Mad Max: Fury Road


SOM 123[SOM #123]

We had planned to release The Lost World this week but Mad Max: Fury Road appeared out of nowhere and turned out to be rather special. So we broke suddenly, veered off the road, picked up a couple of passengers and thundered into an epic analysis review.

We begin with a 45 minute discussion of the original Mad Max trilogy, all of which contain elements that found their way into this new incarnation. You can listen to that without spoiling the new movie, but then go see it and come back for the next act.

I lay down my thoughts on the meta-story that developed upon its release, specifically it’s detractors and the symbolism that layers on as a result. After that we talk long and hard about every aspect of this astonishing and deeply surprising new blockbuster. Surprising both in how the story develops and its sheer quality and fulfilled ambition. This is a film we want absolutely everyone to see.

Joshua Garrity of Cane and Rise and James Perkins of GameBurst and AltViewMovies on guesting duty provide brilliant insight and enthusiasm to the mix. Check out their shows. And we’ll be back with the dinosaurs next week with The Lost World.

  1. Im only 40 mins in, but as you seemed to have credited quite a bit to the legacy of this series you should consider watching “A body and his dog” if you haven’t already. While certainly not the first post-apocalyptic film its pretty clear that the mad max series and especially Fallout cribbed a fair bit from it.
