Film Review by Dean Duncan Jul 15, 2015

A terrific mystery/poser: Milk/Floor is not exactly a whodunit, but what on earth is he doing? The eventual reveal comes like a big light bulb over your head, making obvious what no one could ever have imagined—it’s a perfect surprise, and a perfect ending. Perfect symmetry, too, unto chiasmus. (Perfect camera placement too.) And so funny! And it seems so gross, until you realize that what we’re really seeing is profound domestic accord, unto complete and inspiring oneness. They love each other! There’s a fun visual pun, too, with that liquid looking like it’s somehow pouring out of the auteur’s nose.
