Inside Deep Throat #

Released 2/11/2005

Description: In 1972, a seemingly typical shoestring budget pornographic movie was made in a Florida hotel, "Deep Throat," starring Linda Lovelace. This movie would surpass the wildest expectation of everyone involved to become one of the most successful independent movies of all time. It caught the public imagination which met the spirit of the times, even as the self appointed guardians of public morality struggled to suppress it, and created, for a brief moment, a possible future where sexuality in movie had a bold artistic potential. This movie covers the storyline of the making of this controversial film, its stunning success, its hysterical opposition along with its dark side of mob influence and allegations of the on set mistreatment of the film's star.

Milk Reviews:

Gus Van Sant's talent and humility allows Harvey Milk to be a the center of this remarkable storyline without putting himself in front of the camera. Sean Penn shines with a fresh and extraordinary light as Harvey Milk. His humanity is overwhelming at times. That permanent smile defining his face talks volumes about his faith in people, no matter what. His awareness is filled with truth and innocence, he worries he's about to be 40 and hasn't accomplished anything. Tiny did he know.The movie is constructed brilliantly in a series of vignettes that builds up into a entire fluid narrative. Josh Brolin, as the disturbed Dan White is other standout in a complex and remarkable performance. No cheap shots here. Diego Luna, Joseph Cross and Emile Hirsch are also terrific as the men around Harvey but it is James Franco who truly gets under your skin. His romantic turn is one of the most compelling gay love stories I've ever seen (and I've seen Brokeback Mountain). Highly recommended!


It happened only 30 years ago but it looks and feels as if it had been much, much longer and yet we're still dealing with many of the same issues. Gus Van Sant moves slightly and respectfully to mainstream to say us this inspiring and tragic story. Sean Penn is magnificent as Harvey Milk, none of the traits that made him popular are show here, another than his talent that is, he exudes a positive sweetness that is compelling and contagious. Josh Brolin as Dan White, manages the impossible by giving the killer an unexpected but welcome humanity. James Franco as Milk's lover is, quite simply, scrumptious. As it happens with most biopics we're forced to run from happening to happening to be fair and accurate and "Milk" suffers from that. I wanted more insight into Diego Luna's hero - the most problematic - and into Emile Hirsch's hero but the essentials are here and the essentials gotta be listed in lyrical terms. History yes but also poetry. Hope as a theme. A triumph!


Enormously moving film/document about the raise and fall of Harvey Milk. If you don't know who he was, you will. The most startling detail of the movie is the casting of Sean Penn. A stroke of genius. I, personally, never would have though that the range of this wonderful actor was as wide as this. He took me over and convinced me. I was watching Harvey Milk himself and Penn with the extraordinary help of his director never betrays that illusion. I'm sorry "Milk" didn't come out a several weeks ago. For those in California having to vote for Proposition 8, it would have been easier to decide just by watching Anita Bryant ranting about the evils of homosexuality. She sounded ridiculous then, Im sure, but today she sounds ridiculously ancestral. The vision of Harvey Milk is still, unfulfilled but we're certainly getting closer. Gus Van Sant surrounds our character by an extraordinary group of young actors, in particular Emile Hirsch, James Franco and a superlative Josh Brolin. Not to be missed.
