There is rage and courage in all of his actions, and above all a decisive conviction that whatever time he has left will be used to make the world pay attention by any means necessary. Sean dances, kisses, caresses, fights, screams, and loves without reservations. Death is an inherent villain in this story, but rather than letting sentimentality take over, Beats Per Minute is a vibrant portrait of resilience. Ethereal cinematography captures dancing sequences as if they were luminous dreamscapes, and uses them as transitions into intimate scenes. During the rest of the film, the camera is an active member of the action and forces the viewers to be immersed in the cause. Sean was condemned by the disease and doubly condemned because of the place that society assigned him at the time as a gay man.
