Rock Hudson's Home Movies (1992)

** (out of 4)

Director Mark Rappaport has made some rather unique documentaries in his time. He basically takes a subject and twists and turns everything in order to fit whatever story he wants to tell. In this movie he plays the narrator, a person acting as if they're Rock Hudson, as the actor comes out and admits he's gay.

There's no question that this documentary is going to upset many people and it's easy to see why. For starters, it's common knowledge now that Hudson died of AIDS and was gay. This documentary basically takes clips from all of Hudson's movies and twists the dialogue to make it seem that there were "clues" to this in all of his movies.

I will admit that this is a rather well-made film and there's no question that the director is a talented filmmaker who knows how to edit and twist things in order to get what story he is going for. This film is a tad bit silly on one hand because it takes famous movies and takes things so out of context that it's hard to take it too serious. At the same time, twisting the movie's dialogue into fitting some other agenda is what's going to make people most upset.

ROCK HUDSON'S HOME MOVIES isn't a complete success and as I said, I'm sure many will feel it cross the lines. What lines those are will be up to the viewer.
