My name is Max. My world is fire and blood. Once, I was a cop. A road warrior searching for a righteous cause. As the world fell, each of us in our own way was broken. It was hard to know who was more crazy... me... or everyone else.
When Max pulls up Nux's hand to the window of his vehicle with the chain it's in a sideways position. In the next close up shot, his fingers are facing away from Max as he approaches him.
