Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt

Common Threads: Stories from the Quilt

In the late 1970s, a mysterious new disease began infecting and killing gay men. Common Threads tells the powerful story of the first decade of the AIDS epidemic, as told through the lives of five very diverse individuals who shared a common fate. Using the monumental NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt as its central metaphor, the film weaves together personal memories and television news stories to expose the U.S. government’s failure to respond to the growing epidemic, and the vibrant protest movement that was born as a result. From the Olympic athlete to the inner-city recovering drug addict, from the conservative naval commander to the New York gay activist to the 11-year-old suburban boy with haemophilia, the film uses intimate details to tell an epic story of love, loss, anger and healing.

Laney C (gb) wrote: I started to watch it twice in different parts. Way too depressing!

Nate S (kr) wrote: This is fantastic film and has grown to be one of my all time favorites. Just towing the line of "Too scary for kids" without taking it too far. Wonderful animation and characters will keep viewers of any age entertained.

Jams G (gb) wrote: huh? nice oregon scenery but thats about it.

Francisco L (ru) wrote: This movie can be a little predictable, but its great cast and the original story are enough to forget that. Final Destination tries to transmit the message that all of we have a destiny and that we can't escape to it, but this attempt to transmit the message is destroyed by its weak screenplay, because all of we know that the water won't follow a specific path on the floor escaping to the laws of physic. Interesting.

Jo A (ca) wrote: This has absolutely nothing to do with being Polish and it drags so bad.

Nik M (kr) wrote: A remarkable sci-fi film with blends of romance, action, and drama, CEotTK is investigative, intelligent, and provokes a dismissal of military alien plot structures. It's effective and inviting with its drama, and its special effects are impressive and inventive.

Anywho, I'm glad I waited for it to be available for rent on iTunes, because if I had wasted my money in theatres, I'd be pissed! This guy has no real actual problems. He's just a selfish fuck who drove all the women in his life away because they weren't what he wanted them to be. To appease his crippling self inflicted pain, he falls in love with a fucking OS. An OS who can apparently fall in love with 641 other fucking people. Because she's deep and other worldly. Because she's NOT REAL!!!! Cinematically, sure, the movie was interesting to look at, but why in the hell are all the white man's pants up over their belly buttons? Young, old, it didn't matter. It's like white people left alone to be around other white people will accept almost anything. And even when they come to the conclusion that they're actually selfish asshats, there are still in their upper middle class bubble of bullshit. The lack of color is disheartening, but honestly, the movie would've been over the moment you told your black friend you're dating an OS. That shit is weird, and there's no getting around it. This movie was terrible. I want my 2 hours back.
