This is too heavy for me. I'll going to see the Sound of Music sing-along @ Music Box Theatre before it closes!

Penn has shown he is truely gifted but it comes with real passion for his subjects-humanity. Milk was humanity for all and thrived on the joy of others-joy and justice.
Yes, let's hope Oscar night rewards these effforts by some or all to comemorate the breathe Milk breathed and negate Prop. 8. Especially Penn's heartfelt performance.
P.S. The jury is still out on Brolin and 'we' had no real insight into his pathology through his megar potrayal, as well, we do not see Ms. Fienstiens encourgement of him ( White) to demand his job back and her discomfort with Gays until she was unable to gain a pulality for mayor, thus beg the profit, why she never really apppears in film except as footage. There is literally and figureativly blood on her hands having put her fingers in the bullet holes to determine death. Odd I would have gone for the wrist or neck? There is alway more to any story but Van Sant made this about a man who chose to address more than "an issue"- Milk sought equality for all in life.

Yes, let's all run to see folks escape Nazi's in Europe and make light of it -ah, not too heavy.

To Phillips: This on-line paper is getting harder to navagate, while no problem with other papers. Tribs on line help-NO HELP? Hard to read your reviews or see showtimes -not good for circulation /advertisement in general.
