One of the first films to deal with AIDS - released in the same year as Parting Glances.
As Is was originally a stage play (in the same year as The Normal Heart).
So, historically it can't be ignored.
It has more of a raw edge than PG...but, pulls away from the sentimentality of TNH - it is very verbose, very theatrical which some will disapprove of - but, the anger and the confusion remains intact.
It's a character study of perspectives - it may just skim the surface...but, no-one really knew what was going on then...
An important and, sadly, forgotten film.
Story of a gay man who finds out he has aids and how people react.
