Director Ang Lee has yet again tackled a seminal part of the American Dream in Taking Woodstock. Perhaps it is his immigrant perspective (he arrived to America when he was 25) that allows him to encapsulate American values in such films as Brokeback Mountain and The Ice Storm. Whatever the cause, his movies are worth watching. Enjoy the trailer, and Demetri Martin’s funny intro.
