With Thanksgiving two weeks ahead, and the holydays soon after ... no, that's too much. Anyway, I recommend Marty Scorsese's documentary, "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan," which is really something. A lot of concert footage, archival stuff. Well done. Will he leave this earth unrewarded? I'm referring to Scorsese, and the unconscionable lack of Oscar awards given to him.

As for Dylan, I have seen him in concert. One time. April 5, 2004, at American University. When he played, he didn't look at the audience, which was strange. Mostly new stuff; the old good ones were almost unrecognizable. Why "No Direction Home" had to be a PBS television thing is completely beyond me, regardless of the length. It doesn't matter. It's a great doc.
