At age 19, Stratos committed a crime of passion. He spent half his life in prison, where underground boss Leonidas took him under his wing. One day during a rival gang attack, Leonidas saved his life. Stratos never forgot this. A free man now, Stratos works the night shift at a bakery workshop, a far cry from the killing contracts he executes by day. He gives away all his money to spring Leonidas out of prison, funding an escape plan managed by Leo’s brother, Yorgos. The fulfillment of his debt is the only thing that matters to Stratos, everything else is indifferent and he lives detached, surrounded by ghosts and fallacies.

The most popular approach is to have characters look down microscopes and shout at each other, but And the Band Played On uses the innovative approach of having characters shout at each other about how they don't have microscopes to look down. This is mostly effective, but it does wear thin after a while. Overall, the film is a little too earnest and dry, with all of the gay characters being irritatingly worthy or mad with toxoplasmosis, but it did convince me to hate Reagan not just for his economic and foreign policy, but also his failure to fight AIDS.

Seductive without being sexy... these items and the women wearing them are a beautiful contrast to the rough, stark beauty of the titular rock. Young women, tied up by clothing and propriety - who doesn't love a girls' boarding school movie? - undress a bit and unleash cosmic and natural forces which cannot help but devour them whole.

"Stillwater" the band in the film reminded me of every concert I went to during that era. The clothes, the music, the partying, the fanatical devotion to music, the record stores, all there. I found the characters extremely appealing, even some of the nastier ones - once again, it reminded me of my lost youth. Maybe not the best recommondation for a movie, but if you want to experience the early 70's, this should suffice.
