The Square Circuit

Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

I don't know if the hippies are dirtier and sweatier in WOODSTOCK or in this recent FESTIVAL EXPRESS documentary. It's a very interesting film, actually using many of the same techniques as WOODSTOCK (split-screen shots) but also done in retrospect, having some of the principals give interviews about what happened 35 years ago. Great grungy footage of the Grateful Dead, the Band, Janis Joplin etc. on a train crossing Canada in the summer of 1970.
