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.
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.
My best performance as a movie star...if you can find me!
Treat Williams in one of his better roles
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.
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.
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.
