Definitely dated ($45 per week and cravats)...
A significant glimpse of pre-AIDS issues...it is a difficult piece to watch - typical bitchy queens taking it all too far.
It is witty, catty and memorable - and, for its time, quite remarkable.
Friedkin is a director of note - The Exorcist, Cruising and an Oscar for The French Connection.
Sadly, most of the actors have died, many succumbed to AIDS.
In truth, it is a timeless piece, it far outshines its progenies, The Broken Hearts Club et al.
May those that took part be remembered...
It's Harold's birthday, and his closest friends throw him a party at Michael's apartment. Among Harold's presents is "Cowboy", since Harold may have trouble finding a cute young man on his own now that he's getting older. As the party progresses the self-deprecating humor of the group takes a nasty turn as the men become drunker. Climaxed by a cruel telephone "game" where each man must call someone and tell him (or her?) of his love for them.
