“Mad Max – Fury Road”: a magnificent explosion of insanity 9/10

One of my favourite moments in “Mad Max – Fury Road” comes when a gigantic armoured truck (or “war rig”) roars past a desolate swamp inhabited by stilt-walking mutants.

The mutants continue their mysterious swamp-wading activities as the truck zooms by.

The mutants are not explained.  The shot lasts a few seconds.

But the scene sums up much that is magnificent in the explosion of insanity which is Mad Max: Fury Road.  If you’re going to set a movie in an imagined post-apocalyptic world, you’d better make that world look exotic, gritty and all-round awesome from start to finish.

Tick.
