3 Needles


Canada 2005, 127 minutes
Dir. Thom Fitzgerald
In English, Mandarin, French with English subtitles
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama


Aroview: Three globally sprawling dramas about the A.I.D.S. crisis set in South Africa, China and Canada. Attempting to replicate the effect TRAFFIC had on the drugs crisis, it is visually stunning at times, emphasising the vast scale of the project rather than a perhaps necessary hard-handed approach.

Lucy Liu is embroiled in Chinese blood-donor complications, Shawn Ashmore plays a closet Canadian porn star with the virus and Chloe Sevigny deals with religious convictions as a nun in South Africa. A common endeavour of family protection shows throughout the universal rituals of each story.
