I’ve never actually sat down and watched the original Mad Max fully through. Usually other people have had it on in the background, while I’ve been doing other stuff. Of course I know the general outline, but the sequels have always held my attention more.
As well as being a goddamn classic, with amazing action, and a plot wound so tightly it could be part of the Spanish Inquisition, it’s also a seriously odd movie.
Example one, the boss wearing nothing but a leather apron, nips exposed, as he chomps a cigar and waters plants during Max’s resignation speech.
I’d add the random saxophone solos to the oddness, but it was the 70s. 😆
