197DCP|AUS | D: George Miller 
 
In a not-too-distant dystopian future – with the world plunged into war, famine and financial chaos – the last vestiges of the law in Australia attempt to restrain a vicious biker gang.   
  
Max (Mel Gibson), an officer with the Main Force Patrol, launches a personal vendetta against the gang when his wife (Joanne Samuel) and son are hunted down and murdered, leaving him with nothing but his instincts for survival and retribution.  
  
It's hard to overstate the influence of Mad Max on filmmakers, action cinema and the trajectory of Australian movies. Made for a paltry AUD380,000 by George Miller in 1979, the independently funded film for a time held the Guinness World Record for the highest box-office-to-budget ratio of any motion picture.   
  
Miller’s feature directorial debut, Mad Max started the iconic franchise which continues to this day, over 40 years later.   
 
‘Though the plot is that of a simple revenge western, director George Miller infuses the film with a kinetic combination of visual style, amazing stunt work, creative costume design, and eccentric, detailed characterizations…’ – TV Guide Magazine 

This film is part of our Ozploitation series. Wild, unpredictable filmmaking full of explosions and stunts.
