This is a great movie. Especially fascinating is the use of Dylan songs as background, while the tunes of his character Jack Fate are apparently seen as the singer's own material. Dylan's songs, used throughout the film, are done by others, and seem almost a textural addition to his character (who seems nonplussed by both his filmic notoriety and his own real-life fame). Dylan mumbles his way through this film in true subterranean style, and Goodman, Bridges, Cruz and other cameo luminaries waltz through this messaged fable like clients waiting for "the" call from their agents. Dylan is a master of subtlety and brow- arching wisdom, and while it is difficult to determines how much of this is acting and how much simply Dylan's own ethereal detachment, the film remains a strong statement and a piece of musical history- if only for the fact that Bob Dylan is the star! Masked and Anonymous is a must for any indie film buff, and a treat for the serious Dylan fan. John Stoneking/Topanga, California
