In Conclusion
Some of the dramatics may be a bit dated and the directorial technique somewhat busy and obvious, but The Boys in the Band still has the power to touch and to inform even decades after its sensationalism has died away. It’s a pleasure to have the movie available at last in a more than decent DVD edition. Matt Hough Charlotte, NC

Thanks for the review Matt. Although dated and depressing, this was a breakthrough in the way that gay men were portrayed on film. I've been waiting on this DVD release for a long time!

Thanks for the review! I found the commentary really interesting. I tend to not be a fan of films where folks are miserable, so I respect this film more than I whole heatedly love it, but I think it is pretty amazing and some of the cast do amazing work... There is a documentary Making The Boys that is also available on DVD that is very worth watching as well. Netflixing the documentary and seeing the back story on this one made me decide I needed to own both..

Paramount, please release DRAGONSLAYER on Blu-ray
