Legendary Oscar-winning cinematographer John Seale came out of retirement to partner with gonzo filmmaker George Miller for the long-in-the-works MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. After experiencing the electrifying end result, it's not hard to see why he did. A visually maximalist, narratively minimalist post-apocalyptic adrenaline rush of pure cinema, the fourth entry in this legendary franchise is a fever dream of insane action sequences, crisply and imaginatively shot by Seale (Oscar-nominated for his work). A deeply pleasurable assault on the senses that was deservingly hailed as a landmark in action cinema, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is the result of a filmmaker and his team who adventured to the cliff of madness and lived to give audiences a glimpse of what was over the edge.
