thunder Revue, would reveal a Dylan rarely seen: playful, mask-wearing, intense, expansive, rejuvenated.  Masterfully capturing both an icon and a nation in transition, director Martin Scorsese tells the tale using footage that was abandoned for decades, now gorgeously restored, taking viewers into the heart of a freewheeling, electrifying musical gamble. Inspired by Dylan's own restless spirit, Scorsese performs some breathtaking sleight of hand, summoning nostalgic fantasists, boxers, magicians, starlets and testifiers of all stripes, and exploding the boundaries of what makes a conventional documentary.
