Milius review

The mighty Milius...

If you’re a fan of ‘70s Hollywood then chances are you dig John Milius.

His writing gigs saw him contribute to Dirty Harry , Jaws and Apocalypse Now . Then there’s the directing credits: Dillinger , Big Wednesday , Conan The Barbarian

A self-titled “Zen anarchist”, Milius is also a right-wing gun-nut, but directors Joey Figueroa and Zak Knutson never let that overshadow his talent in this memorable, conventional account of a true maverick.

Old pals Spielberg, Scorsese, Schrader, Lucas and Coppola pay tribute, before the final reel adds genuine poignancy to the life of this unique storyteller.
