How to Survive a Plague (David French, 2012). Documentary account of the fierce, in-your-face efforts of ACT UP to agitate for AIDS action in the 1980s and early 90s.

(full review 10/19)
At What a Feeling!, the Eighties-ness continues with a 1986 review of Menahem Golan’s ripped-from-the headlines saga, The Delta Force.
