AIDS

Dallas Buyers Club, a capsule review

film note: Dallas Buyers Club

I’m glad this movie talks about a time period that most people, even most gay men, have forgotten, it’s still too bad that this kinda dry vehicle will get seen more than any of the worthy documentaries about the response to the AIDS crisis, such as Voices from the Front, How To Survive a Plague, We Were Here and United in Anger.

film review: The Normal Heart

film note: The Normal Heart

I insisted that a straight friend of mine watch this film and he finally did. He came back from it and said that he didn’t realize what had happened, had had no idea. And he said something that has stuck with me: For gay men, it must have been like the apocalypse. That’s exactly right.
