    Certainly no saint but an artist who enriched our culture Unashamedly gay in a time when it was normal to be ashamed You get to read in his own words what was behind those amazing films His style is a little like Pillow Book it is short excerpts of memory, intellect and anger If you are either gay or love film it is well worth a read

    should be required reading for all gays probably a bit strong for heterosexuals but if you re really open minded you ll get some interesting things out of it.
