The Other Side Of The Mirror collects seventeen live Bob Dylan performances at the Newport Folk Festival from 1963-1965, showing his transformation from traditional acoustic folk singer to the leader of a loud rock band. It was a bold move, especially when going in front of the Newport audience of hardcore folk traditionalists, but one that arguably changed the course of rock music forever. Although the DVD is bursting with great performances of historically important material, director Murray Lerner could have given more context on why these were important performances, or captured more behind the scenes activity. To be fair, there are some short interviews with festival-goers, but they don’t add much context. Without that level of depth, The Other Side Of The Mirror plays more like the supplemental materials that would be found on a better Dylan documentary’s bonus disc.
