5.0 out of 5 stars Superb! Wonderfully done! July 15 2009
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I heard all the hype and excitement over this movie, but still wasn't quite sure it was as good as everyone was saying. I was wrong. It is! A wonderfully strong movie - cinematography, casting, historical accuracy, and the wonderful interweaving of current film and archival film. It was an enthralling, emotionally engaging work. A definite 'A" in my list! Certainly warrants the inclusion of Best Picture nominee - an absolutely wonderful film.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Controversial but Wonderful Masterpiece Sept. 29 2010
By Stella Carrier TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This is a very dramatic and heartwrenching movie to watch, but a great one that is based on a true story. Sean Penn plays a very good Harvey Milk. Harvey Milk was a very charismatic and intelligent gay rights advocate. James Franco plays Scott, someone who was very much loved by Harvey. They both move together to San Francisco, where Harvey goes on to have his political career. Harvey Milk becomes the first openly gay man to be elected in office. The movie chronicles some of the other battles that Harvey must face when he gets elected. However, I enjoyed how the movie showed him displaying persistence, courage, and self-confidence even in the face of obstacles. Josh Brolin plays Harvey's political rival Dan White (in real life Dan White is responsible for his murder). There are going to be various elements that catch an individual's attention depending on who they are. What caught my attention was how Harvey Milk is portrayed as one who is the rescuer. Obviously, this at times served him well to have a good heart because he was well loved by many people. The movie shows how he would come to the "rescue" of the two lovers that are portrayed in the movie (Scott Smith and Jack Lira)in a compassionate and caring way. First off, let me say that I think that it was a good thing that he had a big heart. It served him in a positive way on how he connected to people from all walks of life. However, the movie does portray that it was his rescuing personality that may have cost him his life. This is due to the fact that the movie shows how one of Harvey's campaign workers warns him about being too close to Dan White. Harvey understands this concern of the campaign worker, but he implies why Dan could benefit from his help. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Important Awareness Movie April 21 2009
Format:DVD
The movie "Milk" is named after Harvey Milk (who is played by Sean Penn) who was a political activist for the gay community back in the 70's. Milk is based off of the struggles that gay and lesibian's (mainly gay men) had in their life. The struggles consisted of minimal or no rights (i.e. employment rights), no recognition or respect whatsoever. Harvey Milk tries year after year to get into political office, until he eventually gets it. The main focus from there on is fighting to have the gay community given equal rights, and recognition in society, and in this movies case, the United States. The movie highlights just how much of an inspirational leadering Harvey Milk was, and shows the rights he faught to get for the gay community.

Although the message is loud and clear, it is not a movie that everyone would be comfortable watching. There are many scenes in the film with men kissing other men, and there is also mature theme, profane language, violence, and disturbing images. However the film strongly, and successfully gets their point across with (hopefully) a lesson learned at the end of the film. So for that, I give the film 5/5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Milk April 3 2009
Format:DVD
Milk ( yes it was is real name )is one of the best gay drama I have seen since ''Latter Days''

The only thing I can say is BUY IT , it is worth every pennies you will pay for.
Remember that it is thanks to people like ''MILK'' that the gay community
has evolved and gave us better POSITIVE acceptance from our fellow man and women.
FREEDOM is a precious gift, do not waist it

5.0 out of 5 stars Suffering for Acceptance by General Population May 12 2009
Format:DVD
The recent motion picture "Milk" represents an accurate portrayl of what it meant to be a practicing gay man in the 1950's, 60's and 70's in all of North America. It is only now that as a 71 year old gay man that I do not hide my sexual orientation but still feel for those who feel they still have to remain in the closet to protect their social status and jobs.
