Editorial Reviews

About to be shipped off to Vietnam, four young U.S. Army recruits are forced to confront their own prejudices when it is revealed that one of them is homosexual.

Based on his own award-winning Broadway play, David Rabe wrote the screenplay that has been masterfully directed by Academy Award winner Robert Altman(M.A.S.H., Gosford Park, Short Cuts, The Player). The film stars Matthew Modine (Full Metal Jacket), Mitchell Lichtenstein, Michael Wright (Oz), George Dzundza (Crimson Tide), Guy Boyd and David Alan Grier in his first onscreen role. Winner of 6 Golden Lions at the Venice Film Festival.

Customer Reviews

Very good performances from all actors, especially by Michael Wright as Carlyle.
Daniel L. Miley
I found the plot line dramatic and compelling, but not necessarily an accurate representation of "how it was back then".
R. M. Beauchesne
The setting is an army barracks in which the men will at any moment be sent overseas for active war duty.

The following is my original comment which I posted to im[...] on 20th October 2003. You'll notice that some of my lines have been directly lifted by Amos Lassen for his 7th Nov 2009 Amazon review (I'll take that as a compliment):

There is no other film that deals so confrontingly with homophobia - and with honesty.

It's a deliberately pressured and closed set, but careful editing softens the effect of the confined space. As in Hitchcock's "Rope", the camera never leaves the room, so the viewer feels caged, while the characters can come and go.

The setting is an army barracks in which the men will at any moment be sent overseas for active war duty. The characters have no choice but to negotiate how much they want to know or to accept about each other.

Long before "don't ask - don't tell" became official US Forces policy, society in general had enforced rigid control over how open any homosexual could be - and Service Personnel have always held the worst reputation for homophobia.

So when Richie flaunts his complete disregard for machismo and swishes around the barracks, he's making one hell of bold statement. He teases Billy mercilessly with come ons, and Billy does his best to call Richie's bluff.

"Streamers" is about the truly dramatic consequences of censored communication. It's a gripping, demanding, powerful and very satisfying film that leaves your head spinning and your heart racing.

You practically need a de-briefing session afterwards, but "Streamers" is certainly one of the most memorable of dramatic movie experiences - on par with "A Clockwork Orange".

The performance by the entire cast is impeccable.

On the big screen it was potent and powerful as any film I had seen. The tension created kept me on the edge of my seat. Maybe as a gay man I perceived something of the conflict between myself and this rigid frigid military environment that crept into many a nighmare of mine. It had a live stage feel to it. Many emotions and personal historys were left up to the audience to interject, kind of compressing many diverse backgrounds into a short though volitale interaction. It remains one of my favorite films and I would very much like to see it on dvd.

I stumbled across this film on a lazy weekend a few years ago while watching the television and have been waiting for the DVD ever since. While those who are inclined will take from this film what they identify most with, I feel like there is something here for even those who do not identify with alternative gender identity's. As a veteran who never went to war I connected with the characters in a way that is inherently subjective. I found the interconnectedness of the situation these characters found themselves to be in to be most interesting, the boredom of military life without all the distractions civilian life has to offer in a training environment, and proverbial melting pot of class, race, gender (not sex), and social status. This was as close to the real (feel) of a military training environment as I have found in film yet. That is not to say there are not big differences, but the social situation is what I am referring to. The acting in this film is superb, and I think it touches on some important socio-political issues of the referenced time period, namely the controversial war and its draft, rampant substance abuse within the U.S. Army during that time including training facilities, acceptance of homosexual identity/behavior (coming to an important pass in the Obama admistration policy as I write this), race relations, class issues (such as upper-middle class from Manhattan enlist while the working class and black were drafted).

Ultimately this film is intentionally left open to interpretation, and I do not feel like it was an open criticism of war or the military, simply commentary. And to those who feel like the sergeants acting like fools was not realistic enough, I encourage you to spend time off with those in the enlisted ranks and I think your in for a surprise.

Format: VHS Tape
Ever since I read "Hurlyburly" about five years ago, I have been a fan of David Rabe. When I became aware that "Streamers," possibly his best play, was made into a film, I wasted no time in renting it. I found the it to be true to the original script, with minor additions that do nothing to help or hinder the play's dramatic impact. The plot concerns the interaction of six men in a desolate army barracks. It is only days (weeks?) before the men are to be shipped out to vietnam, where they will, most likely, die. This tentative, chilling circumstance is the impetus for the story's action. The central characters are Billy, a moralizing, confused college graduate, Roger, a street smart black man, Richie, who is an uninhibited homosexual and Carlyle, a lonely and paranoid psychopath. The diverse nature of these individuals makes symbiosis difficult, and their respective tensions and prejudices culminate in a nihilistic and violent explosion that metaphorically represents the conflict in vietnam, and the conflict inherent in mankind. Streamers is an intelligent, claustrophobic and highly disturbing film that I emphatically reccommend to any who appreciate good cinema.
