First saw "Angels" advertised as I drove down New York City's West Side Highway and saw a HUGE billboard ad. Was a little bit cynical about how good it would be. Watched it on HBO, and what can I say???? BRILLIANT!!!!!!
The performances, direction, cinematography blew me away.
Had only seen Part Two performed on stage, so was intrigued to see the "whole thing".
EASY to say that Pacino, Streep, Emma Thompson were amazing, but SO were everybody involved in this production.
IF it had been theatrically released, it would have SWEPT the Oscars.
Buy, WATCH, and appreciate sheer brilliance!!!
On DVD at last!!!!!!! Saw this movie on PBS years ago, and I cried and cried. Harvey Milk SHOULD have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize even AFTER his death because black/white/(gay)/straight/WHATEVER, Harvey was a man of the PEOPLE - caring, compassionate, genuine. Who knows, if he hadn't been murdered, MAYBE we'd be voting for President Milk this November.
Buy this DVD, remember Harvey, and give thanks that there were (and still ARE!) wonderful people like him who fought for the rights of EVERYONE in our (gay) community.
BLESS you Harvey, you have become a LEGEND!!!
