Running Time: 65
Director: Mike Donner
Company: All Worlds Video
Cast: Tony Valenzuela, Doug Jeffries, Marco Antonio, Jean Riviera, Nik Angelo, Matthew Easton, Sam Crockett
Critical Rating: AAA
Genre: Gay and Bi
This well-meaning video dealing with a handsome, HIV-positive gay man's difficulties in pursuing love and honesty in relationships is perhaps too earnest for its own good - but it is an extremely important first step nonetheless. Valenzuela, HIV-positive in real life, is (safely) paired with Jeffries, Crockett, Angelo and Easton. However, only the Jeffries scene really sizzles.
Director Donner and All Worlds are to be commended for rolling the dice on a risky subject, and for casting a positive model in the lead role.
