Quotes

Robert: I explained why I'm leaving. I told you I'll be back.
Michael: You're leaving because you don't want to be around when Nick dies. You don't want to deal with me going through that. You'll come walking back when it's all over. You better stay away man or you're going to come back to a fucking maniac. You think I can be mean now? I'm going to go after every politician, idiot doctor and smug born again asshole I can get my hands on.

7/10
16 February 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

An early gay movie that deals with AIDS on a first-hand basis, the film is delightful because it doesn't water down (or fetishize) the gay characters for a straight audience. Steve Buscemi gives a wacky, youthful performance as the character with the disease, and chronichles his relationship with his ex-boyfriend and his new partner. It's a slight but pretty enjoyable little movie, probably worth seeing for any Buscemi fan. 7/10
