BM01 Broadway Musicals DVD - John Savage (Actor), Treat Williams (Actor), Milos Forman (Director) - Hair - Broadway Musicals DVD - Original Theatrical Poster Gallery. Double Sided Disc - Side A - Full screen - Side B - Wide screen. Brimming with the energy, passion and music that rocked a nation, Hair is an entertaining and powerful tribute to the turbulent spirit of the '60s. Brilliantly recreated by Oscar?(r)-winning-- director Milos Forman and screenwriter Michael Weller (Ragtime), this vibrant screen version of the Broadway phenomenon ranks among the best film musicals (The Hollywood Reporter). Fresh from the farm, Claude Bukowski (John Savage, The Thin Red Line) arrives in New York City for a date with the Army Induction Board, only to walk into a hippie happening inCentral Park and fall in love with the beautiful Shelia (Beverly D'Angelo, American History X). Befriended by the hippies' pacifist leader, Berger (Treat Williams, Mulholland Falls), and urged to crash a formal party in order to declare his love for Shelia, Claude begins an adventure that lands him in jail, Central Park Lake and, finally, in the army. But Berger's final effort to save Claude from Vietnam sets in motion a bizarre twist of fate with shocking consequences. If Hair were only a period piece, it would still be wonderful entertainment - but it's so much more. Previous reviewers have already spoken for me in praising this film's astonishing energy, its fine acting (not stereotypes, but iconic characters), and its forever-fresh-as-a-summer-flower soundtrack. I can only agree with them completely, and add my positive vote to theirs. This is a highly (no pun intended) recommended film. there are great performances by Treat Williams, Beverly D'Angelo (who, as one other reviewer pointed out, is one of the great underrated actresses working today) and John Savage. And beyond THAT there is the astonishing music -- Aquarius (sing along, now), Hair, I Got Life and Let the Sun Shine, which makes tears run down my face every time I see it, even if I see it for the 100th time. This is a magnificent piece of filmmaking, and I don't care if the Broadway show was better or different or more soulful or whatever -- each product stands or falls on its own. I have always loved this musical ever since it came out to buy. I love the music, I also like the era in itself. Excellent movie for the price.
