Milk

 (2008)

Milk Blu-ray delivers great video and audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

His life changed history. His courage changed lives. In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans. Milk charts the last eight years of Harvey Milk's life. While living in New York City, he turns 40. Looking for more purpose, Milk and his lover Scott Smith relocate to San Francisco, where they found a small business, Castro Camera, in the heart of a working-class neighborhood. With his beloved Castro neighborhood and beautiful city empowering him, Milk surprises Scott and himself by becoming an outspoken agent for change. With vitalizing support from Scott and from new friends like young activist Cleve Jones, Milk plunges headfirst into the choppy waters of politics. Bolstering his public profile with humor, Milk's actions speak even louder than his gift-of-gab words. When Milk is elected supervisor for the newly zoned District 5, he tries to coordinate his efforts with those of another newly elected supervisor, Dan White. But as White and Milk's political agendas increasingly diverge, their personal destinies tragically converge. Milk's platform was and is one of hope--a hero's legacy that resonates in the here and now.

Milk Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Of the many things that Milk is, it's most certainly not demo material on Blu- ray. That's not to say that the film is presented in anything other than a completely faithful and accurate manner, quite the opposite in fact. Milk has made the transition from theaters to the home fully intact, while retaining a well executed filmic quality. The only source of inconsistency in the film comes from its frequent reliance on well-worn stock footage for many establishing shots and montages. These scenes are particularly noticeable, with varying amounts of grain and print damage, when blended with the material shot specifically for the film. Given the need for such footage, it an entirely understandable situation that adds an authentic, dated flair to the movie.

Milk isn't particularly colorful, though occasional warm, vivid hues do sneak in from time to time. Contrast is stable, though not particularly impressive; black levels tend to appear slightly elevated throughout the film, consistent with the period aspect of the film's appearance. There's little depth to the image, and detail remains average for the duration of the film. Ultimately, Milk has an intentionally washed-out and vintage look and feel that this Blu-ray release replicates to perfection. Milk is recommended.


Milk Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Don't expect much from Milk in the sound department. The film is almost entirely dialogue-driven and features very little in the way of surround activity. Universal has given the film their standard 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio treatment; unfortunately, the source material just doesn't do much to excite the aural senses. The only noticeable instances of surround activity come during the film's many crowd scenes. The cacophony of a throng of different voices, shouts and echoes rings out in the rear channels, providing a stark contrast to the remainder of the predominantly front-loaded film.

Dialogue, as is to be expected with a lossless track, is well rendered, intelligible and placed firmly within the center channel. The film's musical score is also nicely placed within the front stereo channels. Beyond that, there's not much more to report on. Milk sounds just like it did theatrically; it's not intended to do anything more than highlight the film's performances.
