John Milius' Dillinger (1973), Free on the Internet

See-Dub sends this link to a free web "Fancast" of the movie, which I see from the reviews on Netflix is pretty good. One fan exults "Out-Peckinpahs Peckinpah," which seems like hyperbole, but that has me interested.

In case you don't know, John Milius is the radical libertarian/conservative/masculinist who directed Conan, wrote and directed Red Dawn, and co-wrote, if my memory serves, Apocalypse Now, I think in collaboration at some point with George Lucas. (Lucas was fired from the project when he insisted that Col. Kurtz be portrayed as a giant humanoid badger with a Yiddish accent. Also, he wanted Dennis Hopper's character to be Jar-Jar.)

I'm either guessing or remembering he had something to do with Scarface, too. (Edit: Nope. I think I confused Oliver Stone for him. Oliver Stone co-wrote the screenplay for Conan. But Milius did write Magnum Force and Quint's Indianapolis speech from Jaws. (!) Much cooler than Scarface, IMHO.

Maybe we can do a "movie club" type discussion on it tomorrow or somethin'.
Hmm: Make it Wednesday, I think.
