The only thing that's really lacking in this film -- which is really frustrating coming from such a meticulous director as Ang Lee -- is the lack of emotionality from the Elliot character. It felt like his homosexuality was an unexplored plotline in an otherwise fantastic story about the thin line between poverty and just making due, self-discovery, and cultural discovery. Beautifully shot and well-acted.
A good, if sometimes slow (both in a good way and not) retelling of Woodstock from one of the key components of the festival. I just wish there was more about the actual music, but I can understand that financially that would be very very difficult. Oh, and it features one of the best drug trips that I've ever seen in a film.
