Netflix has released the trailer for “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese,” a “fever dream” documentary on the famed musician, as directed by Scorsese. The trailer shows Dylan on the road, in conversation and on stage as it depicts his music and influence in the fall of 1975 America.
ROLLING THUNDER REVUE: A BOB DYLAN STORY BY MARTIN SCORSESE captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975, and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed that fall. Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese creates a one-of-a-kind movie experience: part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream. Featuring Joan Baez, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, Sam Shepard, Allen Ginsberg, and Bob Dylan giving his first on-camera interview in over a decade. The film goes beyond mere reclamation of Dylan’s extraordinary music—it’s a roadmap into the wild country of artistic self-reinvention.
Scorsese, the acclaimed director behind “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull” and “Hugo,” has an anticipated year ahead. Not only is this documentary project on the plate, but his drama, “The Irishman,” starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, is slated for a Netflix release as well. After production pushed it back from last year, the film released a teaser which primes it for a 2019 release. An official trailer for the mob drama shouldn’t be too much longer to wait for.
Among the cities screening “Rolling Thunder Revue” theatrically are London, Paris, Washington, D.C., Nashville, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Boston, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Portland, Tulsa, Tempe, Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Bologna and Sydney. The Los Angeles and New York screenings will continue after the film premieres on the streaming network.
“Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese” hits Netflix streaming June 12 with a limited theatrical run to accompany it. It is produced by Grey Water Park Productions and Sikelia Productions.
