I just finished a not too critical viewing of the new DVD of Big Wednesday, a film by John Milius. John Milius. As in The Wind and The Lion. As in Apocalypse Now. As in Red Dawn. I'm going to have to see this several times. But a first impression is a mixture of American Grafitti plus some scenes from Alice's Restaurant. This film serves as a warm-up to the importance of the surfing scenes in Apocalypse Now. Milius did a commentary track for this Warner release. I'll have to listen to it on another viewing. But is this a premonition of Milius doing a commentary for an SE of The Wind And The Lion?
