Angry.
16 June 2001 | by Jod-zSee all my reviews

I walked out of this documentary angry (at the end) - extremely angry in fact.

The 1969 footage was used as a way to compare and contrast the behaviour of the audience at the later show's (94 & 99.).

The inclusion of the '99 footage was almost as an afterthought and most of the film was dedicated to the financial and political machinations in setting up the 94 Festival - with a huge set of statistics being quoted.

The songs that were used from the later festivals were picked for their violent content - the only footage used that wasn't of this nature was Sheryl Crow - when the audience were asking her to flash them and Offspring telling the guys in the audience not to grope the women that were crowd surfing(and the women in the audience to grope the guys.

The riots of '99 were shown - however, little of the aftermath or reports of violence (specifically against the women) was even referred to.

And who the hell cares what Rosie Perez thinks about the youth of today.

Thanks for your distorted view of what happened.

The highlight of the piece was the girl walking us through the Vendor tent where they were selling everything ...her commentary was the highlight of an otherwise ordinary documentary.
