Critic Reviews for Milius
Thankfully, Milius is not just a hagiographic portrait of the artist as a crotchety, marginalized dynamo.
His friends and fans - clearly upset by his recent stroke - eulogise him to death.
There's fire and firepower a-plenty in this elegiac profile of '70s moviemaking stalwart, John Milius.
Before he became a caricature, Milius personified 70s Hollywood's renegade heart and was airlifted in to supply gonzo energy at key junctures.
There's not much we learn about bearded monomaniac John Milius that you couldn't glean from a quick internet trawl.
Audience Reviews for Milius
Sam Elliott: He doesn't write for pussies and he doesn't write for women. He writes for men, because he's a man. "Man. Myth. Legend." Milius is a very engaging and well made documentary. John Milius is a filmmaker that I didn't know a whole lot about going into this film. I knew he directed Red Dawn and that he wrote Apocalypse Now, but as far as the details this film gets into; I wasn't really aware. Milius is shown in a very respectable way. The film is obviously more positive then negative about the man, but there are instances where, even his friends, will criticize him for the way he would act and some of the decisions he would make. I happen to love these documentaries that dive into the lives of filmmakers, so my liking of Milius didn't come as much of a surprise for me. Milius is a film I suggest to people who like getting into the behind the scenes workings of filmmaking and who like biographical documentaries of interesting people in general. You don't necessarily have to be a fan of Milius to get a good amount of enjoyment out of the film.
