Behind the Shades: Bob Dylan on Screen

Bob Dylan’s impact on songwriting is immeasurable—but he has also left an indelible imprint on the movies.

To coincide with Dr. Mike Daley’s Curious Minds Morning Speaker Series, Bob Dylan: Words and Music, we present this tribute to the legendary singer, songwriter and Nobel laureate.

See Dylan in landmark documentaries such as D.A. Pennebaker’s Dont Look Back and Martin Scorsese’s The Last Waltz, watch him make his acting debut in Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid (for which he also wrote the music) and immerse yourself in Todd Haynes’s singular kaleidoscopic portrait I’m Not There.


DONT LOOK BACK

From Dylan’s instantly quotable anti-social one-liners, to flashing cue cards for Subterranean Homesick Blues in an alley, Dont Look Back is an endlessly iconic tribute to the enigmatic musician.
