This Dylan movie is gonna be weirder than I thought...

OK so we all know by now Todd Haynes' I'm Not There is a bizarre Dylan bipoic which features different actors (and an actress) playing Bob throughout different eras of his career or should I say "Ruminations on the life of Bob Dylan, where seven characters embody a different aspect of the musician's life and work." Regardless, Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger and Ben Whishaw all play Dylan.

Some movie stills I stumbled upon in The Times...

Am I gonna have to take mushrooms before going to see this flick to really enjoy it?

Charlotte Gainsbourg plays "Claire"? one of Dylan's wives?

Cate Blanchett's Dylan in the "Felliniesque sequence"

A scene from the Richard Gere Dylan section looks like a scene from Burton's "Big Fish"

Michele Williams as "Coco Rivington", the love interest of Blanchett’s Dylan.

Uh, Richard Gere as Pat Garrett Dylan?

Not sure whats going on here. Jim James from My Morning Jacket in white face? Again, reminds me of Big Fish.
