5.0 out of 5 stars Great! April 21 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Adapted from the hit off-Broadway musical of the same name is this tale of an "internationally ignored" rock & roll singer who hails from Communist Berlin and who dreams of becoming an American sensation. Hedwig (John Cameron Mitchell), born a boy named Hansel, is raised by a single mother (Alberta Watson) who wishes to see her son do better than his poverty-stricken family. Some years later, Hansel is attracted to a good-looking American G.I, who promises a better life overseas for young Hansel, under one condition: that he undergo a sex-change operation to become a fully functional female who he can then marry. The operation is seriously botched, leaving the now-renamed Hedwig with an "angry inch" only to be stranded in a dingy Kansas trailer park on the day the Berlin Wall comes tumbling down. Hedwig then supports herself through a series of ill-fated lounge gigs and side jobs, meeting up with 16-year old Tommy Gnosis (Michael Pitt), a religious type who befriends her and later steals her songs and becomes the rock star Hedwig always dreamed of being. Undeterred, Hedwig continues to perform in the shadow of Tommy's sold-out stadium tour, attempting to make herself whole in spirit, if not physically. The film features several songs by composer Stephen Trask, who also appears as a member of Hedwig's disinterested rock band; Miriam Shor portrays Hedwig's newfound love and back-up singer.
A mixed-bag effort to translate John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask's ambitious rock musical to the screen, this remains a worthwhile movie experience on any account, successfully opening up its heartfelt, often sad account of an "internationally ignored" rock singer suffering from a botched sex change operation.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of a kind love story July 26 2009
My boyfriend dedicated the Origin of love song to me and a year later I finally purchased the movie and thought it might change how I viewed the song but I love it so much!

4.0 out of 5 stars I don't love musicals, but this one rocks! Oct. 6 2005
Truth be told, I'm not a huge musicals fan. But when I heard the buzz about Hedwig over the years, I had to see it for myself. Sure enough, it was great. But watching the movie and then the DVD extras really made me think that the live show probably was better. I couldn't help but think that the main guy who also directs, seemed a little distracted and unsure of himself at times. But loads of fun, eh?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. But ROCKY HORROR is better. Aug. 7 2002
Format:VHS Tape
I have a feeling that in later years this movie will be as big a cult classic as ROCKY HORROR or BLOODSUCKING FREAKS. No, its not a great movie, but it has just the right amount of weirdness, pomp and some pretty good rock music to become one of the first major cult sucesses of the 21st century. It centers around a German transexual who after a sex change op gone wrong leaves him with the "angry inch" of the title, is appalled when his secret gay lover steals credit for his music and becomes a number one chart success and sets out to get his music back. The music is pretty good, but the movie itself isn't completely sucessful. That said it works better as a film because the visual elements including animation add to what is a rather bizarre, unique viewing experience. Naturally, I haven't seen the musical on which it is based (typical of me, I know) but I recommend it if you are in the mood to watch something a little different, though personally I think ROCKY HORROR stands head and shoulders over HEDWIG any day.

5.0 out of 5 stars DVD features are a Hed Head's delight Aug. 3 2002
By A Customer
Like most of the reviewers here, I was blown away by John Cameron Mitchell's performance as Hedwig. Funny, sad, campy, reflective: If anybody had a more electrifying stage or screen presence in 2001, bring 'em on.
I am writing to point out to fans of the movie/CDs that the DVD has a couple of cool features:
1) The show-stopping "Tear Me Down" was filmed live and thus is a different version than both the original off-Broadway cast recording and, for some reason, the movie soundtrack itself. And it rocks, baby.
2) The featurette on the making of Hedwig is worth the price of admission alone. It includes home video of JCM trying out the Hedwig character in a nightclub setting, mounting the musical, how the film version came to be and JCM's successors in the stage production. It is hands down the best making-of feature I have seen on a DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Town, Wicked Movie July 25 2002
Mark my words, in ten years Hedwig will be looked back upon as the best movie of 2001, with a cult following likened only to Rock Horror. Like most complex movies, Hedwig requires a viewer's patience and an an open mind. Upon reflection, this movie is really not as edgy as it appears. It has less to do with gender-bending and more to do with self-acceptance, letting go of the past, the emptiness of revenge, and no longer playing the victim. These messages are not spoon fed to the viewer by any means and may require multiple viewings to fully grasp. Beware, this is a raw movie, not a pretty package like Moulin Rouge (which I also enjoyed for different reasons). The music is intense and meaningful and the acting is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, GREAT EXTRAS. . . July 19 2002
I made the mistake of watching the entire film before seeing the documentary about the story of Hedwig, which made the entire story so much more fascinating.
Great music, a real rock-n-roll sensibility, and a look at the masculine energy behind the draggy glitter of rock. I thought it was odd that the film was set in the present, more or less, given the wigs and the feel of the film. I was a big fan of Velvet Goldmine, which others feel mixed about, and i'm not a particular fan of this type of music.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. And lots of extras, that's how we like it.
