Need to Stick With ItBy a customer from Salisbury, England , 27 Mar 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I agree with some of the other reviewers that the first twenty minutes of this are so incredibly awful that it's tempting to turn it off. However, I'd seen the original film, Nighthawkes, which it documents, and stuck with it. It's a rewarding experience if you are the least bit interested in gay history. The director of Nighthawkes describes his experiences trying to get that, very autobiographical, movie made, by telling the story of his own life and coming out. It's fascinating stuff.
The look of the film is pretty dire: terribly seventies with shaky handheld, grainy camera work. But this was how they made Nighthawkes, and most of this film is made up of the deleted scenes from that.
Anyone enjoying the freedoms gays have now ought to watch this. It sets what we have achieved so far into context.

Too LongBy OscarFreak (484 reviews) from London , 26 Oct 2011This was a 60 - 65 minute film padded out to 91 minutes, and regret to say it looked its age. The only thing going for it is as a social document on how far acceptance has moved on in the 20 years since it was made.
Shows just HOW FAR we have comeBy a customer from Derbyshire UK , 31 Oct 2009Shows how bad things used to be for gay people- and why not to take todays attitudes for granted.
Worth watching for historical and political reasons-but its not really what you sit down to watch with a can for an entertaining Saturday night in!
Its appeal is going to be to a very specific audience- and even then-could be viewed as 'boring'
Same boringBy a customer from Halesowen , 11 Feb 2008Same boring as NightHawks
3 Stars for effortBy a customer from Bolton, Lancashire , 21 Jan 2007I could'nt quite get into this movie but it was worth a watch on a boring night and we are able to keep it on to the end without getting bored.
Had a weird ending for me which was disappointing and let this movie down sadly.
