Longtime Companion (1990)

Moram priznati sinoć dok sam gledao ovaj film zaspao sam!
No bez obzira na to preporučujem vam da pogledate ovaj film, a posebno oni koji AIDS smatraju nečim na što su imuni.
Film je snimljen 1990 i govori o prvim danima AIDSA, kada je ta bolest najviše ugrožavala gay populaciju, narkomane i hemofiličare. Srećom danas nije tako jer je velika većina gay populacije naučila kako da se zaštiti od ove na žalost smrtonosne bolesti.

Plot Summary: Perhaps the first film to put a human face on the AIDS epidemic, Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as "Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder," we watch the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of our protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry us from the it-couldn't-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on all of our lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times' refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as "Longtime Companions" of the deceased. Written by Mark Fleetwood {mfleetwo@mail.coin.missouri.edu}

Trivia: In the poster art and DVD cover, the image of the guys walking on the beach has been altered - some might say censored. In the scene where the poster/cover image is taken from in the movie, the character "Fuzzy" is wearing an ACT-UP t-shirt that depicts two sailors kissing with the tag line that read "Read My Lips", a play on then President Bush's "Read My Lips, No New Taxes" slogan. In the cover art, the t-shirt graphic has been removed so that he only has a blank white t-shirt now. more
