Movie Info

Milos Forman's adaptation of the tribal rock musical Hair stars John Savage as Claude, a quiet young man from the Midwest who becomes friendly with a group of New York hippies on his way to begin basic training in the military. The repressed Claude is quite taken with Berger (Treat Williams) and the group of freedom seekers who reside in Central Park. The group encourages Claude to go after a debutante named Sheila (Beverly D'Angelo). Legendary choreographer Twyla Tharp masterminded the dances,

It's the songs that make this film worth watching. Without them, it's a pretty uneven narrative that can be awfully slow at times.

Milos Forman's screen version of the landmark musical production is uneven, though there's no doubt it would have been better received had been made earlier, during the Vietnam War.

Hair benefited from the creative freedom of '70s cinema...at its best when it's most creatively subversive... [Blu-ray]

With the possible exception of A Hard Day's Night, it gets my vote as the all-time best rock film.

Hair is a zany blend of song, dance and parody with its giddy portrait of hippies.

Has more going for it than against it, not in the least the fact that Forman proves to have a natural affinity for filming musical numbers.

Toe-tappin' hippie-shakin' fun.

Treat Williams delivered a great performance as Berger, and showshe doesn't deserve to be stuck in TV movies like he is now.

Audience Reviews for Hair

When the film first debuted I wouldn't go see it: "Yet another ploy by The Man to hijack The Movement!" Now, years later, much less militant (still don't trust The Pigs!), and I discover simply a film about some conflicting attitudes at the time put to creative song and dance ... The Movement got hijacked by Walmart, cable TV, and Colonel Sanders; and the war machine ...? Its gone, right? Or at least balanced. Maintained. But we're here about the movies, right? So maybe this one's still relevant.

Although this musical was about 10 years late in being adapted to film, it brings you back the 60s to any audience. Fantastic musical, I highly recommend it.

while sometimes a little scattered, it's really quite poignant and touching at times. The music is (mostly) good.
