The story of the discovery of the AIDS virus, from the early days in 1978, when San Francisco gays began dying from unknown causes, to the identification of the HIV virus. Bigots spoke of a gay plague, scientists fought for the kudos of being first to identify the cause, and disagreements beset San Francisco's gays over the closure of the bathhouses. The film, quite rightly, deals with these issues. find out more...

Bit of an oddity, this one. Ostensibly made for TV, Angels In America has a distinctly cinematic aesthetic that belies its ambitions to surpass its medium. Like Six Feet Under and to a lesser extent, '24', the series could easily play as a movie if not for its gargantuan running time (this one clocks in at 6 hours...). Set in Reaganite America, the central plot follows two gay men, both living in the closet, dealing with the burgeoning presence of AIDS in their day-to-day existence. The prevalin find out more...

Derek Jarman faces up to AIDS, the loss of loved ones, the breakdown of the body, blindness and his own approaching fall into the void. The constant blue screen provides a backdrop for Jarman's words, which are delivered by a host of famous voices. His eloquence, and unsentimental account of his own plight are deeply moving. A challenging and abstract film. The dvd contains Glitterbug, a 60 minute collage of Jarman's super 8 footage which he shot between 1970-1986. find out more...

Carandiru was Brazil's largest prison, a grim enclosure that worked as a brutal self-regulating microcosm of the world outside it. The film is seen thru' the eyes of a doctor who gets to know the prisoners, drug dealers, rapists, murderers, remandees et al, and we get to know some of them thru' flashbacks to their pre-prison life. This is the story of how these men's time shuddered to a halt when riot police entered the compound in October 1992 and shot dead 111 unarmed prisoners. From the direc find out more...

DRUNKS (1995)

Certification15 Our Rating

An intriguing dramatization of an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting, from beginning to end, as characters discuss their bout with the bottle. The attendees include Jim, who falls off the wagon during the meeting; Louis, who is obviously still in denial about his addiction; and Joseph, whose drinking caused a drunk-driving death. Others at the meeting, from a twenty-something slacker to a well-to-do doctor, illustrate the social and cultural diversity of those affected by this ‘legal' drug. find out more...
