indieWIRE.com’s Michael Koresky on Haim Tabakman‘s EYES WIDE OPEN:
“It’s so tempting to treat “Eyes Wide Open” as the preposterous melodrama that it easily could have been, but Tabakman manages to make a well composed, unemphatic, and fleet-footed drama out of the overheated material. A more restrained portrait of unconsummated desire might have been both more authentic and compelling, but a less titillating film would have attracted little attention.”

Out gay director Gus Van Sant’s long-awaited bio-pic of openly gay San Francisco supervisor and visionary gay rights leader Harvey Milk comes to the screen at last starring Sean Penn as Milk, in a riveting performance destined to earn him the Best Actor nomination (and quite possibly the win). James Franco also gives a stellar performance as Milk’s boyfriend Scott Smith (shades of Heath Ledger’s Ennis with his plaid shirts and strong silent affection as he stands by his man as long as he can). Josh Brolin’s portrayal of Dan White may also earn a Supporting Actor nod for his forboding yet humanizing depiction of the man who murdered Milk (and SF Mayor George Moscone). The release of the film coincides with the 30th anniversary of Milk’s assassination (on November 27th, 1978) and serves as apt inspiration for all of us as we soldier on in the good fight against Prop 8 (and myriad other injustices across the country). Opens in limited release November 26th. In wide release December 5th.
Saffron Burrows stars in THE GUITAR, a new drama from Amy Redford about a woman confronting her own mortality. Opening November 7th in New York City at Sunshine Cinema. Full details here.
