My Degeneration Or, The revolution WILL be televised (and marketed)
27 October 2001 | by SchlockmeisterSee all my reviews

An interesting look at the degeneration of the Woodstock festival. All three festivals are shown and contrasted. From the supposedly peaceful motives of the 1969 show to the commercialism of the other shows and also the out and out violence of the last one. I guess what got to me more than anything is the extreme self-conciousness of the subsequent shows, constant references to "Aren't we cool?" and "Oooo, this is so historic." and attempting to live out the early concert by feeling that you have to roll in mud and dress like hippies, well, just because. It comes across very shallow and hollow as I am sure it was, as the audience got quickly bored and resorted to their reptilian minds by committing acts of destruction and violence. I am sure in their minds these were acts of "revolution". The leaders of the festival in later years seem to just be in a state of denial, walking around with silly grins. The documentary shows how much music has changed, lyrics have gone from changing the world to now where images of violence and hate spew forth from performers who are well protected from the repercussions of their incitements. Recommended if the subject holds some interest for you.
