Ten years after a global economic collapse, a cold-blooded drifter traverses the scorched Australian outback on a mission to track down the men who stole his last remaining possession - his car.

I LOVED this film ! It is a dark, bleak, mature , violent film yet it is uncompromising and unflinching in the way it tells its tale.I found it to be a blend of Mad Max, Drive, Apocalypse Now, and Of Mice and Men. Guy Pearce portrays a man as a feral drifter; a wounded, rabid animal; a monstrous creature who has lost everything. He does this to perfection. Rob Pattinson plays a slow, bullied kid from America's South to a tee! He was simply superb in his nuances, facial tics, stuttering , and accent to portray a scared, fearful , dependent yet ever-so- hopeful kid. He is the glue to the film. He is the soul . It is these two and their journey that IS the film. It is the anarchy of the souls. Amongst all the bleakness of the post-collapse world, it hints of the elements of hope, faith, and love. . the need for human connection. If you like seeing good strong, smart films with quality acting, then go see this incredible movie ! The cinematography and musical score are very unique !
