Amanda Milius Honors Her Father John’s Legacy With Post-Apocalyptic Western ‘The Lotus Gun’ – Watch

5 August 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amanda Milius says the sweeping wide-angle shot of the blazing sun in “The Lotus Gun,” her thesis film from USC, is not an homage to “Apocalypse Now,” for which her father, John Milius, penned the script. “The director of photography came up with that shot, it’s his signature,” the filmmaker recently told IndieWire.

Milius’ intimate knowledge of film – classic and cult – can be seen in every gorgeous shot of “The Lotus Gun,” which she directed and co-wrote. (She shares writing credit with Johnathan Eisenman). Set in a post-apocalyptic desert landscape, “The Lotus Gun” follows Nora (Lauren Avery) – a gun-toting, pot-smoking, anti-hero – and her love, Daphine (Dasha Nekrasova) as they survive alone in the wilderness. When a male intruder from a drug-addled commune absconds with Daphine, Nora must save the day and take revenge.
