MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

Double Feature with THE ASSASSIN

(2015) dir George Miller w/Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Riley Keough, Zoë Kravitz, John Howard, Nathan Jones [120 min; 35mm]
Ten Nominations – Academy Awards 2016George Miller’s triumphant return to the franchise that he started almost 40 years ago is one of the best action films of the year – if not the decade. In FURY ROAD, Max (Hardy) is captured by the War Boys, a gang of almost feral warriors led by the imposing Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Soon, Max finds himself at the heart of a plot lead by the formidable Imperator Furiosa (Theron) to free Joe’s young wives from his abusive clutches.

“Perhaps the strongest takeaway from the established masculinity in MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is that it works in harmony with the film’s feminism. Both men and women can be strong and work together. One’s strength is not the other’s weakness, rather, they are stronger when collaborating.” Deirdre Crimmins writes about masculinity in the world of MAD MAX: FURY ROAD for Brattle Film Notes.

“FURY ROAD is not content to paint all men in a negative light. This is not a black and white situation. The film becomes an insightful criticism of toxic masculinity culture and how patriarchy spreads its harmfulness all over.” Manish Mathur writes about MAD MAX: FURY ROAD for Brattle Film Notes.
