  1. Aardsy's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Still effective and powerful.

  2. Patrick John's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    A painful reminder that we still have a long way to go for the gay community especially now after the Orlando shooting but it also reminds us that there are people who are fighting

  3. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    A classic documentary that brings profound feeling to the life and impact of Harvey Milk. Using insightful interviews and archival footage, this film takes us into the politics and atmosphere of the time. The most surprising thing about the film is the emotional heft that the film is able to conjure, and the impact it has on the viewer. A thoughtful and well made documentary.

  4. sax_and_violins's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    this doc leans too much towards the public figure harvey milk, it's too one-dimensional to be great (it's boring at times). the gus van sant directed biopic is way better.

  5. Michael Lutman's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Classic style (in a talking heads way) but very profound subject matter that is still pressing today - hypocrisy! Important film.

  6. anarresti's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    A good documentary about a central figure of the LGBT movement. We learn about the time he was alive, as an activist, the first to be elected to San Francisco's City Hall. And learn his story up to his and San Francisco's Mayor assassinations and the infamous trial of their murderer, that was able to get away with a short seven years sentence of manslaughter. This film has 30 years. A very long time. Or an instant.

  7. dinoage's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Just like his subject, Rob Epstein broke new ground in every sense with this film. A political case study and and archival wonderfest of a moment in time, this is documentary filmmaking at its best.

  10. Landen Celano's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Undoubtedly one of the most compelling and well-told narratives in documentary history.

  11. LifeofFiction's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    "I know that you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living."

  12. pivic's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Very simple and straightforward documentary on a simple, strong and fierce person by the name of Harvey Milk, who really did a lot to try and make life easier for homosexuals, heterosexuals... Well, tax-payers in general. It describes his life and troubles in depth without becoming clogged. Good interviews, very well-made and tragic. Recommendable.

  13. davefilkins's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    "You've gotta give 'em hope." Quite possibly the greatest political documentary of all time.

  14. Barry Levitt's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    A simplistic yet truly powerful documentation of, well, the times of Harvey Milk. The candlelight vigil scenes were truly beautiful, and the interviews were deeply personal and very interesting.

  15. Joshuah's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    despite its very simplistic nature, it's entertaining from start to finish... flawlessly constructed concerning it's subject. it much magnifies the political movement Milk created rather than biographies him. I wish it would have been way longer, but that fact that it is short and to the point makes it very accessible according to all viewers and their opinions.

  16. Border Radio's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Nuts and bolts talking heads documentary with an interesting subject.

  17. Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Times of Harvey Milk

    Solid, straight-forward documentary, classically structured around witness statements and recollections coupled with archive footage and a righteous sense of the unjust - and none-the-worse for it.
