  • There is so much great footage, it could have been done just the other week, because everyone looks exactly the same. Every festival today has some sort of debt to Woodstock in some way.

  • It does bring a freshness to a story that we've heard a million times.

    October 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Some optimism is required to allow for the possibility that the chaos of Woodstock offered a template for anything, but, if you inhale deeply, the film just about achieves this microcosmic ambition.

    August 19, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This film offers a moving remembrance of the people, music, and extraordinary circumstances that aligned to produce a cultural touchstone.

    May 31, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Goodman never lets the music breathe, even slapping narration over Hendrix's masterful version of the national anthem, one of the great political statements in rock history.

    May 30, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Uses the perspective of nearly 50 years' hindsight to demonstrate anew how the festival was both a mess and a miracle, and implicitly argues that it was a good deal more miracle than mess.
