'Larry Kramer in Love & Anger': At 80, the film's subject reveals a complex heart

How does it feel seeing your life pass before your eyes in a documentary? "Very strange," admitted Larry Kramer, his plaintive voice a shadow of the nasal bullhorn that excoriated New York Mayor Ed Koch and President Ronald Reagan in the terrifying early days of the AIDS epidemic. The once fiery, now frail (yet still combustible) AIDS activist and writer is the heroic subject of "Larry Kramer in Love & Anger," Jean Carlomusto's affectionate though by no means hagiographic documentary. The film, which premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival, will air Monday on HBO. ESSENTIAL ARTS & CULTURE NEWSLETTER >> Get great stories delivered to...
