Mad Max Video Essay

Another film student take on the action spectacular, this video essay clearly states its own personal preferences and employs a more lighthearted tone.

The characteristics of the film’s framing are discussed – again – in this essay. But it also addresses the characters, and tries to place its reading of those characters within the feminist framework within which the film has often been discussed and analyzed. Interestingly, this video essayist also praises the movie for its restraint, not a term that was bandied about freely in other takes on Mad Max: Fury Road.
