Big Wednesday
Filmfest 2004

“Milius’ youth is woven into this classic surfing movie. The main characters are amalgamations of people he knew. He’d hang out at a place called Starburger, where the owner would tell them they’d all be in jail by their 20s. With expansion in California came new freeways and Starburger was flattened by progress, so taking with it a way of life that Milius will paint in your head like a vivid canvas.” www.bbc.co.uk/films "Bid Wednesday“ is considered by many to be the best surfing movie in film history.
