Important Gay Film
31 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

This film is of historic importance in gay culture. First, it was filmed at the Continental Baths. Second, it was one of the first films exploring this aspect of gay life in the 1970's. This film depicts much of what I was familiar with as the struggle of coming out gay back before it was acceptable. It's important for younger gay men to understand what it was like in the days before broader acceptance existed.

Yes, many of the production values aren't the best but for what this film represents that can be overlooked. The acting isn't the greatest but they feel like sincere honest performances.

Once I got into it, I was captivated. I should note there is male and female nudity for those that might be offended.

The performance of "Pretty Girl" by Jane Olivor is outstanding.
