A beautiful AIDS film...
21 March 2000 | by Andrij-2See all my reviews

This film, its social commentary aside, is easily one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, with its very personal camera work and (this is the first time I've seen a film maker use this well) superimposing of images. What's most interesting, I think, is that Muller took the film beyond simple experimentalism and made the piece one of the most impressive AIDS films I've seen since Christopherson's "Tainted Love" film/music video.
