Sometimes, life is good: Last night Rolling Stone got an exclusive screening of the new Todd Haynes film I’m Not There in which six actors portray Bob Dylan. We’re pretty much sworn to secrecy, but can’t resist giving you a few highlights:
• Cate Blanchett as Dylan, meeting Brian Jones at a party and calling the Rolling Stones a “groovy covers band,” then screaming “play your old stuff” at a statue of Jesus Christ alongside David Cross as Allen Ginsberg.
• Christian Bale as the late-’70s born-again Dylan, sermonizing about Christ and delivering the hidden Dylan gospel classic “Pressing On,” from Saved, sung by John Doe.
• My Morning Jacket’s Jim James’ heartbreaking rendition of the basement tapes chestnut “Goin’ to Acapulco” in full Rolling Thunder Review white face.
• Sonic Youth’s brilliant version of the unreleased Dylan classic “I’m Not There” from the basement tapes session that plays during the closing credits.
Hollywood star Cate Blanchett was in Brisbane today – not to promote a movie, but to encourage Queenslanders to become aware of the issues around climate change.
Blanchett visited the drought-ravaged Lake Samsonvale, north of Brisbane.
There she launched the Australian Conservation Foundation’s new online campaign, whoonearthcares.com.
She says the campaign is about bringing people from all over the country together to work on climate change solutions.
“I think that the majority of Australians are beginning to realise that we can’t hope to address the very real issues of water shortages and drought unless we significantly reduce Australia’s spiralling greenhouse emissions,” she said.
“Climate change is an issue that affects each and every one of us, and therefore it’s up to each and every one of us to act responsibly and do something about it.
