D.A. Pennebaker
Don't Look Back
1967

Filming Bob Dylan's 1965 tour of England, cinema verit´┐Ż pioneer D.A. Pennebaker became the next best thing to a fly on the wall. Beyond the title credits, the film is without captions or voice-over narration, allowing the viewer to interpret the film (and thus the subject) on its own terms. Among the variety of fascinating, near-candid moments captured was one in a hotel room: after pop-star Donovan has played a mediocre folk song, a cocky Dylan snatches the guitar from his hands and plays a masterful "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue," illustrating how the times and culture were indeed "a-changing" in the mid-1960s.
