Avoid Masked and Anonymous at all costs...

Saw Dylan's new movie tonight with TM and AM. It was really awful. Trust me, you do not want to see this movie. I like all different kinds of film, including surrealist film and plotless character studies and quirky indie films and even action movies or thrillers. I can appreciate them all on their own level. But this movie doesn't work on any level; it consists entirely of one-dimensional characters staggering from scene to scene spouting stilted, pseudo-profound aphorisms at each other while Bob Dylan squints at them. It was tragic to see so many truly fine actors struggling valiantly to inject some life into this movie. Even TM, who is a big Dylan fan, thought the movie sucked.

As amazing as this sounds, the nearly-9-minute BMW commercial that ran before the movie (in lieu of trailers) was better than the movie itself. The commercial wasn't very good, either.
