Editors Note
Note Ang Lee (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) directs this film about the beginnings of the epic and legendary 1969 Woodstock Festival, which took place in Bethel, New York.
Hollywood Reporter "Lee delivers an entertaining light comedy about a real-life person who somewhat inadvertently helped the whole iconic concert to take place." 05/16/2009
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] gentle, anecdotal comedy that has oodles of nostalgic charm, as the locals of the Catskills find themselves swept up in an event whose transformative power changed a generation." 05/18/2009
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "This is a comedy with some sweet interludes....TAKING WOODSTOCK has the freshness of something being created, not remembered." 08/26/2009
Los Angeles Times "[A] meticulously rendered and achingly authentic portrait of a time and a place....The filmmaker has an acutely sensitive eye for family and tradition..." 08/26/2009
Movieline "It's as adventurous a film as Lee has ever made, utilizing split-screens, zoom lenses, kinetic slides in the mud, astonishingly long DeMillian takes featuring hundreds of stalled cars and a cast of thousands..." 08/27/2009
Entertainment Weekly "Lee captures the fractious, joyful, monstrously evolving mass it all was." -- Grade: B- 09/04/2009
Washington Post ?Lee makes a series of fascinating choices in TAKING WOODSTOCK, starting with the decision not to film Woodstock, the concert....He?s managed to make a moving that, for all its sweetness, is surprisingly subversive.? 08/28/2009
Uncut 4 stars out of 5 -- "Lee shows the experience from the outskirts...we see Woodstock as most attendees saw it: down among the mud and chaos...' 11/02/2009
