Falls Short of Expectations
12 March 2006 | by youngurbanSee all my reviews

I went to one of the "one night only" showings of this film and boy was I disappointed. If you are looking for a sterile, unappealing documentary, check this out. I attended the 2004 and 2005 festival and this is nothing like that experience. The only redeeming parts of this film are the clips of a couple of good bands they included in the final cut. This film spent too much time dealing with stoned hippies trying to set up tents and not enough time with the bands that made the festival enjoyable. Overall this festival is nothing like this film, mainly because as the festival changes year to year, this film makes it all seem as though it is all one year, one event. I think when Goldenvoice decided to make a documentary they had a great idea, but I think they should have thought more carefully about the filmmaker who would be in charge. If you went to the festival,you should see this movie just for the few redeeming scenes and the nostalgia-you will appreciate it. If you did not attend the festival, do not waste your time with this "film" you will not enjoy it, and you will get the wrong impression of the festival.
