I just read she was the actor that played the mean headmistress of Hogwarts, Delores Ombridge,  that reminded me of Laura Bush!

You know I had heard that too, on NPR the day before I went. OMG, those people are so jaded, I am glad I didn't listen to them.

You know Emile Hirsh's Billy did remind me of Heath, I remember thinking that would have been such a good role for him.

But the construction worker dude, I think played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, man, sizzling.

That is funny you mention Heath. I was watching a documentary about the original woodstock complete with archive film clips.It struck me how good it would have been to see Heath in a film directed by Ang again. I couldn't help but think that it was a project, sufficiently off the wall to arouse  Heath's interest, combining as it does both music and film. I then became quite melancholy, thinking of all the future projects that he would never make.

I saw Taking Woodstock tonight. 

I hate to be the naysayer, but...

While there were some good moments, overall I didn't think it held together very well.  Mostly, because I thought the Elliot character just wasn't interesting enough to carry the film.  Like his mother says, he's a "schnook", and by the end he's still a schnook.  I would like to have seen more of Emile Hirch's character, and Liev Schrieber's Vilma was so underused.  I'm not sure if it's James's script or the source material, but the story was pretty jagged, and, full of clichés.

Call me jaded, but I was pretty disappointed. 

Maybe you have to see it high.

See, that's why I miss the '60s. These days there's such a stigma against moms who trip.

Nothing at all.  Except, they should have called it "Schnookstock".

Interesting! I like Emile Hirsch -- I thought he was really good in Into the Wild as well as Milk. The article forgot to mention that he and Heath appeared together (and were both good, of course) in Lords of Dogtown.




Isn't that weird - that they would write that article, but neglect to mention the movie they were in together, where, in fact, Heath played a mentor and apparently behaved as such for the young fellers in the movie.
