About the Movie
THE WOODS follows a group of young Americans who, disillusioned by the world's many problems, move to the wilds of the Pacific Northwest with hopes of creating their own utopian society. Despite their idealistic goals of revolution, the group comes ill prepared for their new life, bringing a wide assortment of consumer electronics, recreational vehicles and snack foods. After catastrophic events in the outside world sever their electricity and wifi, and their leader's once-inspiring rhetoric fails to hold them together, the group is forced to find a way to live in harmony with the natural world.
Loved this film
I saw this film at Sundance '11 and thought it was awesome. Totally original idea, gorgeously shot, great performances, awesome art direction. Great satire of contemporary youth culture. Definitely worth checking out.
"The only Sundance (2011) film about cults that could actually have life as a cult film, The Woods has the greatest comic insight into why our current culture might inspire a search for meaning in the first place." - Karina Longworth, The Village Voice
If Celluloid Smoked
Strangest bit of cinematic hypnosis I've ever encountered. It shouldn't be watchable, and yet somehow it's engaging and affecting.
