Gus Van Sant's Milk

Milk is here! I’ll forgive Gus Van Sant the obvious semen joke (will Middle America get it? Will Middle America see the movie?) The film looks delicious.Van Sant was smart enough to find hot actors to play the leads — he knows his base…why do you think Brokeback did so well? The studio is marketing it as a political romp, for those ignorant to the fact that it ends badly. One question: why did he use the same Baroque choral standard in the trailer that HBO used for Angels in America? Was it deliberate, trying to latch to one of the few good gay movies out there? It worked for me, now I really want to see it (but then again I always see the new Van Sant)
