Bob Dylan is captured on-screen as he never would be again in this ground-breaking film from D.A Pennebaker. The legendary documentarian finds Dylan in England during his 1965 tour, which would be his last as an acoustic artist. In this wildly entertaining vision of one of the twentieth century’s greatest artists, Dylan is surrounded by teen fans, gets into heated philosophical jousts with journalists, and kicks back with fellow musicians, Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price. Featuring some of Dylan’s most famous songs, including “Subterranean Homesick Blues”, “The Times They Are A-Changin’”, and “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue”, Don’t Look Back is a radically conceived portrait of an American icon that has influenced decades of vérité behind-the-scenes documentaries.

Easily one of the best documentaries on any subject ever made. It is also one of the most cinematically influential.

San Francisco Examiner

An unforgettable all-access pass behind the scenes of Bob Dylan's '65 British tour, D.A. Pennebaker's landmark 1967 rock doc all but invented the form while presaging the music video.

Village Voice

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