The combination of schoolgirl confessional... with a discernible element of holier-than-thou voyeurism does give off a certain sliminess.
The original queer tragicomedy
The characters' pathos and self-loathing were deplorable even in 1970, but the it is significant historically as one of Hollywood's first explicitly gay movies and an early work of Billy Friedkin just before making the Oscar-winner French Connection.
These are not the type of gay boys that you would like to take home.
A movie that needs to finally be acknowledged -- unsullied -- for the groundbreaking status that it deserves.
The sizzle of the bon mot%u2013tossing ensemble, intact from the stage original, is bracing and fuels the film's momentum.
a breakthrough film in the gay film genre; but dated by today's standards
lively, edgy, groundbreaking
Groundbreaking, yet entertaining too.
Powerful, painful, and blessed with endlessly quotable dialogue.

Compelling but at times brutally grim drama is a view into the dark night of the soul. Committed performances and good direction keep this watchable but at times some of the actions are so cruel you have to wonder how these people could of been friends before and how could they still be friends after.
Groundbreaking drama based on the off-Broadway play by Mart Crowley, featuring every member of the show's original cast. Michael is throwing a birthday party for his friend Harold. All the guests are gay. One is "straight". Before the night is over, the conversation will turn ugly. The catty banter is infused with wit, vitriol, camp and self-loathing ; hilarious one minute, excruciatingly painful the next. Claustrophobic direction actually benefits the material.
Spellbinding drama directed by William Friedkin. Excellent filmization of Matt Crowley's landmark play about nine men at a birthday party located somewhere in the upper side of New York City. It is a nice party,with one exception;eight of the men at the party are gay,the ninth insists that he is not. Often hilarious,frequently sad,but always thought provoking,and sensationally acted by the original stage cast. This was one of the greatest movies ever associated within the status of Queer Cimema and one of the top ten Queer movies of all time. Brilliant piece of work on this movie which stars Peter White, Leonard Frey, Cliff Gorman, Laurence Luckinbill,and Keith Prentice. Worth the wait to be finally seen,and not to be missed.
