Movie Info

In New York City for the first time while on his way to enlist in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War, Oklahoma farm hand Claude Hooper Bukowski (John Savage) meets up with a freewheeling group of Central Park hippies led by the irrepressible George Berger (Treat Williams). When the unlikely friends meet upper-middle-class debutante Sheila Franklin (Beverly D'Angelo), sparks fly between the country boy and the city girl, and Berger's troupe attempts to keep the young lovers together.

  • As it is, Arthur Penn's Alice's Restaurant - a film whose situations and even imagery Hair several times calls to mind - offers from its contemporary vantage-point a far more reflective impression of late-60s counterculture.

  • Maybe it's just as well that this version had to wait a decade to be filmed so Forman could be hired to do it. He brings life to the musical form in the same way that West Side Story did, the last time everyone was saying the movie musical was dead.

  • Milos Forman's movie version of Hair is every bit as exhilarating and exciting as the original play. What's more, Forman has managed to recreate with amazing accuracy the rebellious mood and irreverent spirit of those confusing times.

  • has enough vigor and raucousness to carry it past its various pitfalls while celebrating an age that, far from dawning, had already passed

  • It gets my vote as the all-time best rock film and second only to 1935's Top Hat as the all-time best musical.

Audience Reviews for Hair

    Aside from the catchy tunes, Hair is a deeply flawed musical comedy trying too hard to break the boundary and ultimately failed.

    The movie is uneven and seems like it was made about ten years too late (while today it feels dated), but it is made worth it by its songs, its irreverence in the way it wants to capture the free spirit of those rebellious times and its timeless message in favor of peace.

    "Gimme head with hair Long beautiful hair Shining, gleaming, Streaming, flaxen, waxen" Some pretty fun songs, and some fun characters, but overall I didn't care for it too much. I was a little bored at times. I'm not sure why Sheila hung out with them so much. Their rebellious ways might have been charming, but if I was forced to take a taxi half naked, I don't think I would give them the time of day. Just like with Hud's baby mama, I mean why did she suddenly join the group, she seemed pretty pissed that he might have fathered another child. Although Berger in the military at the end was pretty good WTF moment. That caught me off guard. So I give this film 3 stars out of 5. Not bad but not great.
