The Saint John Free Public Library's Movie Club showed WOODSTOCK in the summer of 2012 as part of its Summer Music Movie Series in two parts: the first on Thursday, August 16/12 & the second on Saturday, September 29/12
Questions for further discussion: - Roger Ebert, in his reviews of the film, estimates that the mix of music to the activities of the massive audience is about 60-40. Was that a good mix for you, or were you hoping for more music? Or is the event the thing? - The festival at peak attendance was one of the largest cities in New York State, and existed as such largely without violent outbursts. For some, it represents the best of 1960s idealism made real; for others, the beginning of the end of those ideals; for still others, an overhyped morass of licentiousness, deprivation & misery. How do you feel about Woodstock as a culture-changing event? - Much has been made of the filmmaking techniques used to bring the festival to the screen, especially its use of split-screens, editing which takes the back & forth in time according to the filmmakers’ wishes, camerawork which always seems to place the viewer in the thick of things, and the well-recorded & -synchronized sound. Do these tricks & effects distract you from the movie’s actual content, or do they make it more accessible? - And, oh yeah, the music. Many of the acts which appeared at the festival are hard to argue against, but not all of them appear in the film. Which are your favourite performances? Which acts do you wish we got more of? Any acts omitted entirely which you would have liked to see (visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woodstock#Performing_artists for a list of performers; a list of some of the stars which turned Woodstock down follows it)? Watch the trailer for the 40th anniversary Blu-Ray edition of the movie at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imQ4eZUA99Q
