Assert. Compose. Decide. Act.
"Basically all my films challenge the idea of identity as something that's cohesive and complete," -Todd Haynes
From the Q and A with the director of the new Dylan film
Q: Clearly you want to celebrate the way he shaped and reshaped his identity, but do you want appreciation of that to lead viewers back to what he was singing and writing about?
A: I don't know that he has messages, per se. I think his statements have everything to do with reactions to what was going on around him at the time. . . . He was a person who had messages at certain times and was giving answers at certain times to people who needed them. But he was just as apt to reject those answers when he came back around the next time. And ultimately I'm saying that's much more healthy. That's a much more radically positive way to be - to be able to change yourself, to dismiss yourself and move on to other things. And that, possibly, says more about who we are as a culture than some absolutely singular idea of what it means to be American
And finally Brownsville Girl:
There was a movie I seen one time, I think I sat through it twice.
I don't remember who I was or where I was bound.
All I remember about it was it starred Gregory Peck, he wore a gun and he was shot in the back.
Seems like a long time ago, long before the stars were torn down.
