Recommended to Frank by: 1
The most stimulating, entertaining, thought-provoking collection of essays I've read in years. A true "companion" to the HBO documentary directed by Jeffrey Schwarz. Reel One is entertainment writings, including film reviews and celebrity interviews; Reel Two (pictured) is political, gay-lib and AIDS-related writings.

Vito Russo was an early gay activist whose work at the Museum of Modern Art and love of movies led to the ground breaking book The Celluloid Closet which takes a look at the coded representations of gay men and women in the movies. He was also a vocal AIDS activist who help to found both GLAAD and ACT UP in response to the Reagan Administrations inaction at what is still a global epidemic.
