[An] extraordinary, groundbreaking documentary.
...may be the most important movie you've never heard of, much less seen. It was the first feature length documentary about gay people, made by gay people, and one of the first to treat homosexuality as a naturally occurring phenomenon.
Word's bound to have something to share with the viewer, gay or straight.
Sometimes it's moving.
A landmark, but not a classic.
The gift of time and perspective has added a few kinks to what seems a mostly pedestrian experience.
A landmark docu, not just for being the first on its subject, but also because of the collective way it was financed, directed and edited. Locations and clothes were chosen in consultation with the 26 gays and lesbians to make them feel at ease
This is a beautiful little time capsule shot in 1975 of interviews with 26 queer people, selected from 200 pre-interviews and edited from 50 hours of footage. More than anything, it taught me that I underestimated how advanced queer studies was in '75 and how commonplace that knowledge was among queer people of that era. Of course, it has the effect of showing the eternal struggles of queer life, and the struggles that have remained static because of our political climate.
Also, the restoration looks beautiful.
