Entertainment Reviews:

Hollywood Reporter - 05/16/2009
"Lee delivers an entertaining light comedy about a real-life person who somewhat inadvertently helped the whole iconic concert to take place."
Box Office - 05/18/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "[A] gentle, anecdotal comedy that has oodles of nostalgic charm, as the locals of the Catskills find themselves swept up in an event whose transformative power changed a generation."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/26/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "This is a comedy with some sweet interludes....TAKING WOODSTOCK has the freshness of something being created, not remembered."
Los Angeles Times - 08/26/2009
"[A] meticulously rendered and achingly authentic portrait of a time and a place....The filmmaker has an acutely sensitive eye for family and tradition..."
Movieline - 08/27/2009
"It's as adventurous a film as Lee has ever made, utilizing split-screens, zoom lenses, kinetic slides in the mud, astonishingly long DeMillian takes featuring hundreds of stalled cars and a cast of thousands..."
Entertainment Weekly - 09/04/2009
"Lee captures the fractious, joyful, monstrously evolving mass it all was." -- Grade: B-
Washington Post - 08/28/2009
“Lee makes a series of fascinating choices in TAKING WOODSTOCK, starting with the decision not to film Woodstock, the concert....He's managed to make a moving that, for all its sweetness, is surprisingly subversive.”
Uncut - 11/02/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "Lee shows the experience from the outskirts...we see Woodstock as most attendees saw it: down among the mud and chaos...'
