"“The movies await permission from the world-famous general public before they will portray gays as a fact of life,” Russo rightly complains... but there are times when he appears to be awaiting permission from both the general public and gay lib before portraying film as a facet of art rather than of sociology, commerce, or cosmetics. - Jonathan Rosenbaum "

" Synopsis: Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's documentary chronicles the way movies have portrayed homosexuals for the past 100 years and how these images, both positive and negative, have helped shape America's attitudes toward gays.
