Critic Reviews for Milk & Honey
With its downtown context and mood of escalating desperation, the movie bears a strong resemblance to Martin Scorsese's Manhattan odyssey, After Hours.
Some fine performances shine through in Joe Maggio's pretentious, credulity-straining dramedy.
It's not surprising that director Joe Maggio got Hal Hartley to score his off-kilter drama. Both upend clichés through a deadpan visual style and mordant performances. As a result, both have had uneven success.
Milk and Honey is the kind of nightmare- in-a-box you might expect if Neil LaBute remade Martin Scorsese's After Hours on a shoestring.
Audience Reviews for Milk & Honey
Serious subject matter given a fairly well scripted treatment. The depiction of bipolar disorder was better than that in most movies and the self destructive persistence many show in going off their meds was effectively conveyed. The plot was a bit beyond belief in some aspects. On balance, a pretty decent cinematic treatment of mental illness.
