THE WALK, STRIDE OR STROLL ( TAKE YOUR PICK) OUT OF A PRESS SCREENING IS CHAT CITY. EVERYONE USUALLY WANTS YOU TO KNOW THEIR EDUCATED THOUGHTS AND TO GET A GRASP OF YOURS. I LOVE IT AND I HATE IT. I AM AKIN TO PONTIFICATE AND AM DRAWN TO SUCH THINGS, BUT MOST TIMES AFTER JUST SEEING A FILM, I NEED TO LET IT SINK IN BEFORE I KNOW HOW I FEEL. I USUALLY KEEP SILENT AND HIDE BEHIND MY PARTNER IN CRIME AS SHE TELLS THE PRESS SCREENER GUY SOMETHING WITTY. LAST WEEK AFTER THE MILK SCREENING NO-ONE SAID A WORD. WE ALL (IT WAS A FULL HOUSE) EXITED IN SILENCE. HOPE AND OUTRAGE WERE RINGING IN MY EARS.
A GREAT FILM. A SHOE-IN FOR MANY OSCARS.  GUS VAN SANT AND SEAN PENN ARE DESERVING OF RECOGNITION.
I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT HARVEY MILK. HE JUST BLEW ME AWAY. SEAN PENN PLAYED THIS GUY WITH A CHARM AND AN EXACTITUDE, THAT I COULD NOT HELP BUT TO LIKE THIS GUY. I AM IN AWE OF WHAT THIS GUY WAS ABLE TO DO. THIS IS A REVOLUTIONARY FILM FOR THE GAY RIGHTS MOVEMENT AND WILL AND SHOULD BE POLI SCI CLASS FODDER FOR GENERATIONS.
MY ONLY CRITICISM IS THAT THIS FILM SHOULD HAVE BEEN RELEASED BEFORE THE ELECTIONS.
