The film that sets the goal for all indie films (in my opinion). I went into this film very hesitant because of the subject matter, but what i got was a rock masterpiece. Fun, weird, and inspiring. As far as movies about german failed rockstars with a botched sex changed operation goes this one is really good. I love the theme and story and the emotional journey that hedwig takes as she comes to discover what it really means to be whole and what defines your sexuality. Great music, great story, maybe some artistic decisions including changes to story and setting aren't the best but overall a very enjoyable rock classic.

To me, the all-time greatest movie ever made! The acting, the music, the story, the campy feel all make Hedwig and The Angry Inch a powerhouse film. God, I can go on for hours how amazing of a film it truly is and how great the music is. A clear definition of what makes a good musical and what good music is.

This has taken me how long to watch since it was released!? Where have I been!? If you are a fan of films like Kinky Boots, Priscilla and To Wong Foo and TV shows like RuPaul's Drag Race then give this a try, its hilarious. It doesn't have as many one liners as the others but the songs are catchy and compliment the film. Brilliant!

To quote a lyric from the film, this adaptation is "shining like the brightest star". Lift up your hands!

Hedwig & the Angry Inch is great film-making with it's engrossing story, brilliant performance from John Cameron Mitchell and a fantastic soundtrack.

Very charming, very easy to see why this is such an underground hit. For all of its humor and bluntness, it stays super grounded and sincere-- manages to never become kitschy -- which is really the charm of both the character and the movie.

Funny, deep, and poignant. Hedwig and the Angry Inch is a rock musical, which is not just about a forgotten transgendered whose songs got stolen. It is about acceptance, tolerance, and a temporary hope that the aforementioned will ever become a universal thing. It has great songs with profound lyrics. But most importantly, it has the amazing performance of John Cameron Mitchell (his directing is awesome too), who fills the screen with a myriad of emotions, opinions, and songs. I really want to see the stage musical now.

Now that Neil Patrick Harris has us rediscovering what a grand play this is it may be time for us to rediscover what a terrific film it was.

Liked the music. Rest was kind of dull.

It's a shame how much of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" gets lost in translation from stage to screen (particularly the heartbreaking metaphorical value of Hedwig and Tommy being played by the same actor), but that's ultimately a testament to how good this adaption really is. John Cameron Mitchell is absolutely electrifying in this tragic and beautiful rock-and-roll fable. The music is ridiculously great.
Super Reviewer

This film isn't just some crazy glam rock tribute, in fact its a musical with serious emotional substance. Probably one of the few times where the significant changes to the source material contributed to the success of the film adaptation.

It was all these years later I discovered Spinal Tap and The Rocky Horror Picture Show had a legitimate, bratty, moody child--sexually ambiguous and rocking wickedly hard.

The music was very fun, but the character of Hedwig made it worth watching. Excellent overall.
