Lee delivers an entertaining light comedy about a real-life person who somewhat inadvertently helped the whole iconic concert to take place.
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...
Rating: 1/4 -- Taking Woodstock simply doesn't capture the spirit of a very spirited time. Full Review
“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.”
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.
Taking Woodstock is entertaining, funny but also very slight film. Unlike the real Woodstock, it won't change lives or burn in the memory.

Rating: 2.5/5 -- At no point did I feel like I was at Woodstock and surely that was the whole point. Full Review
Ang Lee (BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN) directs this film about the beginnings of the epic and legendary 1969 Woodstock Festival, which took place in Bethel, New York.
