    After studying the documentary film at university I've come to the conclusion this is the pinnacle of what factual filmmaking is all about.

    Woodstock was, and still is, the most important moment in American culture. It changed the way the American public precived a massive portion of their society, and helped the counter culture grow beyond the bounds of what many thought was possible.

    Hilarious almost 100% of the time. I so hope they had as much fun making this as I did watching it.

    On paper it's a hokey, contrived mess of a 50s horror B-movie. Within the first 10 minutes if you aren't laughing your dick off then maybe jet-black humor just isn't for you, because damn, this reaches Strangelove levels of stupid, absurdist satire...but that's what makes it so great.

    Masterpiece.

    The social-political and ethical metaphors and allegories are some of the stronger more fleshed out in a film chocked full of deep meanings and harsh realities of facing the horror of living in a country divided in two.

    Stella filmmaking and a film that can be watched 20+ times makes this an absolute classic.

    A film you can talk about for longer than the running length.

    Masterpiece.

    Tomb Raider

    ★★

    The only reason this got more than one star is because you get to listen to Alicia Vikander screaming and moaning for like 70 minutes.
