Movie Info

Joe Maggio's second film, Milk & Honey, is a tale of a marriage with problems. Rick (Clint Jordan) and Joyce (Kirsten Russell) go their separate ways into the night after a disastrous appearance together at an office function. The apparently mentally unstable Rick ends up offering money to a stranger if that person will kill him. Shot on digital video, Milk & Honey was screened at the Sundance Film Festival.


Critic Reviews for Milk & Honey

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

With its downtown context and mood of escalating desperation, the movie bears a strong resemblance to Martin Scorsese's Manhattan odyssey, After Hours.

March 24, 2005

Some fine performances shine through in Joe Maggio's pretentious, credulity-straining dramedy.

March 18, 2005 | Rating: 2/4

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.

March 18, 2005 | Rating: 2.5/4

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.

A disarmingly effective reckoning with loss and regret.

March 15, 2005 | Full Review…

The characters each make their separate ways through Manhattan's cavernous underbelly, that is less milk and honey than a lunatic Dante's Inferno.
