In the tradition of "Woodstock".
5 July 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Perhaps, because the Ausitn music festival, "Woodshock" obviously lifted their name from "Woodstock", young filmmaker Richard Linklater, decided to shoot this documentary short film in the same style as that acclaimed documentary from which it borrows it's name.

This short appears on the "Slacker" DVD, and like that disc's other bonus film - the feature length, "It's Impossible to Know How to Plow By Reading Books" - it's a chance to see a young talented filmmaker trying to figure out how to make movies.

The film shows that Rick does understand how to shoot stylistically - even if he is only imitating "Woodstock". But that in later years, Rick would decide to shoot his films in a more subtle style, where dialog takes precedence over visuals.
