CONTEST – I'm Not There Movie Passes

So, yes – I already ran a contest not too long ago for the Bob Dylan biopic I’m Not There where I gave away a couple copies of the soundtrack (winners – your prizes went out this week, sorry for the delay) but, as it happens, I’ve got more stuff to dole out.

The film opens in Canada this Friday and courtesy of Sony BMG Canada, I’ve got a prize pack consisting of a copy of the soundtrack and a pair of passes to see the film at any Cineplex or Alliance Atlantis theatre in Canada for the length of its run (from Mondays to Thursdays, not good on weekends. I know, I know). Mind you, considering the dismal box office it did when it opened in limited release in the US last weekend, that run might not be very long… I don’t take this to be a reflection on the film itself – reviews are quite decent – just the difficulty in selling a film of this ilk to the great unwashed general populace.

But hey, if you think you’ll be abe to suspend disbelief long enough to not get up in the middle of the film and point out that Bob Dylan was not, and never has been, a little black boy or a skinny white woman, then come on and enter. Just email me at contests AT with “I want to see I’m Not There” in the subject line and your full mailing address in the body. And make sure that you have a theatre in your town that’s actually showing the film, please. I’ll want to get these in the mail on Saturday so that whoever wins will (hopefully) get them in time to use them next week or the week after, assuming the film hangs around that long, so contest closes tomorrow (Friday) at midnight. Update: Contest closed, congrats to Sasha who won the CD and passes.

So enter and in the meantime, read up with some interviews with director Todd Haynes, courtesy of The Telegraph, Exclaim!, The Toronto Star and eye.

    Aw man, I was too late to enter the contest, but that’s ok because I already own the CD. I just haven’t gotten a chance to see the film yet. I really do LOVE the CD though. My favorite is the Cat Power track.
