Movie Info

United in Anger: A History of ACT UP is an inspiring documentary about the birth and life of the AIDS activist movement from the perspective of the people in the trenches fighting the epidemic. Utilizing oral histories of members of ACT UP, as well as rare archival footage, the film depicts the efforts of ACT UP as it battles corporate greed, social indifference, and government neglect. -- (C) Official Site

As scrappy and passionate as the actions it documents, "United in Anger: A History of Act Up" delivers a living tribute to a movement spawned by death and despair.

A documentary that could have been a lot angrier but aims to educate rather than agitate.

Crucially, the variety of interviewees in Hubbard's doc-men and women of different races and classes-underscores just how diverse ACT UP was in its heyday.

Que o ACT UP foi essencial ao desmistificar a AIDS e melhorar as condições de suas vítimas é algo inquestionável. Mas Unidos pela Raiva não precisava repetir isso por 90 minutos para provar o argumento.

This story deserves more than a merely functional telling, which is really all it manages here.

A telling reminder of just how effective civil disobedience still can be when you tap into a forbidden emotion to unleash the requisite righteous rage needed to challenge an intransigent authority in collective and constructive fashion.

Those Wall Street occupiers could learn something from this superbly informative and moving documentary about a movement that really got the job done.

Audience Reviews for United in Anger: A History of ACT UP

There is no doubt that ACT UP played a major role in the fight against the AIDS pandemic, but this documentary lacks a clear structure and proves to be quite repetitious, showing too many interviews of people saying the same thing - which becomes tiring really fast.
