It’s not Mad Max, but this film does take place in Austrailia a decade after a global collapse. Guy Pearce plays a dour, dirty traveler of few words and violent action. When three men steal his car, he chases after them with a “halfwit,” interestingly played by Robert Pattison. Everything about this film is gritty and grim: the people, the look, even the attitude. Director David Michôd has crafted it with an assured hand that makes it compelling, even with the tedious pacing and minimal explanations. He loves to hold long closeups of Pattinson as he ruminates. (Criterion Cinema only)
