D.A. Pennebaker

Cinema verité guy.

Don't Look Back (1967) -- A good documentary style, but ultimately you just have to really really like Dylan or something for this to be too interesting (it's interesting enough, of course). I don't think Bob Dylan has the greatest or most interesting personality, so I wasn't as charmed as I would have been if Pennebaker had shot, say, The Beatles. But there you go. It's a well-made film and has some cool stuff in it, like the poster board flip music video at the beginning. B
