Milk (****)


Excellent movie centering around a fantastic, thoroughly convincing lead performance by Sean Penn as Harvey Milk. Lost count of how many scenes Penn made out with dudes, but I think they were outnumbered by the gay riot scenes. After the second or third, I began thinking instead of Victor Garber, San Francisco's mayor should have been Mayor Quimby. Just so Quimby could have said, "Can't this town go one day without a gay riot?"
