Movie Info

From the onset of the AIDS epidemic, author Larry Kramer emerged as a fiery activist, an Old Testament-style prophet full of righteous fury who denounced both the willful inaction of the government and the refusal of the gay community to curb potentially risky behaviors. Co-founder of both the service organization Gay Men's Health Crisis and the direct action protest group ACT UP, Kramer was vilified by some who saw his criticism to be an expression of self-hatred, while lionized by others who credit him with waking up the gay community - and, eventually, the government and medical establishment- to the devastation of the disease.

Critic Reviews for Larry Kramer in Love and Anger

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

It's thoroughly admiring... framing [Kramer's] excesses as a necessary response to circumstances and suggesting that on the big questions he was always right.

June 29, 2015 | Full Review…

It's a well-done, if familiar, portrait of a man and his times.

June 29, 2015 | Full Review…

A generous salute to the unfiltered firebrand whose impassioned outspokenness helped break institutional inaction during the AIDS crisis.

February 1, 2015 | Full Review…

What's remarkable is the way that it is a glimpse into a certain time and place, a certain subculture, the atrocities they faced, the attention they didn't get, and the ways in which [Larry] Kramer helped and hindered the cause.
