Sunday Cinema: Bob Dylan - Eat The Document

UNRELEASED DOCUMENTARY FEATURES BOB DYLAN
JOHN LENNON, JOHNNY CASH AND MEMBERS OF THE BAND

In 1965 director D.A. Pennebaker followed Bob Dylan on a tour through the United Kingdom, and the resulting film - Dont Look Back (sic) - has influenced generation of filmmakers and served as a template for many rock docs that came after it. In 1966 Pennebaker once again joined Dylan on a tour of the U.K. and the resulting film - Eat The Document - never was officially released, but is well worth your hour to view it.

Dylan was on the road with members of a group that would soon call themselves The Band including guitarist Robbie Robertson and bassist Rick Danko. The film was shot for ABC who eventually turned down the submission as they claimed it was "incomprehensible for a mainstream audience."

Not only do we get to see footage of Dylan and his band performing across the U.K. on songs such as "Ballad Of A Thin Man" and "One Too Many Mornings," but we also bear witness to a limo ride featuring Bob and The Beatles' John Lennon as well as a duet between Dylan and Johnny Cash on Cash's "I Still Miss Someone."

Let's watch the 51-minute Bob Dylan documentary Eat The Document:
