"I myself will carry you to the gates of Valhalla... you will ride eternal, shiny, and chrome!” This week on The Script, our script doctors analyze the resurrection of our favorite 80’s dystopian franchise with Mad Max: Fury Road. Is this possibly the biggest budget independent film of all time? If there is no screenplay does it mean there is no screenwriting? What is the right action scene / character development scenes ratio (Hint: don’t ask Man of Steel, ask Fury Road)? Why is a lack of exposition actually respectful of your audience? This film has all the elements… Blood, Water, Milk, Oil, and Chrome. Flaming Guitarist for President 2016!

VICE Talks Film: George Miller on 'Mad Max: Fury Road'
Published on May 17, 2015
Welcome to our first installment of VICE Talks Film, the series where we sit down with the most talented and creative minds in the movie world to discuss their work and how they're seeking to push the boundaries of the medium. In this episode, we caught up with director George Miller, creator of movies like Happy Feet, Babe, and of course the mythic Mad Max series. Now he's back with his lastest venture Mad Max: Fury Road—which some have called a badass feminist action flick. We talked to the 70-year-old director about the challenges he faced in recreating the Wasteland, his new crop of iconic characters, the insane practical stunts and why it took 17 years to make this movie happen.
George Miller has directed just 10 films in 36 years. Four are about Max Rockatansky. (Also, two Happy Feet, Twilight Zone, Lorenzo's Oil, Witches of Eastwick, Babe: Pig In The City) This time, 30 years since the last Max film, there is a new Max, a new kind of villain, and Max's first sidekick who (at least) is his equal. George discusses the new film, the new technology, the evolution of the choices of films he has made over these decades, and the low point of his Hollywood experience.
