Implications in a film.
Oddball Review Gus Van Saint's Milk Movie...Does The Film Imply the Police Gave Supervisor Dan White the Gun? Anyone Else Notice the Scene Before the Shooting Rampage? Does it Imply a Conspiracy? Lex Loeb, Yahoo Contributor Network . The one odd ball scene in the film is the closed door meeting between what seems to be a representative of the San Francisco police department and on edge ready to resign City Supervisor Dan White. Why is that scene there and what does it imply? Not sure who wrote the script. The implication would seem to be clear that it was put there for some sort of foreboding. There could have otherwise been a scene of Dan White stuffing his month full of twinkies in the district attorney's office instead--prior to the murderous rampage of course. This is the one thing that stood out in the film as a sort of film punchline on par with the enigmatic movie, "Let There Be Blood" , a previous Oscar winner, where in a scene the top of his game rich old oilman at the top of his game beats a hypocritical preacher to death with a bowling ball. It seems that Hollywood saw this scene as the moment of catharsis--beating a man head to mush with a bowling ball. The "No Country For Old Men" had a similar not so happy ending. The Milk film seems to be the real life version of those last two big Oscar winners. The guilty are unashamed in all three films. In all three of these films the ending makes no sense but only the Harvey Milk movie was based on factual events? There are other relevant questions. Why when a City of San Francisco district is likely to elect a replacement for Dan White if he resigns do political savvy people like the Mayor and Milk not offer White Some position in the city before letting him go? The film gives foreboding that anyone can read that White is mentally unbalanced at times and certainly can't manage his anger. He eventually proved that with ease to a Jury after the murders. The film may need a police conspiracy implication in order to imply that there is martyrdom involved? That is an element of story telling. The film initially makes Dan White out to be a fairly reasonable guy not a homophone but a fairly tolerant guy whose out of step voting record did not even matter. The Mayor was not gay and is minimized in the film. First shot to death before Milk, the issue of martyrdom is not even associated with him. This analysis is just about the way the film is crafted with that one particular scene behind closed doors in the police headquarters office. It is not unfair that that scene is there just curious what it is supposed to be saying? Do the police get some of the credit or not? OK, so movies don't have to make sense! If this one does it definitely seems as if a bigger conspiracy is being hinted at even going so far as to infer the plausibility that the if the police did not give White the gun they were somehow supporters of White's murderous deeds? Where are the police after the Mayor is shot? Not a single one to be scene in City Hall in those scenes. Then someone may have left the window open at City Hall Where a guy could get a gun inside undetected-did they have metal detectors at city hall back then? Curious. Van Saint does well in this film with art imitating real life where ultimately a hostess Twinkie got all the blame. In a fictional piece the killer would not have a weapon like an air gun or a bowling ball but rather a box of Hostess Twinkies. .
