A ball of gender confusion, Biblical allegories and Eastern European politics -one of those would be a tricky subtext for a 90-minute rock opera. But the songs marry Jim Steinman's grandeur to the Stooges' sweat and spit, with a deft, tender screenplay.

Creative Loafing

Mitchell's performance as Hedwig remains one of the best of modern times -- the character is by turns sexy, scary, outrageous, obnoxious, pitiable and vulnerable -- and it anchors a movie that landed on my list of the 10 best films of the 2000s.

One of the most delightful surprises of 2001, and it has lost none of its charm or its surprising power in the intervening years.

Anyone who has ever felt discarded, disenfranchised, or just plain dissed will find in Hedwig a lot to hook into.

Mitchell's successful screen version of his acclaimed play, which feature one of the most original hero(ine), benefits immeasurably from the skills of his producer Christine Vachon and production designer Therese DePrez.

Brilliantly acted, moving, darkly funny, and featuring some terrific songs, this has everything you could possibly want from a transsexual, post-punk, neo glam rock opera.

Cincinnati Enquirer

For all her flamboyance, Hedwig is a poignant and lovable character in Mr. Mitchell's portrayal, and a heck of a lot more interesting than most of the movie heroines we've met this summer.

A wonderfully twisted comedy doubling with insightful, moving drama and a collection of original musical numbers to die for.

A colorful, high-energy rock show ... But it also has a poignant side.

It was so visceral and inherently theatrical off Broadway that at first I thought it was a terrible mistake to commit it to film. But, in one of those rare unforseeable happy endings...

Moulin Rouge professed to be about love, but Hedwig actually has something to say about it.

multitudes seem to be going wild over Hedwig from Sundance to Berlin. Maybe this is the decade of the botched singing sex change. If so, it's nothing to complain about.

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.
