This cult-classic queer rock musical about Hedwig, a rock star with gender reassignment surgery that went awry and a failed songwriting career, is a fearlessly poignant film about love, identity, and artistic success. Heartbreakingly romantic, funny, and as original as rock and roll should be, it’s hard to believe this film by actor/writer/director John Cameron Mitchell is over 20 years old. See it again, or see it for the first time. It’s never too late to become a Hedhead. (dir. John Cameron Mitchell, U.S, 2001, 92 min)

Employing an array of homespun props, hand-drawn animation, and seedy locales, the film fashions itself into something both exquisitely alluring and delightfully garish out of extremely limited means, quite like its protagonist, a wannabe rock star named Hedwig.” – Slant Magazine
