Movie Reviews

Reviewed by amhutchinson 10/10

I&#39;ve read far too many reviews of this movie that just don&#39;t seem toget it, even if they did enjoy the film. The purpose of the movie wasprecisely to show how the AIDS epidemics reached the stages that it didbefore anything was done, and how the Doctors, researchers and even thefederal government and the CDC contributed as much to the progressionof the disease as they did to discovering it. To state that thispresentation, while not quite showing as much regarding the sufferingof the early AIDS patients in some way makes &quot;less of an impact&quot; thanit may have otherwise, is to basically state that you have no conceptof what the purpose of the movie was! Anyone who actually WAS aroundwhen the AIDS crisis began can remember getting blood tests forHepatitis, then something called HTLV III, then HIV, all with noexplanation or understanding as to why. And that was only if you weregiving blood! They misconceptions and fears passed on from scientiststhemselves made it far more difficult to actually understand what itwas and how to be safe. This movie explained far better than any otherresource exactly what was going on during a time when those of us whoWERE alive were getting no answers at all.<br><br>So, if you&#39;re going to comment on a movie, make sure you have some ideaof what the purpose of the film is before questioning the point of viewof the film. This is quite possibly one of the most important films ofthe past twenty years BECAUSE of its point of view.

And The Band Played On is an extremely powerful movie. This movieshould be required viewing in any high school. The fact that it took soincredibly long for the then higher powers to admit to the existence ofAIDS is stunning and sad. The performances throughout the movie weremoving and effective. I thought that Sir Ian McKellan and Richard Gererepresented respectfully the signs of strength and fear.<br><br>I was also disheartened to learn that throughout this tragedy, therewere individuals who might have been more concerned with helping andprotecting their own reputation and agenda as well as accepting thecredit for their work in breaking down point by point the disease knownas AIDS. Alan Alda as Dr. Gallo was fascinating. In fact all of theperformances from Matthew Modine and Richard Gere to Steve Martin andBD Wong were great. The most important thing here though is the historyof this disease and the hope that we can learn from it.

I read this book in high school in the late 80's just as it wasreleased. The book was excellent and gave a great educational lesson onHIV and AIDS. The movie was just as good. I was really touched at theend when &quot;The last song&quot; by Elton John was playing. The movie gave agreat time-line of the virus.<br><br>It is so terrifying to think AIDS has actually been around sinceprobably 1959 when a blood sample from a man from the Congo had died ofa mysterious illness, and tests run on the blood sample today showed hedid indeed have AIDS. The movie was very touching, this whole topicleaves a lump in my throat. I was 13 when AIDS had started making thenews and in 1985 or 1986 my dad had a blood transfusion. We spendmonths worrying if he had contracted HIV. Thank god he got clean bloodand he dodged a bullet, unlike the 25,000 people in the 70 and 80's whoreceived tainted blood.<br><br>I got teary eyed when an HIV+ guy in the movie says &quot;This is not apolitical issue. This is a health issue. This is not a gay issue. Thisis a human issue. And I do not intend to be defeated by it. I came heretoday in the hope that my epitaph would not read that I died of redtape.&quot; <br><br>The predictions were accurate. The scientists predicted there would be40 million people worldwide infected with HIV by the turn of thecentury and that number has proved to be pretty much dead on,literally.
