  • Too much of "Silverlake Life," though it is a vivid display of the ravages of the disease and ends with a touching scene of the lovers dancing in happier times, alternates between complaining and sentimentalizing.

  • Silverlake Life is singular. It captures the emotional and mental discontinuity of loss -- moments of inarticulate feelings or even craziness -- like few other films.

  • This harrowing, uncompromising account of the devastating process of having AIDS is one of a kind, must-see documentary.

Audience Reviews for Silverlake Life: The View From Here

  • Aug 27, 2009
    Almost unbearably sad documentary that shows the real toll AIDS takes. Compelling in it's matter of factness. Beaautiful in it's way showing the devotion of these two men, imperfect and very human.
