Movie recommendation: I'm not there (2007)

I'm Not There is really one of those movies that use a different way of telling someone's life.The film is none other than Bob Dylan's life, but what really draws attention to the film is that there are six characters in focus and ... All of them are Bob Dylan! But also none of them are Bob Dylan!
A wise choice, since the controversial composer has many facets of his personality troubled for decades.The actors chosen for this great movie to play Bob Dylan are Christian Bale(Batman in the new Batman movies), Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger(Joker in Batman and the Dark Knight, after this movie Heath just do a few movies before he dies) and Ben Whishaw.

All the six "Bob Dylans"
It is difficult to make a review of a film like this because it is better understood by fans of the musician, but it is a good opportunity to know his work.Maybe you're wondering why six actors interpret as none of them is the real character, it is because the film's director Todd Haynes has not found a better way to show the various faces and phases of Bob Dylan had in his life.For example in the case of Cate Blanchett, she plays Jude Quinn in the film, it represents the moment when Bob Dylan began using an electric guitar and started to change his style, it had several criticisms of the fans.
Another important aspect of the film is its fantastic soundtrack,
are two CDs of covers by voices of singers of various styles like Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam, Sonic Youth, The Black Keys, Karen O, The Million Dollar Basher, and more.
I will leave here a trailer for those interested in the movie.
