Actors: Bob Dylan, John Goodman, Jeff Bridges

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Masked and Anonymous

Jack Fate (Bob Dylan), a once legendary country singer, is released from prison to perform a benefit concert in a futuristic bombed-out Third World America which is under revolutionary seige. Uncle Sugar (John Goodman), a scheming manager under pressure from black revolutionaries for money, encourages vicious journalist Jeff Bridges to interview Fate to publicize the event. However, Fate hates journalists because of their lies and manipulation. Against the backdrop of urban warfare and blood in the streets, Fate and his band (Dylan's actual touring group) deliver a classic set of Dylan songs, including hits from his grammy winning album, "Time Out of Mind," as well as classics such as "Blowing in the Wind."
