|08.11.07||Netflix|| HBO docudrama on the emergence of, scientific research on, and political in-fighting about AIDS. Apparently the book's better but the movie's good enough to get the gist of things.|
Scary stuff. It's weird to think what I was doing in the early 80s while all of this was going on (playing with Star Wars toys mostly). I suppose it's just as weird for people older than me to think about growing up with sex being a life-threatening risk as it is for me to picture a world before AIDS: those lucky 60s/70s bastards who got to pop some penicillin and rock all night. Sigh... but then again, they didn't have anything as cool as Star Wars toys to play with either, so I guess it's a trade-off.
