Larry Kramer in Love and Anger is a feature-length documentary about the legendary author, activist and playwright, Larry Kramer. It is an in-depth 'warts and all' portrait of one of the most important and controversial figures in contemporary gay America, a political firebrand who gave voice to the outrage and grief that inspired a generation of gay men and lesbians to fight for their lives. He's a complicated man, who, at 78, still commands our attention.
Larry Kramer, a powerful, outspoken fighter. Unafraid to speak up and speak out ... And utterly watchable and captivating. Really wasn't expecting much from this doc, but was pleasantly surprised. A great and comprehensive history of AIDS activists in NYC in the late 70s and early 80s and beyond.
Well made. Well shot. Fantastic archival footage. Obviously the product of passion and heart and good fundamental storytelling. But make no mistake -- Larry Kramer is the heart and soul of this doc .... And this doc has plenty of it.
Watched it on HBO. Recommended.
