• Our new release of Dont Look Back, D. A. Pennebaker's groundbreaking behind-the-scenes portrait of Bob Dylan and his famed 1965 tour, is out tomorrow on DVD and Blu-ray and features a new interview with celebrated artist Patti Smith, a lifelong admirer of Dylan's. Over the course of the conversation, Smith discusses everything from the ways Dylan influenced her as a teenager to where he fits within a lineage that stretches from Mozart to punk rock. Above, she explains how finding Bob Dylan was like discovering a modern-day Arthur Rimbaud.

    Love PATTI SMITH. Regarding the film, is there some reason Pennebaker chose to omit the apostrophe in Don't from the title?

      Grammatical cutbacks. Same reason that forced e.e. cummings to stop using capital letters.
