DVD reviews: ‘How to Survive a Plague’

HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE The director David France and his crew have sculpted years of old broadcast news stories and home video into a narrative of an era that is impressionistic in its scope but coherent in its feeling. This Oscar nominee for best documentary is alive — hot, really — with the political seething at the federal government’s failure to help combat the spread of AIDS with effective medical treatments.
