  1. What is remarkable about "Life Support" is how it avoids every pitfall of the standard issue-based TV film and, indeed, of most TV films, period.

    While the social work done by Life Support is exemplary, the production more than stands on its own as entertainment.

    This movie beats you over the head with its themes. Nearly every single scene is about how the main character was on crack and has AIDS, and This movie beats you over the head with its themes. Nearly every single scene is about how the main character was on crack and has AIDS, and any scene that isn't about both of these things is about one of them. I understand the movie is about drug use, disease, forgiveness, etc. but the plot makes these characters seem two dimensional. I hope if I ever contract AIDS that every conversation in my life from that point on will not be about how I have AIDS. Full Review »

    I will watch it again just to enjoy all the performances. By far the best television I have seen in a long time.
