Sex Is

Genre: Gay and Lesbian, Documentary; Director: Marc Huestis; MPAA Rating: Unrated

More like Sex Was…, this extremely frank document of the sex lives of gay men shows, with both compassion and incisiveness, how AIDS changed an entire lifestyle for a subculture. Sex Is… is also very much about what being gay now means. The interviewees range from porn star to minister, young to old, articulate to inexpressive. Funny, sweet, sad, and often more than a little scary, this picture will someday serve as a time capsule, to which a future generation might respond with both fascination and disbelief. B+
