what do you think of "Philadelphia" 's (1993) treament of the subject?
Personally I preferred "An Early Frost". I felt that not enough was shown of Hank's character's life before he caught AIDS, and he remained fairly 'behind the scenes' for most of the movie (unless that was part of the 'message' - ie that this is happening to people right now although they might not be visible to you).

And there isn't much of a clear change in Denzel's character (all we get is a look in his eyes during that 'listening to opera music scene').
I suppose it was 'adventurous back in the day' ( if that's much of an excuse).


Yeah, stay out of the closet, keep on wearing condoms, and remember barebacking is homophobic!
Thanks Augusto!
Oh that guy's so gorgeous!...
