What a great bargain! For only $8 (if you're a member) $14 (if you're not), you can watch the Martin Scorsese directed documentary No Direction Home: Bob Dylan at the Film Forum.
Released very briefly to television in 2005, the documentary focuses on Bob Dylan's life from 1961 when he arrived in New York City to his motorcyle accident and subsequent retirement from music in 1966. It contains in-depth interviews with Dylan, poet Allen Ginsberg, singers Joan Baez, Pete Seeger, Liam Clancy, Maria Muldaur, Peter Yarrow and more.
It's a fascinating look at the then-thriving Folk scene, New York in the early 60s and of course, the singer himself. David Fricke of Rolling Stone said the film is “The ultimate rock & roll odyssey…masterfully directed by Martin Scorsese, this is an electrifying account of an unprecedented life.”
The Film Forum is holding one showing only! It will be tomorrow (Saturday, December 10) at 5 pm. The Film Forum is located at 209 West Houston Street, west of 6th Avenue.
Other events at the theater include screening of Busby Berkeley's musicals, Daughters of the Dust, and Casablanca. To contact the box office, get directions or see the full list of film offerings, visit their website.
