    Exhilarating, frenetic, visually inventive and utterly insane, Fury Road is definitely an experience. George Miller, unlike most contemporary directors, gives you all the important information about the film's crazy post-apocalyptic world through creative and incredibly detailed visual storytelling. There is no unnecessary exposition or forced conflicts between the characters.

    Tom Hardy gives another of his typically intense performances as Max. Communicating mostly through grunts and whispering utterances, he provides a more tormented and unstable version of the character than Gibson. Charlize Theron gives a commanding and strong performance as Imperator Furiosa, who actually proves to be the film's main character.

    John Seale's breathtaking cinematography also proves essential to establishing this ravaged world, with an abundance of saturated oranges and blues. The action, as the trailers repeatedly proved, is deranged, excessive and jaw-dropping. With the exception of a couple of brief moments, it always maintains visual geography, a fact I always appreciate. There's an insane amount of world building, far more than in the previous Mad Max installments, and there's also a guy with a FLAME-THROWING guitar, who's there for the only reason that it looks cool and completely demented.

    It's actually fascinating that a film of this scale, visual creativity, all-around craziness and with a feminist approach got financed by a major studio and with a $150 million budget no less.

    (1979) Hey, let's give this George Miller guy 300,000 and see what he comes up with.

    (1981) Wow. Not bad. Here, have 4.5 million

    Hm. This guy doesn't seem too bad at making films. Let's wait a while before we give him anymore.

    (2013) Okay. Fine. Here's 150 million. Have fun, kid

    (2015) HOLY. SHIT.
