A woman rebels against a tyrannical ruler in postapocalyptic Australia in search for her home-land with the help of a group of female prisoners, a psychotic worshipper, and a drifter named Max.
Included among the "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", edited by Steven Schneider.
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.
Furiosa talks about a "160 day" ride across the salt desert, on their fully loaded motorcycles. This makes no sense; as (a) they simply couldn't carry enough gasoline for that length of time - motorcycles get 30-50mpg, and the bikes couldn't possibly carry more than 50 gallons each, (b) they couldn't carry enough water for that period of time (humans require about a half gallon per day), and, most importantly, (c) no desert on earth is anywhere near that possible distance. In fact, presuming that they could indeed ride the entire time, a 160-day ride across a hard-surface desert (600 miles/day) is sufficient to circle earth almost FOUR TIMES. A 160 day WALK at a relatively easy pace (10 hours/day, 3mph) will still cover a distance almost TWICE the length of Australia, and would be sufficient to travel from Korea to Germany across the breadth of Asia.
