Famed director Martin Scorsese is turning his lens on one of the most storied tours in rock history, Bob Dylan's 1975 "Rolling Thunder Revue," and the official trailer for the upcoming Netflix documentary is here.
Scorsese, best known for helming towering cinematic achievements like Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Casino and The Wolf of Wall Street, is no stranger to crafting classic rock docs.
After all, he's previously directed George Harrison: Living in the Material World, Shine a Light about the Rolling Stones, No Direction Home: Bob Dylan and The Last Waltz, in which Dylan performed at a farewell show with his former group The Band.
In the first trailer for the Netflix doc, we see a rare on-camera interview with Dylan along with stunning footage of the tour itself. Netflix describes the movie here:
Scorsese captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975, and the joyous music that Bob Dylan performed that fall. Master filmmaker Martin Scorsese creates a one-of-a-kind movie experience: part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream.
Featuring Joan Baez, Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, Sam Shepard, Allen Ginsberg, and Bob Dylan giving his first on-camera interview in over a decade. The film goes beyond mere reclamation of Dylan’s extraordinary music—it’s a roadmap into the wild country of artistic self-reinvention.
Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese drops on Netflix June 12.
