Rock Hudson's Home Movies
Dir. Mark Rappaport (1992).
Mark Rappaport rereads the Rock Hudson text (taking moments from Hudson vehicles that, in one way or another, confirm or denyand thus reconfirmthe actor's concealed homosexuality). Addressing the medium no less than the actor, the movie is an act of criticism
and love, investing the image Rock Hudson with a pathos only barely evident in Hudson's original imitation of life.
