Bob Dylan is the kind of iconic musician than breeds obsessive – and discerning – fans. It’s natural, then, that Dylan devotees would be split over I’m Not There, an experimental biographical movie directed by Todd Haynes. Here, Dylan is portrayed by six different actors (Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere, and Cate Blanchett to name a few) during different periods of his life. In this clip, Blanchett plays a younger Dylan meeting poet Allen Ginsberg (David Cross). She’s got the troubadour’s mannerisms down almost better than he does, but her voice remains noticeably feminine. Commenters are expressing both admiration and disgust for her performance. What do you think? – Alexandra Quiñones
