George Miller's directorial debut is a singular piece of action cinema, one which had a major cultural impact and spawned a movie icon in Max Rockatansky (played by Mel Gibson). This monograph will examine the film's  Read more...

George Miller\'s directorial debut is a singular piece of action cinema, one which had a major cultural impact and spawned a movie icon in Max Rockatansky (played by Mel Gibson). This monograph will examine the film\'s considerable formal qualities in detail, including Miller\'s theory of cinema as \"visual rock n roll\" and his marriage of classical Hollywood editing and Soviet-style montage. George Miller is arguably the single most important filmmaker in Australia\'s history, bringing a commercial and artistic vision to the screen few of his compatriots have ever managed before or since. Taking in everything from the film\'s extremely controversial critical reception to its legacy today, via a string of sequels and the creation of an entire subgenre the post-apocalyptic actioner, the book is for film students and fans alike.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/8897530511<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Criticism, interpretation, etc.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/8897530511#Series\/constellations_leighton_buzzard_england<\/a>> ; # Constellations (Leighton Buzzard, England)<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/8897530511#Series\/constellations<\/a>> ; # Constellations<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Mad Max<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1135632447<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781911325864<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1135632447<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
