Trailer Watch: Taking Woodstock
If you really look at the filmography of Ang Lee, you'll see an assorted bag of period pieces (Sense & Sensibility), franchise action films (Hulk), provocative political films (Lust, Caution), high-brow kung-fu films (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and a gay Cowboy movie (Brokeback Mountain). The man has won two Oscars already, and can seemingly tackle any genre thrown in front of him. With this movie, he seems to be going for light comedy, and actually casted a relatively green comedian (the very funny Demitri Martin) in the lead. Sure, its packed with veteran acting talent like Imelda Staunton, Liev Schrieber, and Eugene Levy, but what can you make of this film, really? Well, if Lee's behind the reigns, then I'm in.
