Okay, I finally made it to see one of the four remaining Oscar nominated movies that I hadn't seen. As you know from the title of this post and the art, I saw Milk tonight. Fantastic and Outstanding! I know I haven't seen all the others yet, but it is hard to imagine that another film will top this.
I do know that Sean Penn was extraordinary in this film. Just when you think he can't play a role any better than he already has, he blows you away with this performance as Harvey Milk. Josh Brolin was good too, but didn't hit it out of the park like Penn did.
It really is amazing and the timing is very poignant in light of the recently passed California's Proposition H8te...sorry getting on my political soap box here a little.
Now I still have to see "Slumdog Millionaire", "Frost/Nixon", and the "Reader" to make my goal by Feb. 22nd.
