“Woodshock” is one of the biggest A24 releases of the year. Well, it was one of my most anticipated and then I saw it. The Mulleavy Sisters of Rodarte have an insanely visual eye, but the plot needed a punch-up. Dunst playing a broken and lost young woman trying to find purpose in life was great in Melancholia. Now, it just feels like revisiting the well. Does an actress have a limitation on revisiting themes? I’m not sure, but what is keeping the film in this vague area?
It’s a sweet movie at points that has real things to say about mourning and moving on. However, the film stays so vague that it will turn off most potential viewers. That’s not the worst thing, but I feel that I’ll need to revisit the film in the future.
