** Todd Haynes' ''Film/ImNotThere'' is about Music/BobDylan's artistic career rather than his personal life, so its a film done InTheStyleOf Dylan's music and personae. An earlier version of this is Creator/PaulSchrader's ''Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters'' which is a {{Deconstruction}} of the subject's life and work.

->''"This simple formula rarely fails. Pick a deceased (or soon to be deceased) musician, artist or mathematician, make sure they're the sort of person the New York media could conceivably refer to as brilliant, insert a big name actor ([[MyFriendsAndZoidberg or Gary Busey]]) to play the role; watch movie critics and audiences far and wide go apeshit."''

* {{Expy}}: Some movies depicting a historical figure will stick close to the outline but change the names for legal and artistic reasons. This happened with Film/CitizenKane which was modelled on William Randolph Hearst and other press moguls and featured a number of {{Biopic}} tropes. It also appears in more recent films like Film/VelvetGoldmine (based on Creator/DavidBowie [[note]]Who disliked the script and refused to license music for the production[[/note]]) as well as Creator/ClintEastwood's ''White Hunter, Black Heart'' (about Creator/JohnHuston).
