Semi Skimmed - Milk review by Jawbreaker

Spoiler Alert
17/06/2009

I was somewhat disappointed by Milk, given the plaudits its received since last year. Based on a remarkable true-life story, I found the voice over at times interfering and the first half of the film plods along, when it really needs focusing. Things certainly pick up when Harvey becomes successful in local politics yet it remains a mixed bag. The production team did a great job capturing the San Francisco era and his legacy shows how much we’ve developed as a society since.

warm milk - Milk review by LM

The look of the film is great, the pace and language have their high points and Penn is at his chameleon best. Sadly overall the movie is just a little too cosy to feel like a true reflection of the times.

The Disappointment - Milk review by Titch

Spoiler Alert

I believe Harvey Milk was a great man. A man who did so much in the little time he was an activist for gay rights. This film could have had a message to send to all who watches it, but sadly i must have missed it which is such a shame. With that all said the cast and crew of this film were great .
