The older he’s gotten, the more of a legend he has become. So it should come as no surprise that the great John Milius would have a documentary made about him -- the real question is what took so long. The man behind the “Dirty Harry” franchise, “Apocalypse Now,” and “Conan the Barbarian” is known as much for his personality as he is for his film work. He was one of the inspirations for the Walter Sobchak character in the “The Big Lebowski” after all (as we discussed in our feature about the film yesterday). Anyway, finally that personality has been captured for our enjoyment in the upcoming documentary “Milius,” from filmmakers Joey Figueroa and Zak Knutson, and the trailer is now here to give you a peek.

John Milius

The older he’s gotten, the more of a legend he has become. So it should come as no surprise that the great John Milius would have a documentary made about him -- the real question is what took so long. The man behind the “Dirty Harry” franchise, “Apocalypse Now,” and “Conan the Barbarian” is known as much for his personality as he is for his film work. He was one of the inspirations for the Walter Sobchak character in the “The Big Lebowski” after all (as we discussed in our feature about the film yesterday). Anyway, finally that personality has been captured for our enjoyment in the upcoming documentary “Milius,” from filmmakers Joey Figueroa and Zak Knutson, and the trailer is now here to give you a peek.

As you will witness, the filmmakers have interviewed some of the biggest names in Hollywood: Harrison Ford, Martin Scorsese, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Steven Spielberg, Francis Ford Coppola and George Lucas, to name a few. Together they reminisce about Milius' talent for storytelling, his success in Hollywood, and the persona that he’s created for himself. Seeing all these great filmmakers of our time eagerly talk about the “Zen anarchist” makes this doc an absolute must-see.

“Milius” will make its debut at the SXSW this week. Check out the trailer below. While you’re at it, also check out this great feature we did last year about the essential works of John Milius.
