Harvey Milk “Anthem” review – Revolver

Harvey Milk Anthem  * * * * (four stars)
Athens sludge-rawk heroes Harvey Milk are the archetypal “cult band”: Few people know of them, but those who do revere them. The makers of this highly limited and exquisitely designed DVD clearly count themselves among such devotees. A true labor of love, it collects three-and-a-half hours’ worth (44 songs) of live footage from ’93 to ’05, showcasing the trio at its atavistic best: destroying guitars, using sledgehammers as instruments, and beating gongs with flaming drumsticks. Watch, and welcome to the cult.
