Expert Review Taking Woodstock - DVD Review
By: Jason McKiernan DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/4/2009 9:42 PM
Ang Lee is one of the most nuanced, attentive, and versatile of all working directors. He is capable of molding any material -- be it human drama, kung fu epic, or even comic book adaptation -- to his unique and delicate sensibility. It's strange, then, that Lee's own artistic instincts fail him in Taking Woodstock, which plays like a wooden, straightforward soap opera that is far too well-meaning for its own good. The movie adopts a hippie attitude without the added psychedelic benefit of hippie drugs. The end result of Lee's long-awaited Woodstock movie is not much of a "Woodstock movie" at all but is rather another entry into the "Lost boy finds himself" the full review

Professional Reviews

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

"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

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
