The Times Of Harvey Milk (1983)

I have just watched documentary, “The Times of Harvey Milk”. It recounts the life of Harvey Milk, who was the first homosexual elected to local office in San Francisco in 1977. Harvey’s close friends in the campaign are interviewed. They recount the good moments when he was elected to the assassination of George Moscone and himself by the hand of Dan White. There are few moments that truly touched me was the audio that was released after his death and also the candlelight vigil that took place. Harvey self-described himself as “The Mayor of Castro Street.” That is so true. This man that owned a small camera store with his partner to become a part of history is amazing. The documentary was narrated by Harvey Fierstein and it won the Academy Award for Best Documentary. It’s a must see.

I’m glad that I have seen this movie before Gus Van Sant’s “Milk” comes out later this year. I am looking forward to it. This could be big.
