I hadn't intended to see "My Name is Harvey Milk" tonight. But I had a hard time finding the movie theatre, so that by the time I got there, the film I'd intended to see was already 15 minutes underway, so I chose Harvey Milk instead. It just blew me away - extraordinarily moving, and Sean Penn's performance has to be among the top five performances I've seen by any actor or actress. In anything. Ever.

I'm still so jazzed by the film it's hard to consider going to bed. But it's midnight, so I'd best call it a day for now.

A truly wonderful movie, all the better for having stumbled across it serendipitously.
