THE TIMES of HARVEY MILK is an enormously absorbing film for the light it sheds on a decade in the life of a great American city and on the lives of Milk and Moscone, who made it a better and certainly a more interesting place to live.
Harvey Milk stood for something more than just him, and this warm, well-made documentary makes that eminently clear. Robert Epstein, who co-directed, indicates the ways in which Harvey Milk was emblematic of one segment of society and Dan White of another. And he traces the clash that arose between them.
