Classic Mayhem: Woodstock 99
almost a year later Woodstock 99: Peace, Love and Rage, produced by HBO and broadcast by Crave, the (infamous) festival debacle inspires a new documentary, this time on Netflix. Divided into three particularly dense one-hour episodes, the series Classic Mayhem: Woodstock 99 (well titled Shit Cluster: Woodstock ’99in the original English version) fascinates us, disgusts us and shocks us.
Interviewed in front of the lens of Amanda Micheli (vegas baby) during the first 10 minutes of the documentary, the actress, singer, producer and businesswoman declares that from now on she wants to “make films that are entertaining”, but that “carry a message”. Surprisingly, Halftime keeps both promises.

We miss the host and comedian so much that we often visit his new YouTube channel, where he regularly posts archives of the late show from CBS. On the Netflix show: Interviews with Cardi B, Kevin Durant, Billie Eilish, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Ryan Reynolds and… Will Smith. But temper expectations of him, the show was recorded before the actor fell in everyone’s esteem by raising his hand to Chris Rock at the Oscars.
the gray man
The brothers Anthony and Joseph Russo make a film here that lives up to the expectations they set for themselves. The feature film is two hours long, but there are enough explosions, chases, gunfights, suspense, and humor to keep us interested until the very end. No romance (other than a light flirtation) and that’s fine. This is an action movie and the action comes first until the exciting final fight scene.
the man from toronto
