This documentary takes a look at the three Woodstock music festivals (1969, 1994 and 1999) and compares and contrasts them with one another. Issue is taken with whether or not the revival festivals were for money or for peace and love. Many viewpoints and angles are explored--giving a nice, well rounded presentation.
The editing is very good and includes some very smart snippets. These include: a little girl's assessment of the necessity of a video game vending stand, a landowner trying to renegotiate a deal when he sees there is more money to be gotten, people flopping around in the mud and having a good time, some great concert footage and miscellaneous insightful comments from various people.
To give a cohesive shape to My Generation, all the various viewpoints are delicately stitched together, giving the film a nice ebb and flow feeling. It does seem a bit long at times, but overall I'd say it's a must for anyone who has any thoughts on Woodstock or the state of today's youth.
