Positively Naked: Looking at Bodies (and Peeking Into Souls)
“Arlene Donnelly Nelson and David Nelson’s moving 38-minute documentary, to be shown tonight on Cinemax to commemorate World AIDS Day, captures the moment gracefully.


Like a lot of their fellow human beings, some of these men and women are a little apprehensive about revealing their naked bodies to total strangers, not to mention the world. One man says he is much more nervous about showing his distended abdomen (a side effect of medical treatment) than his penis. Many seem nervous at first but soon relax into the equality that nakedness creates. Not surprisingly, one man reports “a sense of camaraderie” in the experience.” ~ Anita Gates, NY Times TV review
