Did I'M NOT THERE open and close in the same week? Didn't it just open on the 21st? I can't find it anywhere?
Is this some kind of sick joke?

A friend of mine went to see it - paid $12 and everything - and walked out an hour in. She said she was so bored she couldn't stomach sitting through the rest of it.
Could it be some kind of awards-qualifying thing? We're into BAFTA season here in the UK, with the Oscars following close behind.
I'm Not There is being released in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal this Friday. There were some advance showings on the 21st, which is probably what you saw.
I saw it at TIFF expecting very little, and liked it very much. Think of it as a couple of hours of beautiful cinematography with a Bob Dylan score. And, oh yeah, the best actress in the world...
I saw it in LA last week, and I gotta tell ya, it's not very good. It's like a long Inarritu film, but with no real story or arc or sense of movement. The problem with having six Dylans representing who he was at different parts of his life is that there's no change or development in any of the characters (because then they'd become the next one). The premise was interesting but the product is a bunch of excellent actors killing time in homages to other movies.
