I agree that Fury Road is rad, but respectful and already established equality between the male and female leads isn't the same as "smashing the patriarchy" and all that bull. They're just 2 characters who happen to be the opposite genders and have a inherent mutual respect for each other's equality. As it should be really.
…furiosa murders the literal embodiment of the white male patriarchy - rips his face off, and then she and six other women + the milking mothers seize control of the citadel and are welcomed as the new rulers by the general population, who cheer them for overthrowing the dictator who’d enslaved them, brainwashed their sons and withheld resources to keep them under his control. I’d consider that smashing the patriarchy.
