Wow. I don't know what to possibly say about this movie. I watched this in my Freshman seminar and the first half of the movie made me laugh. The touching way they tell their story it's amazing. You fall in love with the characters and you realize that love is genderless. Whether it's between a man and a woman, two women or two men, it's all the same.
I came into this film with the attitude that people who are promiscuous with their sex lives deserve to get AIDS and I have no sympathy for them, I still feel that way, but after seeing all the pain Tom went through and seeing his corpse laying there I'm disgusted. No one deserves to die like that. He was basically skin stretched over bones. No one should have to suffer that way. You saw his intelligence and ability to hold on a conversation deteriorate along with his health. I forever have a picture of Tom's lifeless skeleton etched in my brain.
You'll cry, you'll laugh, you'll learn something. You'll learn what true love means and what suffering is like.
