  • After reminding us that the AIDS crisis in the West is far from over in "The Event," Fitzgerald widened his scope with this much-needed perspective on the global dimensions the disease has achieved. Despite the importance and seriousness of the subject, there's plenty of Fitzgerald's brand of sly humor on hand, particularly in the scenes involving the Quebecoise porn industry. show more

  • If good intentions were all it took to create a decent movie, Thom Fitzgerald's 3 Needles would be some kind of masterpiece. show more

  • When 3 Needles premiered at Toronto last year, the stories were overlapping, in the style of "Babel" but without a unifying theme. It's less cumbersome as three separate stories, but they do not add up to much. show more

    I think the movie was immoral. I was asked to watch it in school and walked out in the middle of it. They had people doing the wild thing and left nothing to the immagination. I think it should be rated R and that it has no place being shown at school. It's obsceen and offensive.
