‘Woodshock’ Review: Kirsten Dunst and Rodarte Lose Their Way in the Woods

3 hours ago

(The film was shot in Northern California’s Humboldt County.) A powerful opening, it’s reminiscent of “Wanda,” Barbara Loden’s 1970 independent classic that begins with a miserable housewife wandering through a decimated, coal-blackened landscape in Pennsylvania and. »
