Milk Review

| |

One of the echoing words of Harvey Milk are, "I am not a candidate, I am part of a movement. The movement is the candidate." And there's a lot to it in just those couple of words. In "Milk," we explore his character, finding the person behind all of that rare charismatic energy and passion that drove him to do what he did - uniting an entire generation of gay synergy and driving San Francisco to be one of the most important places for the gay movement today. However, what's more important is that the film isn't more about an issue, but an essence of a man that was fighting for the lives of others. What comes out the other end is a slightly melancholic piece that outlines how masked shortsightedness can bleed into universal acceptance of something wrong and unjust. It's what keeps us stagnant, and we should continue to do all we can to change that. 8.7/10.
