Woodstock – 3 Days of Peace & Music

PhotobucketPhotobucketSprawling, historically significant documentary about the concert that occurred on Max Yasgur’s farm at Bethel, New York in August 1969. This chronicle does more to explain the 60s counterculture than perhaps any other record. Using split-screen techniques, director Michael Wadleigh, shows us performances, mixed with interviews of both the artists and attendees. The many logistical problems that occurred in putting on this show are ignored in favor of presenting an idyllic view of “3 Days of Peace & Music”. Not particularly honest, but consistently entertaining, nonetheless.
