Very slow, and uninteresting

Pros:
- Nicely filmed, quality of the footage is great.
- You get to know about this train ride with all those great musicians.
- A few interesting points about the people trying to get in for free, expecting this kind of festival to be just free.

Cons:
- So long for what is in the documentary. It should have been not more than 30-45 minutes long with the kind of footage they used in the film. There are super extensive scenes of the bands on stage, and so many of them that you feel that's all you're watching. That's not a good editorial work.
- It is about this train where all these musicians were on, and you don't see anything else but a few jam sessions, and especially this one where the grateful and janis joplin are pretty high on some drugs/alcohol and it's not that interesting to watch. It's like you're watching these cool kids that made a cool documentary about themselves.
