Two years ago today
Mad Max Fury Road was released.
I, and I suspect most people, went to the cinema expecting an action movie starring Tom Hardy. What we got was a complete surprise. A two-hour car chase starring more women than men, some of the women OLD, none of them relying on men to rescue them, but co-operating to save themselves. Or not, but refusing to back down or be cowed by male power and corruption.
And it was GORGEOUS.
It was PROFOUND.
It repaid multiple rewatches.
It swept the Academy Awards.
It enraged “men’s rights activists”.
It is GLORIOUS and we’re watching it again tonight.
9pm EDT, in the Inception Slack chat room. Come and relive the glory.
