If you say no to anything, say no to Woodshock.

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.

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.

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.

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.
September 28, 2017
It's a one-note study of guilt, with ... a story that has little to say about the central character and her predicament.
September 28, 2017
The film's purposely fragmented assembly never allows for Dunst's character to evolve into something tangible
September 28, 2017
Orbiting her like vague moons are three young men-her concerned husband, her cagey boss at the dispensary, and an adenoidal young admirer-most of whom seemed as puzzled by the situation as I was.
September 28, 2017
There's daring in the film's slow unfurling. The problem, though, isn't one of patience but of payoff. "Woodshock" is beautiful but it's all chassis, a root-dead tree that crumbles beneath the ax.
September 28, 2017
The Mulleaveys know how to make pretty, pointed pictures, but they haven't yet figured out what to do with them.
