Viewers got a sneak peek of Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman's latest short film The Battle of amfAR yesterday afternoon (World AIDS Day) on HBO2 and reviews are already popping up. Queerty assures readers that amfAR "isn't another stuffy history lesson," with Liz Taylor candidly sharing her thoughts and opinions from the start of the film. Vogue calls the film "enlightening," listing it as a documentary "you can't miss." Pop Matters' Film and TV Editor Cynthia Fuchs offers a positive analysis of the film, commenting on Krim's "infectious smile" and Taylor's ability to "wield her celebrity like a weapon."
