The Most Notable Movie Coming To Netflix This Week
“Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese” | June 12
Premise: A documentary and concert film focused on Bob Dylan’s mid-’70s concert tour, the Rolling Thunder Revue. The tour eschewed large venues to play in more intimate settings. This led to the concert tour losing money but allowed Dylan to embrace his stranger side despite the trappings of stardom.
Sum-Up: This serves as a teaser for Netflix’s partnership with Martin Scorsese, as the famed director will debut the potential awards contender “The Irishman” later this year. Scorsese clearly has a ton of love for Dylan given that “Rolling Thunder Revue” will be his second documentary about the singer-songwriter.
Heads-Up: Like most Scorsese movies, this has a long runtime. “Rolling Thunder Revue” lasts 2 hours, 22 minutes, which may be a bit too lengthy for anyone but die-hard Dylan fans.

- “Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet”
- “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese” (Netflix Film)
