Is Masked and Anonymous a

Is Masked and Anonymous a via negativa examination of the world? The New York Times seems to imply such.

It’s gotten plenty of funky reviews, but we’ll see if it’s any good.

Salon.com has perhaps the most curious analysis (possible spoilers?):

Through it all, Dylan’s Jack Fate wanders like a grizzled Candide. The great joke of “Masked & Anonymous” is that for once, everything Dylan says is clear and comprehensible; it’s everyone else around him who’s mad.

If there’s one upon which all the review agree, however, it’s that the musical performances are stunning.
