Critic Reviews for Hipsters
What is... wondrous, the chief repression that we see-and hear-is Stalinist hatred of jazz and American hip clothes.
It's taken the Russian musical "Hipsters" four years to reach America. That's all right. It may take audiences four years to recover.
Audience Reviews for Hipsters
I was unsure how the "Musical" portion of this film would work, but it rarely detracted from the film.
Colorful Russian musical goes on a bit too long but the performances, songs and dance numbers are very infectious.
Fantastic Russian musical that takes place a few years after Stalin's death about the emergence of American-influenced hipsters. On par with American musicals like "Grease" and "Hair", and better than both in some ways, the photography and direction are beautifully matched to the rhythm and the acting is superb. This film was a huge hit in Russia, but Americans have seen it. I had the privilege of seeing it on the big screen via Austin Film Society. However you get a chance to see this, don't miss it. The Hipsters in the movie could even be a metaphor for the treatment of gays in Russia today. It works on so many levels.
