Amusing
18 December 2005 | by ylt_traderSee all my reviews

This short film - a documentary of a local Austin rock festival and co-directed with Linklater's friend Lee Daniel - is little more than some hand held footage and short interviews with festival goers, mostly potheads and drunks. It is an interesting document of the times, and perhaps the most interesting aspect for most people is comparing these children of hippies and hippie culture in the light of the original Woodstock. For me, it was nostalgic to see this film - like Linklater, I am a Texan and grew up with kids like these. But I don't see much appeal for other people, it reveals very little about Linklater or his style. Mike Judge (another Texan) no doubt found his inspiration for Beavis and Butthead from these types of concert-goers.
