One of the best rock documentaries ever made. This film captures every nuance of the famous event - from naked hippies to protesters to drugs to the fantastic musical performances. It's an awesome opportunity to see some of the greatest voices of 60's music on stage together, unedited. Highly recommended for any music lover.

Epic Documentary of an Epic Event

Having just watched the new extended cut in Blu-Ray, I must say that besides actually attending Woodstock, it felt like I could have been there. The performances are stunning (Hendrix, Joplin, The Who, Santana, Country Joe - the list goes on) and the intimate look at various people - from a port-o-san cleaner to uninhibited skinny dippers, is both amusing and, yes, even thought-provoking.

There will never be another event like Woodstock. It has tried to be emulated and failed (for a comparison, watch Woodstock then watch Gimme Shelter) - this was truly a once-in-a-lifetime happening. Even though there was a lot of chaos, drugs, rain, mud, lack of food and medical staff - the 500,000 plus crowd never got out of hand. And luckily there was a film crew there to document it all - 120 hours...

Rating of
3.5/4
