While thousands of Fort Myers real estate owners have rushed to the movie theater to see Martin Scorsese’s critically acclaimed Silence, others prefer to stay home and see his documentary Bob Dylan: No Direction Home.

Based on the singer’s best-selling biography, Chronicles: Volume I, viewers are educated on Dylan’s sensational and permanent influence on the culture for the last forty years via home movies mixed with concert footage and present-day interviews.
Scorsese captures the setting for Fort Myers luxury homeowners by portraying American culture and the 1950’s popular artists. Without regard to any chronologic timeline, the film portrays the young Bobby Zimmerman, a Jewish boy from Minnesota venturing to Greenwich Village. He borrowed his stage name from the 1940’s poet Dylan Thomas. The Welsh surrealist wrote some of the most passionate and eloquent verses in modern literature, such as “Before I Knocked.”
Among Dylan’s early inspirations were two high school girls, Hank Williams and folksinger Woody Guthrie, an innovative musician in the 1940s. Guthrie’s numerous folk songs, as “Dust Bowl Blues” and the language that he used made radical statements about American society. “You could listen to his songs and actually learn how to live,” Dylan explains in the film. “That’s what I want to sing.”
Scrambling to distinguish himself in 1961’s Big Apple, folks with homes for sale in Fort Myers see Dylan realize that songwriting was his one talent that could set him on his own plane. The bohemian was 20-years-old when he got signed with Columbia Records in New York City, New York. Within a mere three months, his mind-blitzing verses brought poetry into mainstream music. Dylan’s words have been heard and felt for roughly 50 years, as the legend has influenced almost all popular artists, from the Beatles and the Stones to Edie Brickell and U2.
Dylan utilized all of the elements that he’d ever known to make wide, sweeping assessments about the world. His revolutionary lyrics conveyed a feeling that captured the essence of the time period. By 1969, Dylan’s affect played the key role in transforming both the State’s and England’s popular music into poetic psychedelia. “I was in a certain arena artistically that no one else had ever been in before, ever,” he explains in the film.
People with Fort Myers homes for sale feel that the movie spends entirely too much portraying the pioneer’s settings, such as Minnesota’s environment or Greenwich Village in the 1950s. While showing all sides of Dylan’s career, including some negative criticism from the early ‘60s, the material grows redundant and drags out for almost four hours.
“I had ambitions to set out and find… this home that I left a while back, and couldn’t remember exactly where it was but I was on my way there,” Dylan explains. “I was born very far from where I was supposed to be, and so I am on my way home.”
