Fun and charming film doc about a cult hero

Like the title of this documentary picks up on, Dick Miller is an actor that loads of people say 'hey it's that guy, from┬ůsomething else'. Most people don't know his name but sure as hell know his face. That's because he appeared in loads and loads of films, mostly in smaller parts and tended to make an impression because he was always good value. Well, the good news is that now we have this film, so no one has any excuse for not knowing what this guy's name is again!

Miller started out acting for Roger Corman in the 50's, starring in cult classics like A Bucket of Blood, he carried on appearing in an array of exploitation flicks throughout the 70's, hit the mainstream in the 80's in the films of Joe Dante and has continued knocking them out until the present day. This good natured documentary recounts Miller's career and includes lots of clips from the films he starred in. It also focuses on the many people he worked with too. The clips are a lot of fun and showcase the variety of flicks Miller was involved in, his body of work is bound to include a several films you will have seen before and it certainly will also have a few you haven't even heard of. Miller himself is a great guy and someone who is a lot of fun to spend a little time with, he is accompanied mostly by his long term wife Lainie Miller, who I was shocked to discover played the stunningly gorgeous stripper in The Graduate┬ůoh yes indeed. On top of this we have several contributions from an array of other folks such as Corey Feldman, Fred Olen Ray and Mary Woronov, amongst many others. Overall, this is a fun, charming film biography. Even if you don't know much about Dick himself, give it a whirl anyway, you'll have a good time. Who's that guy? It's Dick Miller of course.

Wonderful career retrospective

THAT GUY DICK MILLER is a fitting career retrospective for long-term cult actor Dick Miller, who incredibly made his first movie in 1955 and hasn't looked back since. I've long been a fan of Miller and have seen him in plenty of classics like A BUCKET OF BLOOD, PIRANHA, LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS, THE TERMINATOR, plus all of those Joe Dante extravaganzas, so this was a case of 'filling in the blanks' for me.

What's most surprised about this documentary is how professional it looks for a film funded on Kickstarter. There's nary a slow moment as the film starts at the outset of Miller's career and goes through to the present day. The candid shots of an impossibly old Miller at home with his still beautiful wife and dog are wonderfully interspersed with clips illustrating his various movies: war films, westerns, horror flicks, comedies, sexploitation movies, they're all featured here. There's also a wealth of interview footage with famous faces who have worked with Miller, including a sprightly Roger Corman, Joe Dante, and many more, plus humour in spades. THAT GUY DICK MILLER is a fitting celebration of one of the screen's most underrated talents.
