With 2011 almost at an end, what mysteries will be found in 2012? Just in case the next year sees society fall apart and motocycle-riding vandals rise to power in a chaos-filled wasteland full of rape, looting and Lord Humungus, it's probably a good idea to watch THE ROAD WARRIOR this January. You know, for tips.
'80s INSANITY is a new national Alamo series curated by Zack Carlson and Lars Nilsen. A tour of some of the best '80s movies ever made, '80s INSANITY will be your guide to remembering the parts of the decade that didn't suck. Chief among the highlights of the '80s is THE ROAD WARRIOR, George Miller's 1981 sequel to his classic MAD MAX. Starring Mel Gibson before he went crazy and directed violent religious epics, THE ROAD WARRIOR features the immortal badass that is Mad Max, hero of the Australian desert and scourge of criminal marauders everywhere.
There's a reason why filmmakers such as Guillermo del Toro, David Fincher, Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron list the film as one of their favorites. Filled with car smashing, explosions and a legion of stuntmen willing to put their lives in mortal danger for the sake of a great action scene, THE ROAD WARRIOR is required viewing for any that consider themselves genre fans.
This January, we'll be screening the film twice — giving you no excuse to go any further in your life without having seen the majestic might that is MAD MAX 2 (what the film was called for non-Yanks). Whether it's your favorite film or you are a virgin to the post-apocalypitic Australian wasteland, we'll see you at THE ROAD WARRIOR this January.
