"In the winter it was rightly cold..."

an early review of "No Direction Home," the documentary:

No Direction Home is an astounding piece of filmmaking. Although it focuses on a seemingly compact segment of Dylan's life -- the years between 1961 and 1966 -- it's the most telling portrait yet put to film. Scorsese works best when he's obsessed by his subject -- see Taxi Driver or Raging Bull -- and he's created a compelling portrait of the enigmatic Dylan. Although it runs 3½ hours, No Direction Home goes by in a flash. Working in the documentary format, Scorsese has made his best film in a decade.
