typical mid-80s gay movie with good acting and directing
16 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

without high expectations, you can have good time with this movie. direction is nice, and atmosphere is cool. san francisco gay scene looks nice, but i don't feel enough paranoia to empathize with characters. it feels like movie tries to tell aids crisis, and how people felt its burden on their shoulders but you end up watching almost 20 minutes of gay ballet/dancing scenes over and over again.

cinematography is classy. amateur looking actors are doing very well jobs. not the best gay themed movie of the year (that one is stranger by the lake for sure) or aids/HIV movie (and that one is dallas buyers club) but still very enjoyable experience. director chris mason johnson will probably make better movies than this one.
