Produced by Jeff Rosen (American Roots Music) and Nigel Sinclair (The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years), along with Susan Lacy (American Masters) and Anthony Wall (BBC Arena), the 3 1/2 hour film focuses on Dylan's life and music from 1961 to 1966, detailing the artist's journey from his hometown of Hibbing, Minnesota through his emergence in the folk music scene of New York's Greenwich Village to his controversial decision to go "electric" and his rise to the pinnacle of international fame and cultural impact.No Direction Home: Bob Dylan features rare performance footage and interviews with artists and musicians whose lives intertwined with Dylan's during this era, while Dylan himself talks openly and extensively about this critical period in his career in interviews shot exclusively for this film.
The film features rare treasures from Dylan's extensive film, tape and photograph collection, including footage from Murray Lerner's film Festival documenting Dylan's performances at the 1963, 1964 and 1965 Newport Folk Festivals, previously unreleased outtakes from D.A. Pennebaker's famed 1967 documentary Don't Look Back, and interviews with Allen GinsbergPete Seeger, Joan Baez, Maria Muldaur and many others.
 
No Direction Home: Bob Dylan was met with enthusiastic audience reception and universal critical acclaim when it first premiered on PBS, BBC and other prestigious international outlets in the autumn of 2005 and simultaneously released on DVD. Roger Ebert wrote in the Chicago Sun Times"[The film] creates a portrait that is deep, sympathetic, perceptive and yet finally leaves Dylan shrouded in mystery, which is where he properly lives." Rolling Stone's David Fricke hailed it as "the ultimate rock & roll odyssey...masterfully directed by Martin Scorsese, this is an electrifying account of an unprecedented life." Frazier Moore of Associated Press called it, "a film I recommend not only to Dylan devotees and neophytes alike, but also to anyone trying to reconnect with where America was then, and grasp where it is today." The Hollywood Reporter's Glenn Abel wrote that the film was, "as good as it gets in music documentaries," while Variety's Phil Gallo predicted that "some of the footage will startle even the most dedicated Dylanologists."
No Direction Home: Bob Dylan; A Martin Scorsese Picture is a production of Spitfire Pictures, Grey Water Park Production, Thirteen/WNET New York and Sikelia Productions, in co-production with Vulcan Productions, BBC and NHK.
