Woodshock is as tedious as its punny title is nonsensical.
February 22, 2019
You can't fully dismiss Woodshock with its cloying atmosphere and excellent final shot, but that doesn't mean it's close to being a good film.

The term "woodshock" is one used to describe the sense of disorientation someone feels when lost in the woods. At the very least, the Mulleavys commit to crafting a movie where the audience feels lost. Most audiences will. Not always for the better.

I may be the luddite in the room for this reason, but the bottom line is that it ended with a boring chore of a movie to watch.

Despite all the visual bells and whistles throughout Woodshock, ultimately the emperor has no clothes.

Woodshock is a quiet psychological thriller, and it creates more mysteries for us than it resolves.

Woodshock doesn't have a clear-cut narrative or a truly developed plot. But Kirsten Dunst's performance of sadness is often eerily reflective and unshakably gorgeous.

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.

It's not quite the trippy mindbender it wants to be, but if you're in the right mood to surrender yourself to it, Woodshock will probably give you a bit of a buzz.

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.

Woodshock takes viewers on a dreamy trip.
September 30, 2017
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.

While the Mulleavys have a distinct command of tone and texture, the film is more a collage of striking images than any kind of a cogent whole built from them.
September 29, 2017
A baffling and unnecessary third-act coup de théâtre abruptly crashes a comedown from the elaborate high.
September 29, 2017
Kate and Laura Mulleavy ... give everything the hazy feel of a nearly forgotten dream. They have a knack for creating and sustaining a heavy mood, but that mood is overburdened by the questions that surround the narrative.
September 29, 2017
How do good actors end up in bad movies? They follow the leads of filmmakers who have unclear ideas or who make questionable choices. Case in point: Woodshock.
September 28, 2017
Proof positive that skill in designing dresses does not ensure an ability to fashion a good film...so opaque, repetitive and dull that few viewers will have the patience to endure the entire thing.

It's a one-note study of guilt, with ... a story that has little to say about the central character and her predicament.
