Critic Reviews for Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt

All Critics (1)

That each of the thousands of panels represents a life as unique as the five witnessed on screen is heartbreaking. This Oscar-winning docu paved the way for other features about AIDS.

Audience Reviews for Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt

One of the most devastating documentaries ever made. There is no way to perfectly capture the pain of death, but somehow CommoN Threads seems to perfectly display every painful moment of AIDS. This is a documentary that everyone has to see.
