You can read the article (which is only available in digital form) here, or visit Slate's homepage here.

Here is a preview clip from the highly anticipated Bob Dylan biopic titled "I’m Not There." This is the first preview of the film that has been leaked, and wouldn't you know it was on YouTube.The black-and-white clip depicts the first meeting between a young Dylan (portrayed here by actress Cate Blanchett) and beat poet Allen Ginsberg (played by comedian David Cross). As many of you may or may not know, Blanchett is just one of six actors who will be playing the main role, calling forth their inner Bob Dylans to tell the singer/songwriter’s story from the different perspectives of his life. Richard Gere, Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Marcus Carl Franklin and Ben Whishaw will also play the role. I can't wait til it hits theaters on September 21.
