Life Support Reviews
It's a five star movie. You can tell it was on a tight budget, but the movie over comes that and makes use of what it has. In the heart of Brooklyn we see the harsh reality's of poverty and those who suffer with the AID's virus today.
The movie is very educational and only inspires those who have it - to let others know, and those who dont, to be tested. People need to reach out to one another and save lives and this movie is a perfect example to lead the way.
I was impressed by this films inspiration, guts, heart, and reality. Following a true life story it makes for as inspiration on life as it does on the big screen.
[font=Century Gothic]While more a public service announcement than a narrative feature, "Life Support" is still worthwhile for covering ground on how AIDS has affected the African American community which is rarely covered these days.(I was especially curious about the female condom.) Believable characters, good performances and a nice use of Brooklyn locations definitely help. The message is that AIDS is not automatically a death sentence anymore. So, there is little point in dwelling on the past, when we should be concerned in the present while having hope for the future. The movie even has a couple of good words for women's basketball.

it's up lifting and sad/depressing at the same time.
I think that Queen Latifah did a fonaminal job!!
