Gripping, multi-level, multi-character chronicle of ACT UP Paris in early '90s.
Full Review | Original Score: A-
February 2, 2018
A pungent piece of social history, chronicling the early days of the ACT UP movement in Paris with bawdy humor, bottomless compassion and a rebel yell.

... how it didn't make the cut for the Best Foreign Film Oscar, I'm sure I don't know.

While it tells a deeply affecting story about a gay relationship at its center, what lifts the film up to greatness is the way that it portrays a living, breathing community of gay activists.

"BPM" is an affecting memorial about being alive and being heard - a movie that says the only things that matter in life are love, righteous struggle, and the joy of being with others. It shakes all three until their atoms get up and dance.

Robin Campillo's vision transcends the mere recount of facts. It immerses the viewer inside the movement and dilutes the division between the personal and the political. [Full Review in Spanish]

However, in our current age in which social media has become the message, BPM is a good reminder that when physical bodies aren't present on the front lines their silence can very well indeed equal death.

2017's best feature film...a masterpiece, an emotionally affecting epic. Campillo saves his most provocative moment for last, an astounding depiction of love, death and the fight for life.

It is very didactic, but in a very natural way. [Full Review in Spanish]

January 3, 2018
It deals with a dense and important subject without forgetting its characters have lives of their own and are capable of laughing and loving (otherwise, what's the point in fighting?). [Full review in Portuguese.]

A granular procedural about a group from the LGBT community fighting for equality, but one with which marginalised groups around the world today can easily draw parallels.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
December 29, 2017
The movie recreates the exhilarating-yet-exhausting feeling of those years. And it summons up the mundane awfulness of an early demise.
December 28, 2017
The confidence and clarity of Robin Campillo's writing is evident from the film's opening scene.
December 23, 2017
A worthy movie, if lumpy.
