Woodstock Review


Good
The appeal of Woodstock isn't as a concert film, though there are some great performances that hold up 40 years later. The film is a historical document, representing the zenith of the peace and love movement of the 1960s, and music's integral role in that equation. If you were born in the '70s or '80s, your take on the 1960s might consist of news clips and cultural caricatures. Director Michael Wadleigh sets the record straight.

The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live at the Newport Folk Festival Review


Essential
Lerner, utilizing footage shot for his folk festival documentaries, presents Dylan in context with full performances from each of his festival appearances in 1963 to 65, in one of the great rock performance films, The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan Live at the Newport Folk Festival, 1963-65.

Lerner's film is a no-frills document of Dylan in full performance, chronicling a tale of an artist growing up and away from his folk base, leaving the idealistic folkies in the dust. It also charts an odyssey from songs of innocence to songs of experience.
