A perfect example of how confident filmmaking can overshadow imperfections in a film. While The Infiltrator suffers from stilted pacing, some strange dialogue, and a bloated runtime, it still feels entertaining thanks to the taut direction and a great performance from Bryan Cranston.
Well damn. That was quite a film. Fury Road manages to be entertaining with its action and profound with its storytelling. It's not a "blow you away, make you rethink life" kind of film, but it does rip your eyes from their sockets and captivate you from start to finish.
If that's not a mark of a masterpiece, I don't know what is.
