Netflix has shared the first official trailer for Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese this Monday morning.
The trailer showcases all the different elements that one might expect from a film being billed as “part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream.” The trailer shows off rare footage from Dylan’s first on-camera interview in well over a decade, rousing concert footage and some classic cinematic trickery in equal parts.
Netflix promises something truly special in a press release:
Masterfully capturing both an icon and a nation in transition, director Martin Scorsese tells the tale using footage that was abandoned for decades, now gorgeously restored, taking viewers into the heart of a freewheeling, electrifying musical gamble. Inspired by Dylan’s own restless spirit, Scorsese performs some breathtaking sleight of hand, summoning nostalgic fantasists, boxers, magicians, starlets and testifiers of all stripes, and exploding the boundaries of what makes a conventional documentary.
Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese
