Yesterday, I watched Mad Max: Fury Road for the first time in at least a year, and though it must be my sixth or seventh time seeing the film now, the sheen just does not wear off. The experience just doesn’t get any less mindblowing. If anything, my regard for George Miller’s steam-shooting, fire-breathing, metal-groaning, freak of nature miracle masterpiece only keeps growing with every additional viewing. This time, I couldn’t help but be mesmerised by just how spellbindingly beautiful the film looks. Cinematographer John Seale and editor Margaret Sixel worked with Miller to craft one of the most kinetic and breakneck movies ever made that also happens to be one of the most strikingly aesthetically pleasing films ever committed to the screen. Nigh on every shot is a work of art, each a wonderfully composed spectacle that works perfectly in tandem with the script to create this powerfully convincing, lived-in world.

It’s in the spirit of visual perfection that is Mad Max: Fury Road that we turn to a Twitter thread I found a lot of fun going through, started by a prompt by writer Luke Hearfield, who asked people to ponder that movie shot could summarise the word ‘cool’.
