Dylan's not there- a film preview

Ever the iconoclast, film-maker Todd Haynes cast several people to play another great iconoclast Bob Dylan, including Cate Blanchett, as seen in this clip above, also featuring David Cross as Allen Ginsberg. Admittedly, I've had mixed feelings about this upcoming film- the idea is kind of enticing but it could also be an embarrassing flop. One thing I was a little disappointed to see was that Blanchett is dressed up like Dylan '66 rather than herself- I think the later would have been more audacious and interesting to see. If it's just gonna be a group of actors dressed up and acting like Dylan, that does dull my enthusiasm a little. Of course, I'll have to see the film regardless...
