After working with filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker on the film Don’t Look Back, Bob Dylan decided to make another movie. Though he would still be the subject, Dylan wanted to direct the film with Pennebaker as the cinematographer. Nearly immediately, Pennebaker faced problems with the shoot. He said he essentially ran into a wall with Dylan after he got into a motorcycle accident. Pennebaker said Dylan became very difficult to work with.
