    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 This movie beats you over the head with its themes.

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

    It’s a testament to George’s confident handling of the material... that while it touches on many elements of the national crisis... the project avoids feeling like a bulletin-board movie.
  3. 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.
