Another gay movie. Although we are not talking about love, as Brokeback mountain, for example. And there is nothing comedic, as in "Phillip Morris." It is true drama. Harvey milk fighting for gay rights. I myself foreign history, especially the newest not understand, but say that this man's life changed history. He was the first politician to talk openly about his homosexuality and he ended up winning on election. Of course before that there were years of defeat and not confession, but he had good support. Gay was already have a lot of time and they wanted equality.

As far as I know, still was taken 2 of the film of Harvey Milki. The first documentary: "the Times of Harvey milk," 1984, and this film. Both they got the Oscars. First as best documentary, the second won the Oscar in the categories best actor and best screenplay.

I'm this movie decided to watch due to the accumulation in it of my favorite actors. Like James Franco, Emile Hirsch and Diego Luna. To be honest, the film I'm not impressed. Not even know why.

About Harvey Milki like about the person.

Harvey milk — the first American politician who fought for the rights of homosexuals and lesbians. Born Harvey 22 may 1930 in city Woodmere of the state of new York. He began his career as an active political career in 40летнем age. In 1977 Harvey was elected members of the municipal Supervisory Board. Was shot 27 November, along with the mayor of the city of San Francisco — George Moscone.

In my opinion, many American politicians should take his example, Little is now persistent and stubborn people that is very important in a political career. One of the most courageous people in American history. Very sorry so brave and vulnerable at the same time man, died early.

About "Harvey Milki" how about the film.

Fairly good biographical drama. About the person that America can be proud of. Gus van Sant, of course, a good Director. Such films as "Good will hunting" and"Elephant", he proved can capture brilliant movies. Of course, the film contains erotic scenes and a vivid manifestation of homosexuality. So that, the film is intended for an older audience.

The rest of the film is not bad. However, the game Sean Penn for he received the "Oscar". Generally, individuals that existed in real life, somehow, more easy to play. Therefore, you can be sure that  the"Oscar" have you have hands. It can confirm Jamie Foxx, brilliantly played the role of ray Charles the same film. Forrest Whitaker, beautifully performed the role of dictator IDI Amina in the movie "the Last king of Scotland. Many of these cases (Marion Cotillard, Ben Kingsley and etc.) what is particularly surprising win Sean's not worth it. Actor he is great, and played well.

I confess that I watched this movie only because of interest in the Oscar-winning Penn role. The essence of the film I wasn't interesting, because gays politicians do not cause much sympathy, and if it is mixed, it is generally disgusting.

Penn — one of the best actors of our time. I wrote about versatility the credibility of its characters. "Harvey milk" was another confirmation of the amazing gift of this man. I looked again amazed at how deeply he is its role and becomes their hero. This brilliant! Every detail in his game is brought to absolute naturalism. And with however, I believe that not the strong role Penn.

The film itself is high-quality drama, but I have did not cause emotions. Script a kind, and that it was really got me some reflections.

In America's ongoing problem with policy. Apparently they policies take on more than you can carry. Have they kill in all branches of government. Who ever remember to have we were shooting in President? Or killed officials on jobs? All the much-vaunted American democracy built on the blood and bones of people. This nation long ago got rid of rasistic prejudices, recognizing polnotsennymi black people. Their sick society is pretty rotten in any ways. They constantly infringe the rights of each other, fighting for same same rights. And most striking thing is that they think of themselves as a nation with a great history, being in fact mixed European peoples.

In General, if the film gave me reason about all of this to think, then it was not reviewed nothing. But the second time I do not will do.
