Pros: music, cast, clear DVD detail     Cons: none for me     The Bottom Line:   I think they meant it  When they said you can't buy love  Now I know you can rent it  A new lease you are, my love  ~Jonathan Larson     I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to see when I started Rent but I had heard so much about it I figured it was going to be a good experience.

Having seen RENT on the stage with the eardrum assaulting, miked sound from each performer's head mike coupled with the small but deadly 'pit band' this viewer rented this film with trepidation. And after paying close attention to the transfer of the play to the screen little has change in feelings about this work.    Loosely based on Puccini's 'La Boheme' (with some direct quotes in the score) this musical drama has much to say about AIDS, kids as artists, survival, all forms …
