Bracing in its frank depiction of gay sex life, both promiscuous and committed.
Matthew Broderick shows his versatility and might as an actor here
| Original Score: 3/5
A straightforward, very funny love story which glows with fulfilment and promise.

A rousing screen version of the 1983 Tony Award-winning play.
Greatly shortened from Mr. Fierstein's long-running, Tony Award-winning play, the film version emphasizes the lovable at every turn, but the surprise is that it does this entertainingly and well.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Effective, moving film version of Fierstein's play
I have not seen anyone quite like Fierstein in the movies, and the fact that he is a specific individual gives this material a charm and weight it might have lacked if an interchangeable actor had played the role.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The themes are universal, and Arnold is an Everyperson who wants to be loved not for what others want him to be, but for what he really is -- "a person, a valuable person."
Simply viewed as a movie about people, Torch Song Trilogy has the kind of wit, grace, and intense feeling that Woody Allen tried for unsuccessfully in Interiors, September, and Another Woman...
| Original Score: 3/4
| Original Score: 2/5
An earnest, emotionally accurate, but seriously flawed drama.
