Longtime Companion follows the lives of a small circle of friends from the first mention of the disease in the New York Times in 1981. First referred to as “Gay-Related-Immune-Disorder,” we watch the effect of the disease as it devastates the lives of our protagonists. Jumping between Manhattan and Fire Island, vignettes carry us from the it-couldn’t-happen-to-me mentality of the early days of the disease to the invasive effect it has had on all of our lives, today. The title of the film comes from the New York Times’ refusal to acknowledge homosexual relationships in their obituary section during this period. Instead, survivors were referred to as “Longtime Companions” of the deceased.
Longtime Companion is the most beautiful movies of year 1989 Most movies, even the greatest ones, evaporate like mist once you’ve returned to the real world; they leave memories behind, but their reality fades free quickly. But not Longtime Companion. This movie literally has everything. This is a movie you can watch online with any crowd of people, and everyone will enjoy it at least a little.
It is a movie that truly knows what it is and wastes not even a second in conveying what that is. Every single performance is incredible. Not to mention that it has the best music in a movie. Longtime Companion stand up to the test of time.
Sure there are classic movies which everyone like, and they are great. But Longtime Companion is just non stop awesome from start to finish. I decided not to load the Longtime Companion file here so everyone can now see it for free online.
