Wednesday 2 January, 3pm | Arc Cinema | All Tickets $10
2015 | MA15+ | 120mins | Australia/USA | D: George Miller
The colour-stripped version of George Miller’s Fury Road, the latest entry in the Mad Max franchise and deserved winner of six Oscars.
“The Black & Chrome Edition is based off the ‘slash dupe’ made available to the sound team for scoring and foley work, and the result is a colourless image where the ‘white’ spaces seem almost to gleam like silver, and the edges of darker objects have the gritty buzz of hastily-scratched pencil work. Black and white film can look cold and sterile; this looks like oil on a hot engine (…).This new look only confirms it – Fury Road is a modern classic that will ride forever, shiny and chrome, on the highways of Valhalla. Audience reaction will determine whether the Black & Chrome Edition is definitive; we can only tell that it is essential.” – Filmink
