Road Warrior/ Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome
Before the controversy that gave him the nickname "Mad Mel," the director of The Passion of the Christ put the pedal to the medal as the leather-clad post-apocalyptic hero of the Mad Max trilogy. The gritty, gripping thrill ride begins with the sequel The Road Warrior (Bruce Spence. 1981/94 min.) and races on at breakneck speed in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (Tina Turner. 1985/107 min.).
