Woodshock's user reviews

Rolling Stone
7.5

'Woodshock' is both gorgeous and pretentious in equal measures, and it?s hard to reconcile the fact that you don?t get one without the other. it's an exercise in style over substance isn?t even slightly tinged by gender.

"'Woodshock' offers a whole lot to look at, but not all that much to see".

4.0

"With the film?s human element so glassy and its storytelling so thin, however, all this elegant formal trickery soon turns more aggravating than intoxicating ? by its extremely splintered, impressionistic finale, the film skates perilously close to misery chic".

3.0

"There?s a thin, and very jagged, line between the radical mosaic approach to editing and narrative of a film like Shane Carruth?s Upstream Color and the impressionistic jigsaw vagueness of Woodshock, which simply seems reluctant to commit itself to mere coherence, as if that simply were too unchic".

5.0

The Mulleavys have what it takes to continue in film if they decide to pursue this path, with a firm, confident hold on light, texture, color, mood, sound, and physical space. So if 'Woodshock' is, ultimately, unsatisfying, it?s not because they haven?t put in the time to immerse you in their obsessions.

4.0

"The main problem is that the directors often struggle to assign meaning to their images that helps advance either the narrative or illuminate the emotional state of their main character".

3.0

Unlike their spring 2018 fashion collection, Kate and Laura Mulleavy?s first foray into moviemaking, ?Woodshock,? is depressingly dull and terminally inarticulate.
