"Consider it solidarity, one faggot to another."

That fancy WASP doctor? "Persuade him or he'll kill you."

Published on Nov 14, 2010





Nurse Belize (Jeffrey Wright) unwillingly attends hospitalized Roy Cohn (Al Pacino), who looks very sick. Roy insults him and makes racist remarks; Belize threatens to mishandle Roy's IV and leave him in terrible pain unless he quiets down. Roy does so, partly because he notices Belize's proficient, almost painless insertion of the IV, but then boasts that he is immune to pain, that he can make anyone do anything he wants. Belize turns to leave in quiet disgust, but, with sudden sincerity, Roy begs not to leave him alone. A brutal realist, Roy asks Belize if he will die soon. Belize tells him he probably will, and Roy, surprisingly, thanks him for his candor. Because of this candor, Belize surprises himself and suddenly advises Roy two things: not to let his doctor perform tomorrow's radiation treatment for the KS lesions because it will kill him outright, and not to let the hospital give him placebo drugs for 'doubleblind' testing purposes, which will also kill him. Roy asks why he is helping him even though he hates him. Belize, with a very uncomic eye wink, replies he is doing it out of 'faggot solidarity', implying Roy is a fellow homosexual. Shouting, Roy scorns him, but he takes his advice and blackmails Martin Heller (Brian Markinson) into providing a private stash of AZT.

Magic Goop: "I'm a health professional, I know what I'm doing--"

Prior Walter (Justin Kirk) is visited in his hospital room by Belize (Jeffrey Wright), a black ex-drag queen and registered nurse who is also his former lover and dear friend. Prior wants boyfriend Louis Ironson (Ben Shenkman) by his side, but he is nowhere to be found. When he calms down, he tells Belize he has been hearing voices--or rather, a  voice--but begs Belize not to tell the doctor since he also finds it sexually arousing and does not want a different medication that would silence the voice. Belize tells Prior that no matter what, he will be by his side. As soon as Belize leaves, Prior resumes an interrupted conversation with the voice; it tells him that it is not a herald of death but a messenger sent to prepare him to perform a great work.

Really. This afternoon I reminded myself to put up my "Out of Office" message on Outlook for my vacation before I left the office, and then I thought, "Oh, wait. It's only Thursday!"  laugh

Well, that would be one way to avoid work for an extra day!

Hiya BetterMost friends.






Yup, I was taken to that point today.

Thankfully, after the incident, she was "stressed" and went out to lunch, so I was able to cool off.  laugh

Friday can't come soon enough!

"I'm leaving--"



Angels in America HBO FILMS (2003)
PART ONE: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES ACT 2, SCENE 9
Quartet (A Simultaneous Shared Reality)

directed by  Mike Nichols

Published on Nov 18, 2011





Louis Ironson (Ben Shenkman) confronts sick boyfriend Prior Walter (Justin Kirk) in Prior's hospital room, announcing he is leaving him as, simultaneously, Joe Pitt (Patrick Wilson) confronts his wife Harper Pitt (Mary-Louise Parker) in their apartment, confirming that he is gay, that he has no sexual feelings for her and never did.

Louis flees the hospital room and Harper apparently flees her apartment via the open refrigerator door, with the help of her imaginary friend/accomplice Mr. Lies (Jeffrey Wright).

The underlying soundtrack/score segment by composer Thomas Newman is called "Quartet"






Aside from length, the greatest difficulty in adapting “Angels in America” for the screen—the small screen, at that—is capturing its theatricality. In the theatre, there are times when two scenes are played simultaneously, and when a character from one scene walks into another on the other side of the stage. This presents Nichols with a kind of physics problem; what was represented in space now has to be represented in time, with one scene following another. Nichols wisely avoids using a split screen; what he does is move back and forth between scenes, and to a great extent this technique works--
