“Mr. Forman has made one of the most thoroughly satisfying movie musicals in years, one that is “integrated” to the extent that the music grows (perhaps “erupts” is the better word) from situation, though no one feels compelled to explain why — the characters in HAIR do not converse in song cues.”
– Vincent Canby, The New York Times
