Ang Lee's kids told him to try LSD....
    #11351731 - 10/30/09 02:49 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

Oct 30 09 - The Press Association

Director Ang Lee has said his children told him to try LSD to help make his new film Taking Woodstock more authentic.

The comedy, set in the chaotic outskirts of the Woodstock festival, features a psychadelic acid sequence - a drug the director has never taken.

But Lee said he had peer-group pressure from an unusual source: "I'm almost embarrassed to say I've never taken LSD myself, at the end of the day it doesn't matter if you've taken it or not, you have to visualise it - this is what I said to my kids when they said 'Daddy you should try it'."

He added: "I said 'No, look I didn't go through a sex change operation to make women's movies.'"

The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon director was just a 14-year-old schoolboy studying for his exams in Taiwan when the hippies were freaking out at Woodstock, but he said he felt the festival's impact even on the other side of the world.

"I saw images on the TV news, it was groovy... it was admirable but it was very far away.

"Woodstock was the epiphany before we lost the innocence. It was the baby boomers coming of age... a new energy. I think it was a pivotal change in our history."

He added: "Most of all it's the innocence of believing Utopia is possible, I think that's like a dream, a miracle."

:: Taking Woodstock is released on November 13.

Obviously he didn't want to take it.

Why should he be forced to?

if forced we all know the negative impact it could lead to, don't be silly.

Right? If you don't know what it's like to be bombarded with massive amounts of lethal radiation you're certainly in no place to be making an entire movie about it.

the lsd scene in the movie is hauntingly accurate, despite ang lee's history of non-dosing.

i'd say best representation of lsd visuals i've ever seen in a movie.

plus the film is pretty damn good, and funny.
