This documentary is so inspiring and drove me to write my first review.
As a Woodstock attendee and Dylan fan, I thought this would be about
making the legendary Basement Tapes. Instead, I became intimately
familiar with the song making process through the souls of some
talented and unguarded singers and songwriters. Everyone knows Elvis
Costello and thanks to the film maker for not making this a gawk-fest
(and thanks for not pointing out Johnny Depp's participation) but who
of the "older generation" knows of Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and
Rhiannon Giddens...what a pity. And Marcus Mumford has an uncanny
ability to attract listening.
The songs that came from "Big Pink" are anthems. But who knew that Bob
was a compulsive writer and would translate what he felt about the
day's news into a song. "Tears of Rage" about the nuclear detonation in
China? I don't care what prompted him to write, but Bob Dylan's songs
had that timeless quality and conveyed thoughtfulness about larger
The collaboration in this film is magnificent and causes the viewer to
muse about the true nature of a song...that the version we hear on a
recording is just one of the many ways a song can be cast.
But what Ireally wanted to comment about is the process for Rhiannon
Giddens, a woman who possesses a unique and soulful voice that is its
own embellishment. As a woman, I have written songs and when I write
it's only ONE song at a time. Rhiannon spoke my thoughts out loud when
she said she could not generate more than one song at a time unlike her
male collaborators who had mapped out several different songs in
advance of the sessions, leading me to ponder the difference...could
that be a sex-linked trait? I watched Rhiannon's shyness and reticence,
her tendency to doubt herself until given full attention, the way she
would pull herself out of the center of the action. She referred to
herself as an amateur. Only when she was closely championed by Marcus
Mumford (kudos) was she able to bring her doubts under control and look
I was reminded of what a contribution Joni Mitchell was to my life and
how brave and single-minded she needed to be to not only produce an
album of her songs, but continue to grow and change in front of the
public. I thought how much harder it is for woman and how rare it is
for us to transition, like Madonna, or any woman performer, to
automatically command attention (like Marcus Mumford).
So thanks to Sam Jones for this film, I will watch it again. Thanks for
showing how T Bone Burnett is so skilled at "just hanging out" and how
he can just get into the roller coaster car with each of the
collaborators and coach them through their diversions.
And oh, by the way, beautiful instruments....fret-less banjo? Nice
guitars, beautiful mandolin, great backup singers
