Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road

Holy crap what did I even just watch.

My brain is tired now, just from all the processing of spectacle.

Even if you've got a strong aversion to dystopian post-apocalyptic wastelands -- and I am very definitely in that camp -- it is worth overcoming to see this movie. It is exceptionally well-done. Like, in terms of being the kind of movie that it sets out to be, it gets a perfect score. It know exactly what it's doing, to the point that there are all kinds of crazy things that you just accept without hesitation, because the movie is so sure of itself.

Also some gorgeous beauty in between the explosions and mind-blowing violence.

Did I mention it's also deeply feminist in multiple awesome ways?

Wow.
