Milk

BluRay Authority
28 January 2012
  • Excerpt: No, it’s not an ad for your favorite dairy product, rather “Milk” is the story of one of this country’s pioneers of the gay rights movement. Admittedly, I’d never heard of Harvey Milk before the movie came out and, ironically enough, my aunt (who was the managing editor of the San Francisco Examiner in the 80’s/90’s) was friends with him and has actually saved some of his memos to her. But let’s focus on a few things closer to the surface, shall we?

  • Excerpt: Typically great performances by Sean Penn as Harvey Milk and Josh Brolin as his political nemesis Dan White makes Gus Van Sant's return to mainstream filmmaking one of the more fascinating political biopics in recent memory.

  • Excerpt: The biopic of Harvey Milk , the first openly gay man to be elected into office, is full of inspiration, surprise and heart. Though Gus Van Sant ’s past few experimental efforts "Elephant" (2003), "Last Days" (2005) and "Paranoid Park" (2007) have been some of the most painful experience put to celluloid, he is also the guy who made "Good Will Hunting" (1997). I understand Van Sant’s experimental side, but I cannot embrace it.

Milk Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
12 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Harvey Milk's historic political career and tragic death makes for a compelling film that is both socially conscious and timely. Director Gus Van Sant has perfectly captured the essence of Mr. Milk's appeal, distilling it into an accessible tragedy that even the most jaded audience member should be able to appreciate.

Sound & Vision Magazine
9 March 2009
  • Excerpt: His life changed history. His courage changed lives. Academy Award(R) winner Sean Penn stars in this stirring celebration of Harvey Milk, a true man of the people. Based on the inspiring true story of the first openly gay man elected to major public office, this compelling film follows Milk's powerful journey to inspire hope for equal rights during one of the least tolerant times in our nation's history.

High-Def Digest
2 March 2009
  • Conclusion: 'Milk' defied my dislike for Hollywood biopics. It's a lovingly crafted, articulate, and passionate portrayal of one man who transcended politics to define a movement. This Blu-ray is nicely done (if understated) in terms of video and audio. Only the weak supplements disappoint -- I suspect we'll see a double-dip in 'Milk's future. As is, this is still worth a purchase for fans of the film, and a must-rent for everyone else.

Milk

Cinema Blend
26 November 2008
  • Excerpt: When Dustin Lance Black began writing a screenplay about Harvey Milk in 2004, Barack Obama was an unknown local politician, and the wave of state bans on gay marriages had only begun as ballot initiatives. And while Milk would be an excellent film any year, coming as it does in November 2008, it is almost unbearably poignant.
