Okay, for eight minutes of adoration
11 July 2009 | by (Rosebush) – See all my reviews

Not being some sort of Hollywood trivia expert, the name John Milius did not ring any bells for me when I rented the two-disk THE BRIDGE ON THE RIVER KWAI set released in 2000. Fortunately, the editors of this brief tribute to the 1958 Best Picture Oscar winner must have anticipated such a knowledge gap would pertain to a large segment of the people willing to not only sit through a 2 1/2-hour 1950s movie, but also peruse another disk of extras. Therefore, an opening title card points out Mr. Milius was the writer\director of BIG WEDNES.DAY and CONAN THE BARBARIAN, as well as a co-writer on APOCALYPSE NOW. Since the latter tidbit of info probably makes him more qualified to laud KWAI than, say, myself, I can report that his comments--putting KWAI in the "CITIZEN KANE class" of films, probably will not disappoint the younger fans of KWAI. Milius first saw David Lean's WWII epic as a child, and it was love at first sight. And for all the IMDb commentators and message-boarders who ripped the vultures circling in the sky for the film's final shot, Milius submits a case in Lean's defense.
