• Apocalypse Wow: The Fury Road To Max Rockatansky’s Rebirth

    Like its eponymous wandering haunted hero, hooked up intravenously to Warboy Nux, Mad Max:Fury Road has provided a shot in the arm and jolt to the gonads of action cinema. And not just action – the spectacle, verve, colour and pared down themes recalling and improving on so much of the 100 + years of […]

  • Scoring The Chase: The Music Of Mad Max: Fury Road

    One of the many amazing elements of Mad Max: Fury Road is the incredible score, a riot of “an insane rock opera” according to composer Junkie XL, AKA Tom Holkenborg. One that at times fuses with the immense drum / guitar rig that powers Immortan Joe’s Warboys on their chase after Max, Furiosa and the […]

  • Paradise Lost: A tribute to Empire of the Sun

    During the early 1980s Steven Spielberg’s body of work were mainly studies in innocence, with a deep desire contained within to remain just so. Then in the mid 1980s something happened. Spielberg was suddenly addressing loss and grief. From 1985 until 1989, he was clearly in a sad mood. In 1985 The Color Purple had […]

  • The Great Unmade? The Wind In The Willows

    In the 1990’s, director Steven Barron intended to create a live-action film version of Kenneth Grahame’s anthropomorphic English pastoral classic, The Wind In The Willows.

  • Scene Is Believing: Mad Max: Fury Road

    In this clip from Mad Max: Fury Road, via The New York Times, director George Miller discusses the tensions between Tom Hardy’s Max and Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa. Max at this point is chained to Nicholas Hoult’s’s unconscious Warboy Nux, as a permanent “blood bank”. Max understandably wants freed; Furiosa feels Max will either hinder […]

  • Mad Max: Fury Road – Review

    There is a scene at the start of Fury Road that chimed with me all the way through the film and still now sticks in my craw. The raggedy, frail and dehydrated-to-the-point-of-death people of the Citadel wait with baited breath as Immortan Joe gives the signal for the War Boys to release gallon upon gallon […]

  • Archive Interview: George Miller on Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

      Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome is a curio in the Mad Max canon – with a softening of the violence, a tribe of kids akin to The Lost Boys, and a Tina Turner power ballad. In October 1985 Anne Billson interviewed director George Miller for Time out (he actually shared the load with George Ogilvie, […]
