Todd HaynesI’m Not There, about the life and legend of Bob Dylan, “explores different pockets of a man who refused to be categorized. I have always loved his music, but I’m terrified about this because I am besotted. I watch the press conference he gave in San Francisco in 1965, or whenever it was, and just think, ‘I love you.’

“The worst thing an actor can do is fall in love with someone they’re about to portray, but then I’m not playing him — my character is called Jude. [The film is] a riff on who Dylan could possibly be. When I saw the script I thought, ‘This is so out there I can’t run away from this.” — from a Cate Blanchett interview by Guardian‘s Mark Salisbury.
