Critic Reviews for Parting Glances
The film may be shot like a breezy New York City trifle, but an aching undercurrent resides in every interaction.
Tender and resolutely unsentimental, Parting Glances avoided future AIDS movie clichés not because the example had yet to be set, but because its interests lay elsewhere.
It was one of the first films to confront the emotional repercussions of AIDS, and has not become dated--which speaks volumes for this appealing candid movie.
Bill Sherwood's film is one of the first and most significant works (indie, of course) about the AIDS crisis that goes beyond the issue of coming out, placing its romantic triangle in the broader context of a vibrant gay community.
Audience Reviews for Parting Glances
Relationship drama with an seminal AIDS story contains a notable debut performance from Steve Buscemi and several other performers who were just starting out but now are familiar faces. Fine direction by Bill Sherwood, sadly his only film before falling victim to the disease himself.
