Movie Diary 10/11/2012

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. Along with the film’s value at bringing this era back to light, it’s a reminder of how documentaries of the post-1980 world will benefit from the fact that everybody was videotaping everything all the time. (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.
