ACMI Presents

Mad Max: Fury Road

George Miller | Australia | | MA15+
Film

At 70 years old, George Miller makes a modern masterpiece by reinventing his own creation and blowing up the conventions of blockbuster filmmaking.

“Hope is a mistake,” says Tom Hardy’s reimagined Max Rockatansky. “If you can't fix what's broken, you'll go insane.” A fitting line in the context of the film, but also outside of it as well, with visionary Australian filmmaker George Miller bringing his long-tortured production to completion with Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). A cul-de-sac of a movie, it follows Imperator Furiosa (Charlize Theron) as she drives across a post-Apocalyptic wasteland with some willing passengers – The Wives (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, Riley Keough, Courtney Eaton, Abbey Lee) – and some not-so-willing – Max (Hardy) and Nux (Nicholas Hoult). With a who’s who of Australian character actors thrown in as villains and allies alike, the pace is as relentless as the War Rig charging from – and then eventually back to – its starting destination.

Where must we go... we who wander this Wasteland in search of our better selves?

The First History Man, Mad Max: Fury Road

Nominated for 10 Academy Awards – and winning six – there’s not much to say about Mad Max: Fury Road that hasn’t already been loudly and enthusiastically said. A testament to the singular creative vision and stamina of Miller, it’s more than just a visual spectacular. The contributions of key women throughout the creative team – editor Margaret Sixel and costume designer Jenny Beavan – help breathe new life into what was once a testosterone-loaded franchise, making something modern, something feminist, and something truly unique that remains timeless long after the (literal) dust has settled.
