Last night I had this flash of motivation and planned out a full 6 movies to see today. That didn't happen. Instead, I braved the horrendous parking to come downtown for two movies and then it's quits.
First was this classic seminal rock doc about what's maybe the first music festival and certainly the first music festival doc. I'd never seen it all the way through before so I figured if I'm ever going to see it I should see it here at the Paramount sitting down front, especially since I'd heard it was a new print.
I'm really glad I did. By this point i'm pretty much exhausted and burned out on watching movies all day, so the music in this film tapped directly into my subconcious. It was really great. Especially Joplin's performance here. unbelievable. I'm really happy I saw this.
