I don't know how much different it will be from the HBO documentary but I'll watch it.

Yeah I can't imagine there's much more to say that wasn't covered in the HBO Documentary.
Also it's called Trainwreck : Woodstock 99

A lot of it is the same, some more current interviews with participants, musicians, security people, the photographer (who was also at the '69 show) and her daughter who attended.

There is a note at the end that Michael Lang passed 3 months after the last part he filmed.

There is a segment not in the HBO doc was that James Brown almost didn't open it because his people wanted all his fee to be paid up front. It wasn't looking like he would play but he decided to sing because it's Woodstock. I would say it's a tad more but still similar. Like a Director's Cut. More boobs.

Isn't that keeping with the spirit of Woodstock though? No music till the organizers pay? (I'm referring to the story that The Who wouldn't play '69 till they got paid, which involved opening the bank on a Saturday, something that just wasn't done back then)

Woodstock '69 became a free concert. This one they made sure it was going to be profitable from the start. So they started cutting corners.

This seems kind of pointless considering there was already a doc on the subject, and so recently.

Who knows why. It's possible someone caught wind of one being made and it became a race to release with HBO winning last year. Maybe they were both trying for a 20th anniversary of the concert and got delayed for one reason or another.

Sometimes it happens with narrative movies: Volcano and Dante's Peak, Antz and A Bug's Life.

Wikipedia has a whole page of them.

I like how they called out Fight Club as an influencer at the time in episode 1. Fight Club was released 2 months after Woodstock 99.

We watched the other documentary several months ago. It was very good but this series delves much deeper into many more facets of what actually happened. Actually seeing the audience energy rippling during Korn's opening song was astonishing to witness.

The first episode is fantastic and completely engaging. Harkens back to my mid 20's when all those headliners were HUGE, but are now largely irrelevant to today's music trends.

Not as an influencer. He says "It's a good snapshot of where the psychology may have been for a lot of the kids who attended Woodstock 99".

The book or the film?

He talks about the film, as well as American Pie. But like I said, as a reflection of attitudes towards masculinity and sexuality at the time, not as the reason for any behaviors.

You don't think it's a mistake to say that a film that hadn't come out yet was a good snapshot of where the culture was? OK ...

Yeah, they mention violence/consumerism at it's peak in the USA, but show a bunch of footage from Fight Club over what's being said about violence and consumerism in the USA. Very misleading there since the film didn't come out until the Fall of that year.

Think of the Fight Club influence not being a direct influence, but that both the chaos at Woodstock '99 and Fight Club were influenced and inspired by the same cultural zeitgeist.

No I don't think that. Just like how people can think that (for example) Euphoria is a good representation of high schoolers today. Not that high schoolers are suddenly inspired by and emulating those actors, but that is a fairly accurate current contemporary representation of high school students in 2022.
That's the difference between "inspired" and "a snapshot of the times".

The release date "Issue" aside I'm not a huge fan of putting too much blame on the culture. If you put over 400,000 people in those conditions at any point in time I think something similar would occur. I haven't seen the HBO doc but the commercials made it seem like it was more of a focus there than at least the first two episodes (all I've seen) of this series.

Euphoria wasn't that different from my high school experiences in the late 80s and early 90s in a little backwater hick town.

The kids on Euphoria just have cellphones, better drugs, more money, and a higher tolerance for gay stuff. Otherwise, it was pretty much the same.

So in other words, while some high school experiences are universal, Eupora is more emblematic of high schoolers today than of those in the late 80s?

Just finished the Netlfix version and they cut out the part that focuses on the death of one of the attendees. 24 year old guy who died of heat related illness. I assume Netflix did not/could not get clearance to use that portion that was on the HBO version.
