Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Few documentaries have captured a time and place more completely, poignantly, and for that matter, entertainingly."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A funky curio that defines the mood and spirit of its time, but which seems dated in many good and bad ways."
‑ Phil Hall, EDGE Boston
"Everyone is there, from Wavy Gravy to Janis."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Sprawling and overlong, it's nonetheless a valuable time capsule. You get the impression nothing could take the place of being there to witness the legendary event firsthand."
‑ Chuck Rudolph, Matinee Magazine
"Those who do appear are good, with some for the ages."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"If the film isn't the best rock documentary of the best rock concert of all time, it will do until something better comes along."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Wonderful document of its era; music reigns supreme still"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"An important sociological document as much as a massive who's who of rock and folk in 1969."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A seminal docu on any number of levels, musically, sociologically, and historically, Woodstock is a unique chronicle, at once summing up the zeitgeist and signaling the end of an era; for once Oscar voters were right."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"a dazzling reminder of a simpler, younger time and the brief promise it attained."
‑ Pete Croatto, Filmcritic.com
"A fascinating time capsule"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
