Jean Carlomusto's sympathetic portrait of the writer and activist Larry Kramer premieres June 29th at 9PM ET on HBO, but you can see the trailer right now. Larry Kramer in Love & Anger is a fascinating look at an important figure in LGBT history, and it's also a mesmerizing sketch of gay life over the past 40 years. It's most effective in showing how the Kramer-founded Gay Men's Health Crisis and, later, ACT UP, dragged gay men out of the closet and into political life. The documentary was one of our favorite movies at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
