MAD MAX, the film which brought Mel Gibson into world-wide prominence, depicts a futuristic world of chaos on the roads, dominated by motorcycle gangs, one of which is pursued by the vengeful cop known as Mad Max. Max and the gang's worlds converge when the gang wants Max as badly as he wants them, especially after they target him for the death of their former leader.

C'mon, just because the guy's an anti-semite and all 'round loathsome pig generally; let's not underrate a quite significant film as a result.

So far as I can tell an artist's moral failings don't seem to have affected—quite properly IMO, this site's ratings of, for example, L. Riefenstahl's and W. Allen's work.

(Hell, Gibson didn't even direct or produce the thing.)

Uri Avnery, former member of the Israeli Knesset has stated that antisemitism barely exists in this day in age. He's right. And Max Blumenthal has stated that "Islamophobia is the new antisemitism." He's also right. Gibson also knows who runs Ziowood (and who makes the crappiest product in the business. ;)

Toecutter is my new favorite villain and I'm so glad this film is now a part of my life. As poet Matthew Lavigne says, "Toecutter normalizes the psychotic in a way that is deep-down terrifying. He's one of the best villains of all time."
