Great period piece + folk interest,
This review is from: Alice's Restaurant [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Ok - 36 years later. This movie really captures the feeling of that time in 1969 (released) or 1967 (created). It's fascinating for that. But it's got more depth because Arlo (the main character & in real life) is grieving for his father and working things out. And his father isn't just anyone, he's Woody Guthrie. So Pete Seeger & Lee Hayes (The Weavers) appear in the movie. I'd recommend this movie for anyone who'd like more of an angle on the folk movement, and especially for anyone who'd like to see what it was like "back then" or relive it if you were there. It's also fun to see Stockbridge MA before it got so touristy.
