Product Description:

Bob Dylan plays the mysterious musician and ex-con Jack Fate in MASKED AND ANONYMOUS, the fictional story of a benefit rock concert in which he is the headliner. Uncle Sweetheart (John Goodman) is the promoter who arranges for Fate's release from prison in order to perform at the show. Meanwhile the sexy producer of the concert (Jessica Lange) leers at Fate with suspicion. When a pushy journalist (Jeff Bridges) and his bohemian girlfriend (Penelope Cruz) join the bunch, along with Fate's most trusted fan (Luke Wilson), what results is a strange mix of moods, characters, and dialogues. Add a Dylan cover band called Simple Twist of Fate that backs up the star as the film makes frequent cuts to performances of full songs, and MASKED AND ANONYMOUS becomes a real rock movie. The film has a foggy storyline about a dictatorial president who is Fate's father, and a setting that depicts a United States that has been transformed into a third-world country full of violence in the streets, political uprisings, and a strong anti-government sentiment. The dialogue is philosophical and nonsensical, creating a strange atmosphere broken only by Dylan's songs. It is the music that carries the film, and this tribute to Dylan and his songwriting talents can't help but win over audiences, especially those comprised of his fans.
