Review – Going into this I thought it was going to be a straightforward follow-up to Scorcese’s excellent ‘No Direction Home’ documentary a few years back. It was only after it ended I discovered that so much of it – the Sharon Stone and Jim Gianopulos interviews, “Rep. Jack Tanner”, “Stefan Van Dorp” (the European filmmaker claiming to have shot all the footage) – are all fake, a not-at-all funny practical joke on the audience that detracts from and trivializes the much more interesting true story of the actual Rolling Thunder tour.
If they were going to go this route of messing with fact and fiction, what would have been much more interesting would be to have gone back to the Renaldo & Clara footage and constructing a new film tying all the fictional stories shot then together in some compelling new way. Instead, dumb, unfunny, pointless false stories are cut in over actual events that take up time which could have been spent actually watching the many great live performances.
