  • Mad Max: Fury Road

    Mad Max: Fury Road 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 28 May, 2015

    Bloody violence, insane, testosterone-fuelled war machines, and frantic action from the first minute to the last, Mad Max: Fury Road feels every bit a man's world, but it would be nothing without the badass women with the guns.

    In the same way as Guillermo Del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth), Shane Meadows (This Is England) and Isao Takahata (Grave of Fireflies), Brian Percival’s The Book Thief is a tear-jerking, heavy-hitting, adult drama shown through the eyes of an innocent child. It’s as much a harrowing exploration of war as it is a poignant tale about a spirited and courageous child’s fight for her own sense of humanity in such inhuman surroundings. Sensational.
