Format: DVD
The one-star rating given does not reflect my opinion of this wonderful film, for which many people have waited a long, long time to see in the DVD format. HOWEVER this film has been released in a cropped, pan-and-scan version, not the original widescreen version anyone in their right mind would expect at this point in the format's evolution.
New Line, shame shame SHAME on you. Buyers beware, this is not the version of this film you saw (and loved) in theatres.
And for any studios who PERSIST in releasing films in this format, c'mon, join the rest of us in the 21st century. And by all means do not expect us to actually BUY this format-edited junk.

I quote it all the time. There are so many truths that have nothing to do with sexuality but simply being human and being vulnerable and w.anting to be loved

By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER on Dec 27 2013
Format: DVD
A notable film on several levels. First, it was way ahead of the U.S. in being a relatively mainstream film that treated gay men as people of depth,
value, humor and worth making a film about. (Although there is sad irony in the fact this huge hit play took so long to make it to the screen that
AIDS had already totally altered the landscape by the time of its release. That's something the film only notes in the closing credits, and gives it a
bit of a 'rose colored glasses' hue).

But beyond any politics or social significance this is also a very well acted, funny and moving look at one man, Arnold, (played by the unique and
charismatic Harvey Firestein, who wrote the play and screenplay) as he looks for love – both romantic and familial in a sometimes very cold world.
If Firestein's performance can occasionally feel theatrical, it's also entirely appropriate for the starting-to-age drag queen performer he plays.
What's wonderful is how Firestein always keeps the humanity under Arnold's occasional flamboyance very alive, as does Anne Bancroft as his
'difficult' mother. Later in her career Bancroft could tend towards theatricality on screen as well, but she tones it down just enough to feel real
here, and anyway, lets face it, next to a drag queen, who is more innately dramatic than a Jewish mother? (I grew up with one, trust me).

Matthew Broderick and Brian Kerwin also do very good work in support, Broderick as a sexy but understated young man totally at ease with his
sexuality, and Kerwin as a confused bi- sexual trying to work out his.

This is another likeable gay themed movie that pulls at your heart strings. The cast is great and the acting is well done and makes you want more.

J'ai beaucoup aimé ce film. J'étais très content qu'il soit traduit en français.
C'est une belle histoire qui touche l'homosexualité, la bisexualité, les conflits de valeurs et la réconciliation.

Every person that I turn on to this movie absolutely loves it and eventually adds it to their dvd collections as a result. Even after watching TST many, many times (and believe it or not, it is playing now!) I still believe it is the very best gay themed movie of all time..and I have seen them all...Superb acting, laugh-out-loud funny and very touching...Bancroft and Fierstein shine!
If you are straight (or gay in some cases) and can't stand gay people, don't even bother renting or buying this film. But, regardless of your sexual orientation, if you are a mature, openminded person, and respect all people for who and what they are, you will enjoy it.
Get it. You'll love it!

Format: DVD
Finally, I have seen a gay movie which is not merely about the misery of being dumped by a gay lover or trying to come out in a family.
Torch Song Trilogy is a biographical work about the life of the protagonist drag queen, Arnold. The movie starts humourously with the mother's discovery of the son hiding in a closet and trying to beautifying himself with her make-up. The mother yelled, "What are you doing in the ---". Then the mother knew what was going on.
The movie can be basically divided into three parts (that's why it's titled trilogy) - his career as a professional drag queen (or politically correct - a female impersonator), during which he knew a bisexual man; his falling in love with a middle class boy who is still uncontaminated by the world. He, however, was sadly, killed by hateful discrimination. Finally, the movie has a touch of adopting a (gay) son and brings out the issue of gay parenting. The movie ends with a fight, not a reconciliation, between the mother and the gay son. Each part of the movie tells you the life and the bumpy road Arnold was living through at the moment. The movie does not depict it in a pitiful way, or else, it lets the plot bring out the emotio spontaneously to the audience. The dialogues are clever, symbolic and witty. The acting is professional and does not go over the top. The director deals with the fantastic scripts carefully and the final scene of Arnold holding the three most valuable things in his life in a chair is simply self-effacing.
Torch Song Trilogy is a gay classic drama. There is nothing pretentious. The movie does not ask for your pity for Arnold's tragic life, but your understanding of what he has been through.
