Sean Penn gave a performance that not only made a statement to his acting diversity but also to his connection to making characters come to life. - Drewstar

This Movie Can't Stop me from crying.V 7 Comments
Kudos to penn for making an almost entirely unlikable character on paper be shown human
Awesome movie and brilliant perfomances by sean penn ^^ susan surandon. Tim robins directs this touching movie about remorse, redemption and courage. Well worth watching.
Sean Penn makes me want to cry and shout at the screen with anger at the same time. BRILLIANT! He gives such a layered performance which we can only admire!
Brilliant film, brilliant actor. Sean penn is a class actor. One of my favourite films eve.
Simply superb. Acting is a tour de force of deep humanity, grief, anger and steely revenge.
The best performance by an actor-ever. Hard movie but so worth it.V 2 Comments
agree with acting performance of milk but bad boys... classic! same with ridgemont high. hard for me to put them below milk only because of the 80's "greats, " gotta love 'em. otherwise good list.V 2 Comments
I liked this movie a lot
The movie that has strengthened my thinking and changed my life with a strong philosophical support. Whatever I will say will be less to admire for this movie. I'd prefer not to see any better movie to keep it the best I have ever seen.
Best movie ever. I love Eddie Vedder's music in this movie. Emile is indeed a great "new" talent. Sean did a great job with this movie.
this is one of d most philosophical movies I have evr seen... hats off to penn... its direction and originality from the real story makes it special... emile was superb
How is this not number one?! For staters, people who knew Milk personally said that Sean Penn captured his personality, his humanity, and even his voice and smile down to the smallest, most minute detail. He's so likable, cheerfully optimistic, and you can't help but love him. I may be biased, but this movie is one of the very very few films that have truly, deeply, touched me, in a way that I think of every day. After watching this film, I felt utterly inspired to live my life the way Harvey did, with kindness and love, with strength, with passion, to fight for what I believe in and refuse to be belittled. I wanted to be kind to everyone no matter who they were, even if they were different from me. I wanted to promote acceptance. This movie, as well as Brokeback Mountain, cemented my strong support of homosexuality. And other than the emotional aspects, it is a technical tour de force, brilliantly crafted, uniquely original. A true masterpiece. 50 thumbs up!
Even his minimal physical actions seem "gay". INCREDIBLE job!V 1 Comment
I taught in the main character's three areas of LA. Good stuff. Reminded me of all my students.
This is perhaps my favorite Sean Penn performence, Emmet Ray is Egotistical, Chauvinistic, Arrogant, A Thief, A Gambler, and so many other things, and Sean Penn captures it perfectly, no other actor could have done this role justice. It's a shame that he lost the oscar to Kevin Spacey
One of his best movies, very underrated, unfortunately.
