Critic Reviews for Milius
Thankfully, Milius is not just a hagiographic portrait of the artist as a crotchety, marginalized dynamo.
With contributions from Coppola, Spielberg and Scorsese, the film does approach Milius with a certain reverence, but it can't disguise the fact that he's a troubling figure.
A biography of iconic filmmaker John Milius, this engaging documentary features some of the biggest stars of all time talking about their friend who changed the movies forever.
The whole thing reeks of cigars, machismo and hubris, its rhythm a relentless percussion of hairy chest pumping and big fat back slapping.
Audience Reviews for Milius
Very fascinating doc about one of the most memorable figures in Hollywood history, and one of the most talented writers, the man who wrote the USS Indianapolis speech in Jaws as well as Apocalypse Now Dirty Harry and many others, they get so many big names to speak in this doc-Spielberg, Scorsese, Coppola, Zemeckis, Mann, Walter Murch Sam Elliot and many others, very interesting stuff about the making of his movies, I highly recommend for fans of movies about making movies
A fascinating look inside the life of a fascinating Hollywood bad boy. This is both a brilliantly put together documentary, and a visceral look inside the Hollywood machine. I loved this movie for the sure-handed editing and passionate devotion to the hard facts. John Milius is officially the most fascinating man in Hollywood.
An epic, revealing doc about the great John Milius, who rose to the top with his grandeur, thought provoking films and eventually landed on the black list at the hands of the judgmental, pompous and personal politics of the film industry. If you love movies, its not to be missed.
