For all the Mad Max fans out there …… the opening scene for the original masterpiece.
“The Halls of Justice and the garage reveal a great deal about the world of Mad Max. The Halls of Justice effectively conveys the decaying authority of law and order in an increasingly harsh world. Its courtyard reflects the growing severity of civilized existence, where individual freedoms are fast succumbing to a society dominated by cutthroat survival. In contrast, the garage reveals the dark, primitive impulses and drives which underlay surface society. Only here the values of the new world are totally revealed; survival will cease to be about money, but instead will involve industrial goods. The mechanics, the people charged with keeping the machines working, will rise to new levels of prominence, as they are the only ones with knowledge enough to construct new machines from scattered parts of the old. Existence will no longer mean lawful and lawless, but will blur into a confused struggle to survive.”
