Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan

Via Ain’t It Cool News, a clip from Todd Haynes’s forthcoming biopic of Bob Dylan, I’m Not There, with Cate Blanchett playing Dylan, which opens Wednesday:

Rolling Stone says:

Not content with just one actor to portray Dylan in the act of inventing and reinventing himself, Haynes hired six and hit the jackpot with Cate Blanchett. She burns through Haynes’ head-trip odyssey like an illuminating torch. Blanchett’s soon-to-be-legendary performance is not a stunt, it’s some kind of miracle. Playing the skinny, androgynous Dylan in his electric years — when his hair stood on end to match his fried nerves — Blanchett extends the possibilities of acting. You won’t see a better example of interpretive art this year by man or woman.
