Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

Max’s expression here though: ‘yup, she’s got it under control.’  He’s observant, but he’s not worried – all that tightly wound terror is gone.  Furiosa can be relied upon.

I think Max relates to what Furiosa is going through. 

She previously caused people to be killed on the war rig, and pushed that carload of war boys into the dust-storm lightning tornado. And she shot a bunch of Rockriders in the canyon, as well as that imperator who shielded Joe with his body. But all that was in the heat of battle. This is the first time she’s killed her former comrades in cold blood.

Max avoids killing when he can. He knows Furiosa had no choice in this case. But it still hurts her to do it. Her expression as she lowers the rifle reminds me of that scene in Saving Private Ryan when Captain Miller lets the German soldier go free, saying, “I just know that every man I kill the farther away from home I feel.”

Max and Furiosa are each trying to get home, in the sense of getting back to a place they dimly remember where they didn’t have to do these kinds of things. In this scene, like in the later scene when Max returns from dealing with the Peacemaker and the roles are reversed, I think each of them recognizes the pain the other is feeling.

#“fuck this eardrum in particular”

Fanfic where Max suggests Furiosa keep on using his right shoulder as a rifle stand since that ear’s pretty stuffed at this point…

I choose to read this as deliberate subversion of male lead “shoots” between female lead’s legs. George can tell me personally he never intended it that way and I will be:

1. Reception theory

2. Clearly your subconscious mind did

I totally didn’t realize he was shooting between her legs. Awesome.

I love how this whole “skeet shooting the Rock Riders” part gets so over the top. Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but I want to laugh each time I see it. The gunplay gets so action-movie trope-y that I feel like it must have been intended to be funny. Maybe it’s the sped-up editing that does that; there are moments when it starts to feel like an undercranked Benny Hill chase scene.

But of course it all makes sense, too, and the actors play it deadpan serious. So maybe finding it funny is just a me-thing.

Has anyone seen any good pics/screencaps of Miss Giddy? I need a reference for another tarot card design I’m working on and I cannot find one for the life of me.

Here are some screen caps from the “Wives” featurette:

I believe there are some details of her tattoos (which are historical documentation covering most of her body) in the “Art of…” book, but my copy of that hasn’t arrived yet.
