I posted this in the random thughts thread a few days ago, but here ya go.
"My girlfriend and I went and saw "Taking Woodstock" this afternoon. I was a little worried at first because I'm not really a big Demetri Martin fan, but it was actually pretty good. Woodstock was such a big concept to try and faithfully tackle in 2 hours, but Ang Lee did a terrific job. Making it less about the festival itself and more about the behind-the-scenes aspect made it seem much more personal, in my opinion. Emile Hirsch did a fantastic job portraying a troubled Vietnam vet too. He has really become an amazing actor over the last few years. Also, while it's been several years since I've done anything like it, the van "trip" scene with Paul Dano was absolutely the best cinematic interpretation of a psychedelic experience I have ever seen. I strongly recommend this one. "
Out on video now, so I watched it last night. It made me that much more excited / ready for Bonnaroo! It's an interesting movie, definitely not my favorite Ang Lee film (I have a hard time with the split screen concept), but the actors did a great job.
