StudioCanal has sent us the official UK trailer for Joey Figueroa and Zak Knutson's documentary Milius (2013). The film chronicles the life story of one of the most influential and controversial film directors in the history of Hollywood, and is set to open in theaters across the United Kingdom on November 1.
Milius will also be available to purchase on DVD on November 18th. (You can order it here).
Synopsis: From his childhood aspirations to join the military to his formative years at the USC Film School, his legendary work on films such as "Apocalypse Now", "Jaws", "Conan The Barbarian", "Dirty Harry" and "Red Dawn" to his ultimate dismissal from Hollywood due to his radical beliefs and controversial behavior. The film includes in depth interviews with Milius himself and others such as Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Francis Ford Coppola, Harrison Ford, Michael Mann, Robert Zemeckis, Oliver Stone, Bryan Singer, Charlie Sheen, Matthew Weiner and more.
Some of his antics were stupid and childish, but Conan the Barbarian is a near masterpiece, and the fact that Walter Sobchak in the Big Lebowski is loosely based on Milius makes me like him, maybe more than I should. I will be getting this for sure.
