Rating: 3.5/4 -- Hair benefited from the creative freedom of '70s cinema...at its best when it's most creatively subversive... [Blu-ray] Full Review
Rating: 4/4 -- With the possible exception of A Hard Day's Night, it gets my vote as the all-time best rock film. Full Review
Rating: 4.5/5 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- My best performance as a movie star...if you can find me!
Greenwich Village Gazette
Rating: 3.5/4 -- 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. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Treat Williams in one of his better roles
Rating: 4/5 -- Toe-tappin' hippie-shakin' fun.
In what is widely considered to be even better than the Broadway stage musical, this film version of HAIR, directed by Milos Forman, gives a boost to what was, on the stage, a nonexistent plotline, and highlights the already fabulous score with this epic musical. Filmed on location in and around New York City, the main plotline follows Claude (John Savage) a farm boy turned draftee from Oklahoma on his way to Vietnam. In New York, he is adopted by a group of flower children, led by Berger (Treat Williams) and including Jeannie (Annie Golden), who take him on a series of counter-cultural adventures that introduce Claude to hallucinogens and to a flaky but loveable debutante named Sheila (Beverly D'Angelo). Along with this experience come an introduction to issues of race, gender, politics, and war. The performances--both the acting and the singing--are extraordinary, and choreographer Twyla Tharp stages some of the most inventive and exquisite dance sequences ever seen, including a "horse ballet" by mounted police in Central Park, and an LSD trip-fantasy sequence. The sheer visual energy in HAIR--and the energy of its stars--propels this unique and nostalgic film forward every minute, and gives new insight into the Vietnam War era.
- Theatrical Release: March 14, 1979.
- The original Broadway cast included Melba Moore and Diane Keaton.
