  • Summary: Explores the life and career of Harvey Milk, who was the first openly gay man elected to public office in 1977 as a member San Francisco's Board of Supervisors. The acting, the writing and the story is what makes this movie great in many ways.

  • Summary: I absolutely loved it! Sean Penn gives the best performance of his career. He truly steps into the character and completely deserved his Oscar. Great cast. There were a few minor missteps here and there, particularly with some of the character development, but that does not hold this film back from being one of the absolute best films of 2008.

A very well done movie about human rights

  • Excerpt: The true story of Harvey Milk, detailing his rise from San Francisco businessman to gay activist to city supervisor, and his subsequent murder in office, along with the mayor of San Francisco, is very well done. In these days of the Supreme Court looking at the rights of gay and lesbian rights to marry, this is a good film to watch so you can realize that people are people, no matter what, and deserve the right to be treated as complete equals.

  • Summary: Gus Van Sant's biopic avoids the tendency to be cyclical, as most biopics are, and, instead focuses on the heart of the resilient and inspiring character of Harvey Milk. Milk is embodied by a completely engrossing performance by Penn, who gives the mayor a vivacity and passion that breathes life into the story.

  • Summary: As far as biographical pictures go, this one is pretty good. Sean Penn and Josh Brolin always make excellent movies. And, this on is no different. The story of the young man who calls Milk on the phone is particularly both heartbreaking and inspirational at the same time. Most bio pics fall into a situation where they have to either tell the boring truth about what happened, or take liberties with the story-line. But this movie didn't appear to do that.

Milk

  • Excerpt: I was expected Milk to be kind of annoying. Now, I love me some gay rights, but I thought this would be so preachy and Sean-Penn-y and self-important. It kind of was, but goshdarnit, Sean Penn is such a good actor. It was inspiring and I loved the style and screenplay structure. I REALLY felt like I was in SF in the 70s. I visited the Castro District while on Spring Break and went inside Castro Camera (which is now a gift shop called Given).

  • Excerpt: Brilliant film about one of the most important political figures in human history. I saw "Milk" twice in theaters, bought the DVD shortly after, and then finally the blu-ray. The transfer is as close to the theatrical quality as you will find. It particularly shows off the beautiful cinematography by the great Harris Savides. If only you could watch this and "Magnolia" as a double feature on blu-ray...you would never recover.

A bit dissapointed with Milk

  • Excerpt: I was hoping to love this movie since it's won Academy Awards and Sean Penn's in it, however I was a bit let down. The film seemed to focus more on Harvey's personal life than his political life - which is what I expected and hoped for. I knew I was taking a risk when picking this movie. While I didn't enjoy the plot a whole lot, I think Sean Penn did an absolutely fantastic job taking on his character. This is one of the first BDs I bought.

  • Summary: Amazing movie. I have never seen a movie that has affected me so much. The movie tells a story about an amazing man by the name of Harvey Milk and how he strived to bring equal rights to all homosexuals. Scene after scene in this movie is just pure genuis! Everyone should watch this movie. Everybody should know who Harvey Milk is and what he contributated to our country. Bravo. Loved this movie and always will. Worth watching a million times.
