The film also contains the last known footage of Phil Ochs, who is shown preparing to take the stage at Folk City in October 1975; he committed suicide six months later. Dylan discovered Rivera walking the streets of New York and asked her to join his band on the spot. Later, the film progresses onto a scene involving a contemporary Iroquois Indian town hall gathering. Some say that Dylan's musical performances make this film passable, but even here, they were very poorly filmed with bad sound. Similarities between the two films include the use of whiteface Dylan , the recurring flower, the woman in white Baez , the on-stage and backstage scenes, and the dialogue of both films' climactic scenes.
. . For a Dylan fan it is a masterpiece. Joan Baez is also the Woman in White — if only because she wears white in the movie. A group of street preachers hector indifferent New Yorkers about the alleged end of the world. Most of the performers are musicians or members of Dylan's inner circle; the only professional actors in the cast are Sam Shepard, Harry Dean Stanton, Helena Kallianiotes, and Ronee Blakley.

The film includes footage of a visit to the grave of Jack Kerouac, an Allen Ginsberg poetry reading and various friends and acquaintances, namely David Blue playing pinball by a swimming pool , discussing experiences on the road. But because of this and because of the way the movie is intentionally expressed as a non-story story, i didn't know what was going, if there actually was anything going, it was like being with some people you don't know that well and just grabbing what you can of what's going on, that's how it felt to me.

This version was shown in more theaters than the original director's cut. Some language is not for the family hour.
The story then flashes between numerous scenes and concludes with Renaldo lying on stage thinking only to switch over to people watching a lounge singer as the credits roll. The film also features an appearance from another ill-fated musician, David Blue, who gives some insight into the 1960s New York City folk music scene while playing an extended game of pinball. Tell me what will you do when Jesus comes? Dylan released a live album, Hard Rain, involving the Rolling Thunder Revue musicians. In the course of the film, folk singer David Blue plays pinball alongside a swimming pool huh? Tell me what will you do when Jesus comes?
