Synopsis

Ten years after a global economic collapse, a cold-blooded drifter traverses the scorched Australian outback on a mission to track down the men who stole his last remaining possession - his car. When he crosses paths with a badly wounded member of the gang, he takes the vulnerable, naïve young man along as his unwitting accomplice.

Plenty of dust and grime, not enough heart

The outback has never looked so desolate...which really says something. At first, the dust and grimness sucked me in; the movie was like an apocalyptic version of Of Mice and Men. But that story had far more heart than this one. And in the end, that is precisely what this film needed: heart.

Strange bedfellows chasing cars

Pearce, as the Protagonist, delivers a strong performance. I have come expect this from him. His character seethes and silently wrestles with rage throughout. Though there is no real scope to display range, his delivery is authentic, making the character believable. Pattison gives an engaging performance, this was unexpected. He did well not to overact and allow his character, Rey, to drift into caricature or start mugging. The movie has the spare, unforgiving Western nowhereness you'd associate with Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy -transposed to Australia. The Protagonist pursues the stolen car with the same desperate relentlessness Billy pursues his father's stolen horse in The Crossing. I watched this movie when it came out first and enjoyed it more perhaps on my recent second viewing. The reviews I have read are polarised; I can't relate to much of the criticism and I can't say the film is exceptional. It is entertaining with decent production values, great cinematography. The dialogue is sparse, the lack of tropes is refreshing. A strong lead performance and good support. Well worth watching.

Homosexual Propaganda

What started off as a potential retelling of Mad Max quickly turned into a propaganda film.

I had to stop the movie at 20 minutes in, after seeing 3 different homosexual scenes, the last one being 'grandma' offering up her young grandsons for sex with the main lead, a man.

Avoid this like the Bubonic Plague.

Underrated movie. If you're interested in movies that explore their characters more, and really want to dive in into the psychology then this movie is for you. the characters feel like actual people, rather than blank slates who say one thing and then tend to do the other thing. It's about a man going through the terrible life itself, to get his stolen car back. the acting is superb and cinematography is on point. Just don't bother watching this movie if you think the marvel movies are good.
