Movie was indicative of the times
20 April 2002 | by (NEW YORK CITY) – See all my reviews

Sticks and stones (1970) gave a far more realistic look into the gay subculture of the time. I found the characters far more believable, than I did with Boys in the Band, which presented a more theatrical approach and not necessarily what I would accept to be an exact picture of gay life, nevertheless, Sticks And Stones, apart from the stereotypical few characters, it could easily be hetrosexual. The audience becomes a sort of voyeur to these selective moments leading to the Fire Island Party-it seems all plausible. The tire changing scene had to be ad-lib, it's so spontaneously funny and well done-a prepared script just couldn't give that kind of naturalness.

Craig Dudley, who plays the role of Peter, definitely has the acting edge. He creates a more interesting complex character. That disturbing moment when he discusses the killing of the cat becomes a chilling revelation-even beauty has its flaws.

J Will Deane, who plays his lover buddy doesn't have Craig Dudley's expertise, but his character sustains the indifference that justifies Peter's frustrations and over whelming need for something better than what he has.

It's certainly a document of the post Stonewall Revolution-a time definitely when their hearts were young and gay and life had a totally different look. If you like the Andy Warhol factory films, then this is a must see.
