Hear That Buzzing?: SLATE Calls MILK “magic” and “a work of art”

Money quote:

[W]ith Milk (Focus Features), the story of martyred gay rights activist Harvey Milk, Gus Van Sant and screenwriter Dustin Lance Black pull off something very close to magic. They make a film that’s both historically precise (allowing for a few compressions and ellipses, Milk follows the same arc as Randy Shilts’ biography The Mayor of Castro Street) and as graceful, unpredictable, and moving as a good fiction film—that is to say, a work of art.
