    A great documentary on the AIDS Crisis from survivors is "We Were Here". I saw it earlier this year on Cable. It might be available on Netflix or other similar services. Here is a link to the trailer....... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6LOiK5cf2k

    I read this review of the film today. I kind of agree with the writer about Jared Leto's performance.

    I thought this film was very good and that Matthew McConaughey's portrayal of Woodroof was amazing (and that he should win an Oscar for this role). I really like this director, Jean-Marc Vallée, for his films' characters and stories. I loved the costume and set design and read that the film was shot in only 25 days. That's amazing for all the details. I also like the music in the film, from the trailer song, You Ain't Alone by Alabama Shakes, to the soundtrack including: T. Rex, My Morning Jacket, Fitz and the Tantrums, Tegan and Sara, and Jared Leto's band. If you download this soundtrack from ITunes/ Project RED, 10% of the proceeds go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS (and remember Dec 1 is World AIDS Day). Thanks Kevin for organizing.

    The movie was very poignant and certainly thought provoking. Matthew McConaughey's performance was terrific and he seems to have really matured as an actor. The subject matter hit home for me since my wife and I lived in the West Village in NYC during the 80's and experienced first hand the devastation of the AIDS epidemic. We lost many friends and neighbors in those years and were totally frustrated by the inaction of the Reagan Administration. The US Public Health System was overwhelmed by this epidemic and it seemed that it was the advocacy of the lay community which really turned the tide against this dreadful disease.

    This was one of the most moving films I have seen this year. I was rooting for Ron. He is a man that I would in real life probably judged negatively and maybe he would have deserved this until he had to face death and his past life choices. But he became an inspiration in choosing to live life and fight for what is right, on many levels. Great acting and story.

    I'm looking forward to seeing this film but the Ukulele Orchestra is in town so I'll have to catch it another time. Y'all have fun!
