||Mad Max 1
||In post nuclear war Australia Max comes across a fortified community in the desert that has an oil well and a primitive refinery, but it is being besieged by a group of armed itinerants and their wild vehicles. To allow the group to escape he agrees to provide a decoy by driving an armed road tanker off into the desert.
||Lots of moderate violence, cars and wild vehicles dashing across the desert. Very little dialogue. Apparently Mel Gibson only had 16 lines.
||It is, in many ways, a prototype for Fury Road. Max has a delightful dog, which was found in a dog pound and trained for its part, and afterwards was taken home by a camera man. It is watchable, but very noisy (the dog had to wear earplugs).
