Woodstock

Lists: None yet

Brief Synopsis: "An intimate look at the Woodstock Music & Art Festival held in Bethel, NY in 1969, from preparation through cleanup, with historic access to insiders, blistering concert footage, and portraits of the concertgoers; negative and positive aspects are shown, from drug use by performers to naked fans sliding in the mud, from the collapse of the fences by the unexpected hordes to the surreal arrival of National Guard helicopters with food and medical assistance for the impromptu city of 500,000."

Lisa Marie Bowman80 - Occasionally, the film is an endurance test but it's still an important record of the time in which it was made.
