And the Curtain Closed (film #4 in the Indie Section of Movieflix ( [Category: Outtakes & Obscurities]

A young man waits anxiously for the results of his HIV test and we get to hear his innermost thoughts, which tell us that his possible exposure was due to cheating on his wife. Talk about regrets. This is rather gutwrenching to watch, yet my empathy was undercut somewhat by the fact that the guy seems so priveleged and his transgression was an act of gross irresponsibility. It also is rather obvious in spots. Still, it does stir some emotion, which is more than I can say for a lot of the other Indie films on Movieflix.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: *. Overall Rating: **.
