MILK made me cry

We braved the crowds yesterday to see MILK at Tower. Even though we had to sit too close to the front for comfort, I was mesmerized by the film.

It's really good. The parallels between then and now are staggering. Prop 6. Prop 8. It all feels the same sometimes. It's all infuriating.

I cried at the end. I really feel like I can't write too much about this film, except that I recommend it. Maybe I can find the words for it soon.

Oh, but I think that James Franco is doing his best for the gay cause, turning the straight men into homosexuals one viewer at a time!

Man, Milk is awesome. I keep thinking about it. Do you think that the movie implied that Dan White was gay?
