At first I thought that this film could have been a little more in depth and maybe it could have had a little more time devoted to Stonewall but in retrospect they were right to just concentrate on Vito himself. His cousin whom he was very close to said to him on his deathbed, "When you meet St Peter at the gates of heaven and he asks what you've done you can tell him you made the world a little better for all mankind". She's right, he did. He stood up and fought for equality and raised many issues and probably saved many lives. He was the purist of activists, his work was selfless and yet he isn't particularly well known. For that sake I hope people see this film and remember him as the great man that he was.

Brilliant subject for the HBO documentary treatment. Not only an in depth look at a leader but a memorable chronicle of the early gay movement in New York.

A great night at the movies.
A shimmering mind that illuminated my view from the crack in the closet door.
Brave, sweet and compassionate- come back any time, Vito.

This has been sitting on my dvr for awhile. I'm glad I finally got to it. I had heard of Vito Russo but I had no idea how much he was a part of modern gay history. I definitely have a new admiration for his life.

Beautiful, inspiring but ultimately heartbreaking portrait of a remarkable individual who should not be forgotten.

The story of Vito is very inspirational, this documentary left me desiring a bit of an epilogue, but other then that, its great.
