If you've just baked some cookies and have a box of wine stashed somewhere, you are ready for this distinctive and druggy work of overwhelming beauty.

Woodshock is as tedious as its punny title is nonsensical.

Woodshock is not afraid to be boring, or to seem pointless, repetitive, and overlong. There is little dialogue; the film could play as gallery art.

Visuals should always service the story, which is why Tom Ford (another fashion designer turned director) has found success, and that's the lesson that the Mulleavy's should take away from their misfire of a feature debut

The answer to whether smoking kills lies beneath the surface of this abstract but ultimately empty-plotted first feature from sisters Kate and Laura Mulleavy, better known for having created the designer label Rodarte.

It's more fever dream than thriller, but permafry has never looked prettier.

The directors of Woodshock are Kate and Laura Mulleavy, the sibling founders of the Rodarte brand. They clearly have an eye for fashion. As filmmakers, they clearly have an eye for fashion.
