Mad Max (1979)

I submit the original Mad Max (1979) as a contender for you review as a ‘weird movie’.  I once read that of one reviewer who had watched it contended it had ‘a weird atmosphere’, and after all these years and multiple viewings, I’m afraid they’re right.

Apart from the (ground breaking) filming techniques, the characters and dialog appear to be (effectively) translated from another film.  The preposterous contention of the assailants that law and order is keeping them from ‘being proud’ and violence is merely a means to and end is nothing new – but the way it is transmitted here is.

Purely FYI
