About the Movie
"Woodstock," the concert, gave voice to the spirit of a generation, offering the world a three-day microcosm of the turbulent '60s, set to the music of the era's greatest rock performers. "Woodstock," the film, captures it all, now with more than 40 minutes of added material and masterfully remixed sound. This Academy Award-winner for Best Documentary Feature shows in spectacular detail how and why the legendary "Summer of Love" festival was an historical event, and now features additional interviews, memorable footage and, of course, more of the music that brought this "happening" together. The Hollywood Reporter calls this "inspiring and dramatic... With the terrific new sound, gorgeous new prints and overall high quality of filmmaking, the entire film feels as fresh and vital as when it first burst on the scene in 1970." This ground-breaking documentary also offered an early career boost to a young Martin Scorsese ("GoodFellas," "The Aviator"), who served as an editor and assistant director. In 1996, the film was inducted into the Library of Congress National Film Registry.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely, poignantly, and for that matter, entertainingly.
It's still the music
I was 17 and this was going to be a great end of high school concert. It was more than that. Too much has been made of the cultural significance of the event. It was a GREAT concert. Changed my life. The documentary gets it right: this was all about the music.
This movie is a wild ride. Especially if you just kick back for the long haul and let it wash over you. A true epic film about 3 magical days in New York many years ago. Some of the best music you'll ever hear performed, amazing photography, and a lot of crazy hippie moments. Totally worth your worth time if your into the music scene past or present.
Welcome to Woodstock Nation
I was born years after Woodstock happened on a upstate New York farm and then turned into music history, but this documentary brings it alive to those flower children born a generation too late. This was how music was, in its greatest form. It's a shame music no longer sounds like this- us of the 2000s could really use someone with the guitar genius of Jimi Hendrix or the vocals of a Janis Joplin, to name a few of the legends that performed here. Woodstock was THE concert, and to me, nothing has and nothing will ever compare to it.
