A true twentieth-century trailblazer, Harvey Milk was an outspoken human rights activist and one of the first openly gay U.S. politicians elected to public office; even after his assassination in 1978, he continues to inspire disenfranchised people around the world. One of the first feature documentaries to address gay life in America, The Times of Harvey Milk is a work of advocacy itself, bringing Milk’s message of hope and equality to a wider audience. This exhilarating trove of original documentary material and archival footage is as much a vivid portrait of a time and place as a testament to the legacy of a political visionary.

One downfall is the script. The script is below average to well below average in some spots (Almost every scene with her father makes you want to cringe), but the cast makes the most out of it and turns it into a respectable movie.

Written and directed to perfection by Denis Villeneuve, the film slowly unfolds its secrets and gives you subtle, emotional jabs at every corner, and when you find out the big reveal toward the end, you'll find yourself being completely devastated. It's powerfully acted, beautifully shot, and the story is never less compelling. However, despite all the great things in the film, I can't imagine myself watching this film again anytime soon. I have to say while it is powerful and gut-wrenching on many levels, the big reveal about who the main characters' father and brother, I thought, were uber contrived and it slightly tips into the more melodramatic territory. It is not an easy film to sit through, but if you are a fan of mystery films with a twist of Greek tragedy, then I think you will absolutely love "Incendies". It is a brilliant piece of work.

Pierluigi P (nl) wrote: An amusing and completely uncategorizable film that captures the mood of its period, an atmosphere long gone by now where the low life and unstable compulsive gamblers round up looking for little green papers to pass through the week or more hopefully to heal their wounds. As some other works by its director, it feels over talky, anarchic, scattered, erratic, but he always gets the best out of his cast, giving them time to improvise and take it to the wildest, in the case of Elliot Gould. He and George Segal were perfect for the job, the chemistry is real, un rehearsed. Although the story doesn't take much chances, the reliance on its actors' charm is what makes it quite enjoyable.
Charles R (us) wrote: A vastly influential short film, and yes, it's *that* one where they show the eyeball being sliced ("Slicing eyeballs, whao-oh-oh-oh! - Frank Black). For fans of Lynch and laudinum. 5/5 Most of the events that transpire sound far more grotesque than the film actually portrays them - the infamous eye-slicing scene actually transpires on a starry moonlit veranda, bearing none of the insidiousness that usually would accompany such a brutal act of violence. But lest the eyeball scene steal the show, Luis Bunuel and Dali dive headfirst into a maddening absynthian trip that pairs Buster Keaton-esque physical comedy with outlandish imagery that defies all explanation, scored by Wagner and chintzy tangoes. All in all, this is a film of epic, RANDOM absurdity, and yet it still remains easily accessible and oddly mesmerizing, and most definitely worthy of its notorious influence amongst the weirdos of American classic cinema.
