Film Review - Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga


2015’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” was long in the making and delivered the goods, successfully reviving the “Mad Max” series with an epic depiction of Wasteland war and survival challenges. Director George Miller couldn’t win all of his storytelling battles, but the sequel was a major filmmaking achievement, generating a glorious level of chaos while remaining intimate, to a certain degree, with character motivations. Instead of moving forward with the franchise, following Max to the next adventure, Miller (and co-writer Nick Lathouris) goes the prequel route, turning his attention to Furiosa, originally portrayed by Charlize Theron. Now played by Anya Taylor-Joy and Alyla Browne, the character takes control of “Furiosa,” which has Miller pumping the brakes on the series, electing to explore a multi-chapter study of a life corrupted and a world finding new order in the midst of mayhem. One doesn’t necessarily need this understanding of Furiosa, but the helmer brings the goods with outstanding action sequences and marvelous performances. It’s a literary-style take on the universe of “Mad Max,” watching Miller work on world-building and power plays. Read the rest at
