seven minutes of fun with a rowdy and fun audience at the festival
8 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I've never been to the Woodshock music festival in Texas, but watching the footage from Richard Linklater and Lee Daniel it looks like a lot of fun (though it depends on the word "lot"). It's just a simple stretch of interviews and images capturing the people who camp out, dope up, drink up, sometimes get naked, and jump into a nearby waterfall, whilst listening to musicians like Daniel Johnston. It's nothing very provocative or entrancing, but I liked how it opened with the two shots of just the sun in the horizon surrounded by trees, and the neat pan going across the empty grass and river. Then it cuts right into the mayhem of the festival- not as chaotic or beautiful as Woodstock but pretty 'neat' in its own right- and it's not too far removed from the kinds of characters one might find in the foreground &/or background of Dazed and Confused. Some of the 'psychedelic' moments aren't too complicated either, which is a plus, as there are only a few shots where an image is superimposed over another to create something strange. I liked it.
