“I DON’T NEED TIME MAGAZINE,” Bob Dylan ranted in the movie “Don’t Look Back.” The TIME reporter was Horace Freeland Judson, who died last Friday at the age of 80. We watched “Don’t Look Back” about a year ago, and I blogged back then about the Dylan/Judson confrontation. (“The reporter, whose bland doughiness makes a funny contrast to Dylan’s intensity, might look as though he doesn’t know what is happening here, but I got to thinking that the gears in that head were turning, and he was judging and gathering material.”)
