Oscar-nominated documentarian D.A. Pennebaker (The War Room) covers Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England, which includes appearances by Joan Baez and Donovan.

The film chronicles Dylan's concert appearances, hotel room conversations, and transportation downtime, pulling back the curtain on the folk messiah at the end of his relationship with Joan Baez and on the cusp of his creative shift toward rock music.

Pennebaker has fashioned a relentlessly honest, brilliantly edited documentary permeated with the troubador-poet’s music.

The film's greatest incidental pleasures are images of a time when outlaw musicians wore suit jackets and the craggy Dylan was a delicate, unconventionally handsome young man.

The restless hand-held camera is the main disadvantage of a fascinating document: a sore sight for the eyes, with enough whip-pans to defeat the most determined self-flagellant.

As an exercise in the unbelievably cool, DA Pennebaker's documentary on Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England is unparalleled.

D.A. Pennebaker's 1967 film, which invented the rock documentary, is a time capsule from the period when Sgt. Pepper was steamrolling Mr. Tambourine Man.
