[3 Needles]

I went to 3 Needles a) because Thom Fitzgerald also directed one of my all-time favorite movies: The Hanging Garden b) because he had discussed it when he was in town a few years ago for The Event (Don McKellar fans represent!) and c) because of the cast.

It tells three stories about the transmission of HIV: one in Africa, one in China, and one in Canada. It was intense & hard to watch in points because of several scenes of rape, and also because of people doing very bad things for -very- human reasons.

Thanks to really dreadful projection issues, including several minutes of dropped sound, I'm going to want to see it again when it comes out on DVD. Need, maybe, more than want. I'm curious if some of the issues with cohesiveness, etc, will be remedied by seeing it properly.
