Directed by Beverly Blanchette, with choreography by Garry Q. Lewis. HAP ERSTEIN songwnting Mr-Tambourine Man, Knock in' On Heaven's Door) has done as much for other artists as it has for himself, and yet Dylan is mocked as often as he is lauded, mostly for his ability to make MOVIES We know, you get so much of Bill Clinton's travails for free on the nightly news, why should you pay to see Primary Colors, a thinly veiled movie about his first race for the presidency? Because screenwriter Elaine May and director Mike Nichols have made a surprisingly good movie from Joe ("Anonymous") Klein's cheeky political roman a clef about philandering but caring Southern governor Jack Stanton (John Travolta in a pitch-perfect impersonation). The movie begins with a satirical edge, sucking us in with some clever comic writing, then turns darker as it asks to be taken seriously. A loudmouthed strategist, brilliantly played by Kathy Bates, suddenly becomes the conscience of the campaign and of the movie, as she challenges Stanton on the use of smear tactics. Add to the list of first-rate performances Emma Thompson as a wily, hot-tempered Hillary stand-in, Billy Bob Thornton as a good oT boy campaign manager (yup, James Car-ville) and Larry Hagman as a wizened old political adversary. HAP ERSTEIN ALBUMS Turn, Turn, Turn. If I Had A Hammer. The Water is Wide. We Shall Overcome. When the critics talk about the great pillars of American music, why do they rarely mention Pete Seeger? I le's just as important as Irving Berlin, Jelly Roll Morton, George Gershwin and Woody Guthrie. A Dylan mumbling sound musical.
