A moving and sincere depiction of the 1970's gay life in London
22 August 2001 | by erokaSee all my reviews

Not one for all taste, but a very personal account of the gay liberation movement in the 70's and 80's in London, from the time homosexuality was against the law till the high days of AIDS deaths. It's a very convincing film about coming out and the meaning of being gay in a world that has not yet figured out what to do about gay people.

The director is using an old feature of his to depict the life of the gay community at the time. He sometimes used excerpts that are too long and self-indulging. I think Nighthawks was probably a boring film, but it's role in gay cinema is understood.

The film is explicit, if you're the kind who worries about this.
