Ambulance Companies Movie Reviews
My assessment of a great film is that it makes you relate to a world that is completely foreign to you. Being a straight woman with a circle of gay, male friends, this was not a subject I was unfamilliar with. I have, however, screened this film for several friends who weren't so familliar with gay culture and the issues that surround it. They were astounded at how powerfully this film conveyed the lifestyle and terror in a way that never bordered on melodrama.
There are two scenes that are gripping, one of which comes near the end and I won't destroy it's intent by revealing it here. The first scene that will just leave you numb is Bruce Davison's character at his lover's side urging him to 'just rest,' as he essentially begs him to die. It is quietly and poigniantly stoic and will break your heart. Davison's Oscar nod for this performance was WELL deserved.
This is a movie that requires an open mind, but if you are looking for a film that will give you an enlightening view of a lifestyle you don't live, this is a great film for you and will not disappoint.
First of all I really don't care too much for how good a video is as I understand goth/industrial bands are not rich and can't always make high end videos (they were all horrible anyway), however what I do care about is SOUND QUALITY. The sound on this DVD is just utter crap, I couldn't play one video off this DVD at the club, not one! Not only was the sound quality horrible the song/band selection needs a lot of help (for a DJ or club anyway) as they had to of picked the most boring songs possible for this!
As a fan of this type of music and a DJ who plays it, I would recommend hanging on to your money.
