Many Reasonable Placements
20 November 2016 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This documentary is full of common places. However, most of them seem reasonable. I would agree with the main topic, that the fight of gays and lesbian for reconnaissance and equal rights just touch in this aspect: both are linked by same sex desires. For the rest, there are worlds apart. The center subject of AIDS, for instance, is a matter only for male gays: lesbians are the least affected group, in sex terms. And the film recognizes that gays do have little notions of what lesbians do in bed. That I can see in my personal experience as well as in gay films where lesbians appear. There is one point that still I have to see: lesbians are a group more interested than others (say female heterosexuals) in caring for gays with AIDS. Well, the film is from 1997, and the disease passed through many social developments since, but I wouldn't state lesbian care is bigger than other social groups. All in all, there are good prepositions in the film, some that we should incorporate as to think whether gay men should be more concerned about lesbian fates and desires, and, I can't say to which extend, vice-versa.
