Hedwig and the Angry Inch Reviews

For me, too, Mitchell is more affecting as a Dietrich-like chanteuse looking for love; as a rocker he's just one more shouter. But his presence carries this film.

Mitchell, who wrote, directed and starred in both the film version and the hit off-Broadway play, captivates in the title role, creating a perfect blend of rock star and star-crossed lover in his beautiful, complex Hedwig.

One of the strangest and most effective musicals to come along in a long time.

Velvet Goldmine and All that Jazz by way of The Wall--a bombastically endearing romp that is as infectious as it is (surprisingly) poignant.

Not since Bob Fosse tackled and rethought "Cabaret" in 1972 has there been such an artistically successful stage-to-screen transfer.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch" is a top-notch rock and roll musical along the lines of "Moulin Rouge" and "Rocky Horror Picture Show.

This film is a rare thing of edgy beauty and substance in a summer of sheer emptiness.

Mitchell and Trask clearly strive to bring back into vogue gay (or at least sexually ambiguous) boys who know how to rock! And how to look fabulous while doing so.

Shows all the promise of becoming a cult movie, with the polish, colour and textual fluidity of a studio comedy but a distinctly underground sensibility and countless memorable moments.

Like its protagonist, Hedwig succeeds on its own terms, brazenly asserting itself with no regrets or apologies.

Often hilarious, sometimes outrageous, intermittently nonsensical and goofy, Hedwig is nonetheless a never-less-than endearing cinematic experience.

The show belongs wholly to Mitchell, although good moments are also claimed by Andrea Martin, Miriam Shor, and Michael Pitt in what are otherwise sketchy roles.

It is fairly short and fairly enjoyable.

It's hard to not get caught up in the sense of exuberance and or to ignore the amount of energy and creativity that went into it.

A funny and strangely affecting gender-bender saga that gives rock and roll movies a much-needed jolt.

Surrounds a weird, funny and touching story with a knockout series of songs performed by an exceptional cast.

Hedwig's songs stuck with me for days, and somebody will literally have to cause me bodily harm to harvest the soundtrack from my CD player.
