While I am a big Howard fan myself, I am really only interested in this documentary for the Milius interview. Most Howard purists are always going to have a problem with the '82 movie. It made such a cultural impact that the character is mostly now associated with Arnold and Milius' dialogue. How many times have we heard the famous Genghis Khan quote; "Crush your enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women"? Most purists will point to the wheel of pain scene in horror. They cry foul when Conan seemingly "prays" to Crom at the battle of the mounds. They stare in slack jawed disbelief when, according to them, he cries piteously at the feet of Thulsa Doom, wailing- "You kilt my farder, you kilt my mudder- you kilt my people! You took my farder's sword..." The list goes on. But, I think, the main rankle of contention with these fans is that the film is good and actually succeeds in portraying Howard's work without adhering strictly to the source material. Yet, for all that, there is still a lot of Howard in the movie if you know where to look- and not all of it just taken from Conan stories. The movie is a deserved classic of the genre, as much as Howard's original stories were when they were first published in WEIRD TALES. Even 33 years later it still towers head and shoulders above the crowd.
