Bob Dylan’s Blood On The Tracks was a significant release for several reasons: it was one of his best-selling studio albums ever, it was his first after returning to Columbia Records, and it is still hailed as his most autobiographical and deeply personal release.
Now, the 1975 LP is being transformed into a feature-length film by Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino.
In a new profile in The New Yorker, Guadagnino describes the Blood On The Tracks screenplay as a “multiyear story” spanning through the 1970s and following the album’s “central themes.”
“When they’re repressing, we dramatize the repression, and what that does to them,” LaGravenese says of the characters in Blood On The Tracks. “And we dramatize what happens when you let your passions take over too much.”
