Here, the importance of the film’s camera work is highlighted as Ruiz has mashed together a bunch of the push-in and pull-back shots featured in Fury Road. There are some spoilery items featured throughout the above video, so tread lightly.
You’ve got your dolly shots and then you’ve got your dolly shots. What transpires throughout Mad Max: Fury Road feels like a psychotic adrenaline spiking melange of all of the best kinetic movements one can physically put a camera through.
