Ang Lee Directs a Demetri Martin Woodstock Comedy. And It Looks … Funny?
I’ve never seen Demetri Martin’s show. In fact, besides advertisements for that show, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him in anything at all. He still strikes me as obnoxious, one of those hipster-y kids that spoke in that newfangled Urban Dictionary quirk (warning: Uninformed opinion). But it’s a testament to Ang Lee that his trailer for Taking Woodstock makes me want to look past my completely baseless distaste for Martin, as well as my well-founded hatred for Dan Fogler.
The film is based on Elliot Tiber’s memoir, about his small role in the making of the 1969 Woodstock festival. Tiber was an interior designer who was responsible for granting the permit for the music festival. Taking Woodstock also stars Eugene Levy, Emile Hirsh, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Paul Dano, and Liev Schreiber.
