In 1969, 500,000 people descended on a small patch of field in a little-known town in upstate New York called Woodstock. In this documentary, the iconic event is chronicled in unflinching detail, from the event's inception all the way through to the unexpected air-delivery of food and medical supplies by the National Guard. The film contains performances, interviews with the artists and candid footage of the fans in a defining portrait of 1960s America.

Woodstock as a documentary film is not by any stretch of the imagination bette than Monterey Pop. It probably should be on this list, but to rank Monterey Pop at 42 and Woodstock at 32 is outrageous. It just isn't that good. Captured history yes. But misses the mark in conveying a feeling or sense of that time. Monterey Pop captures that superbly.
