Brian Trenchard-Smith reviews Mad Max: Fury Road
In this edition of the web series Trailers from Hell, filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith reviews Mad Max: Fury Road.
He gives a brief overview of the previous Mad Max films and the plot of the latest instalment. This is largely provided as a voice-over while showing the trailer for the movie.
Trenchard-Smith's review is highly insightful, as you would expect from a filmmaker with 22 feature films to his credit. It makes for very informative viewing as he refers to the art, craft and history of filmmaking and storytelling.
Trenchard-Smith's presenting in the first minute, however, is a bit disconcerting as he reads from a teleprompter positioned just off camera.
Trailers from Hell started life as a website in 2007 and also premiered at SXSW (South by Southwest Festival) in 2009.
