Love and Death on Long Island, the tale of author Giles De'Ath's (John Hurt) growing obsession with B-movie actor Ronnie Bostock (Jason Priestly) is the type of benign drama that will most likely be of greater appeal to those viewers who are relatively unfamiliar with gay/lesbian/bi/transgender cinema than fans of the genre. Hurt is very good, but the script, though moderately entertaining, is rather routine.

Universal has released a lackluster DVD edition of "Love and Death on Long Island" that features next to nothing in the extras department. The anamorphic transfer (1.85:1 aspect ratio) isn't finely detailed, but it is clean and clear. The soundtrack, which is Dolby 2.0, is also clear. Dialogue is all audible and easy to understand. Closed-captioned (English). The DVD is only worth buying if you're a fan of the film, otherwise rent.
