Bad guys actually make use of a minstrel.
Only George Miller
At times the road melée put self in mind of Cirque du Soleil. Especially the pole riders.
Again, only George Miller
Five ethereal damsels who seem to have walked straight out of the pages of Vogue sit in an oil rig.
Once again, only George Miller.
People spray their mouths with . . . something. Shiny. Seems to make them bat-shit crazy. Self means, crazier than they already are.
GM, again genius.
There IS, in this movie, mention of the following: Valhalla, breeders, bags of sun, dying “historic” and half-life.
Charlize Theron at the end seems to have lost an eye. Thankfully, the eyelid is closed.
Woman gets shot in the leg. Charlize: “How does it feel?” Shot woman: “It hurts.” Charlize: “Out here, everything hurts.”

The smearing of black across the cheekbones somehow translates to: I’m coming for you, a**holes. And I will CRUSH you. Exhibit A: Charlize
Because out there in the wasteland, symbolic gestures are everything.
Tom Hardy finally gets to give his growl maximum (and welcome) exposure.
Self can’t even.
