So I’ve done the scientific testing necessary – attempting to appreciate the new Taking Woodstock poster both sober and reeling from an acid trip – and I have to admit that the poster looks far more beautiful (and talks occasionally) when you are on LSD.
Alright, to be honest I didn’t so much drop acid as I snorted the center out of a Cadbury Egg, but I swear to God that the poster talked to me.
Now, since I don’t care to dictate what you put into your body or don’t put into your body, I’ll leave it up to you as to what substances you’d like to alter your existence with before checking out this bad boy. Stone sober works well, too:
The flick is from director Ang Lee and stars Demetri Martin as Elliot Tiber, who was the figure who helped get the concert permit to allow the biggest cultural event of the 1960s to take place. It also features a fantastic cast of Emile Hirsch, Liev Schreiber, Imedla Staunton, Eugene Levy, Paul Dano, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Kelli Garner (who played Margo in Lars and the Real Girl). I’m pretty much down for anything that’s set in the 1960s or about Woodstock in the first place. Why? Because the soundtrack is guaranteed to be phenomenal.
Plus, after meeting Wavy Gravy, I feel it’s my karmic duty to spread the free love as much as I can.
As we all might have guessed, Rob Hunter will probably hate all over this movie because he lives in San Francisco and gets stuck behind Wavy Gravy’s van in traffic. Bitterness is an ugly cologne, Hunter.
The poster is via Rolling Stone which has a great write up on Woodstock.
What do you think? Great poster right?
