Product Description

Product Description

A smalltown American arrives in New York in 1969 eager to become 'involved'. He meets a group of drag-queens and goes along to their favourite bar - Stonewall. The Mafia proprieter pays the police protection money so they do not raid the bar, but that night the bar is raided and the young man is arrested. He starts an affair with a Puerto Rican drag-queen and also becomes involved with a group of conservative homosexuals - the Mattachines. His two worlds inevitably collide as he tries to influence the Mattachines to make more positive action for their cause, the Stonewall bar is raided again, and a riot ensues signalling the dawn of the modern gay liberation movement.

Format: DVD
Some strange looking drag queens, but this is a very good movie. Fair amount of eye candy too. There are some funny parts but considering this is about the Stonewall Riots, or rather, one person's perspective of the riots, there are a number of serious scenes that make you wish you were there to clobber the cops yourself. Definately worth owning and watching with your friends, even straight friends.

At times this is a harrowing film, but well worth watching, given the more enlightened times we live in, to gain some insight into the struggles we've faced throughout time.

What a wonderful film this is, giving an insight into a historic event, while the central romance has wonderful chemistry between Guillermo Diaz and Frederick Weller. Both get their characters very well, La Miranda conveying the sense of hurt she has gone through before the film starts without going into it, and Matty Dean making an excellent country-lad foil, with intellectual aspirations that lead him somewhat astray, perhaps. The lip-synching is also very well done, with adroit cutting between musical sequences and the action, and the crowd scenes are well handled. The director Nigel Finch has got round the budget limitations so well that you feel constraints have worked in the film's favour. A secondary romance, between a tough-but-kind drag queen and straight-acting bar owner, is a little underdeveloped given the way it goes, and the film doesn't quite pull off the sense of history in the making with the weight of Milk. On the other hand, it has possibly more magic, a more delightful sense of camp, and Matty Dean looks fantastic in his jeans - he really is incredibly attractive (what a bottom!), and the setting somehow accentuates it. Not that the drag queens are at all lacking in glamour ... there is a wonderful moment when a Marilyn lookalike sashays just ahead of the police with their riot shields, her manner and gestures priceless. They are also well contrasted with the more sober political types who were making tentative forays into activism prior to the riots, but were really at pains to appear as ordinary as possible. The overall picture is very colourful and vibrant, but with a sense of real pain and injustice too - a sort of double effect which is very well brought off.Read more ›

This is quite frankly one of the best films made!

The cast are perfect, from the brassy latino drag lead, to the red neck-hick boy next door. The musical idents that the film uses to switch between scenes are excellent, and the spirit of the film is delivered without being preachy.

AMAZING!!

Amazon, this is not a multiregion DVD. It is region 1, as it is from America. Beware anyone like me who thinks it will play on their region 2 DVD player. That aside, I am not returning it as I can at least play it on my computer DVD player- and it is a blooming great film!
