Milk

I think I prefer the "Times of Harvey Milk" to Gus Van Sant's "Milk".  It was a good movie, don't get me wrong. However,  I was trying to figure out why it wasn't as powerful to me as the documentary. 

I think it's because Van Sant was too sympathetic in his portrayal of Dan White. I mean, I kind of felt for Dan White to be honest.   Also..one of the most powerful scenes in the documentary was the reaction to Milk's death..and the candlelight march.  And only the last few lines of text focused on that in "Milk".

I still think it was a good film, but I think I was gunning for a more gut-wrenching movie. Thoughts?
