touching and groundbreaking film, great ensemble acting. you feel these people could be friends. early showcase for mary louise parker and campbell scott.
Its surprising. It was made before Philadelphia, focuses on characters that are almost entirely gay men, it covers the entirety of the 1980s, offers a very honest portrait of the AIDS crisis, is a better movie, but Philadelphia is heralded as the definitive film about this subject. This film may move a little too fast but it isn't cheesy or award hungry like Philadelphia. It has a great cast and its well made. Deserves way more attention than it gets.
For those of you old enough to remember a time before AIDS, this film will bring back all the trauma and paranoia that queer culture felt at the beginning of the 1980's. The film brilliantly captures two times in gay culture: Before AIDS and After AIDS and is filled with powerful moments. Wrenching and unforgettable. The film actually plays a bit like a horror film to me. Hard to watch, but important.
