Mad Max: Fury Road

The fourth instalment of George Miller’s punky post-apocalyptic ‘Mad Max’ saga feels like a tornado tearing through a tea party. In an age of weightless movie spectacles, here’s a movie that feels like it was made by kidnapping $150 million of studio money, fleeing with it to the Namibian desert, and sending footage back to Hollywood like the amputated body parts of a ransomed hostage...

Hyena

On the surface, the London-set crime thriller ‘Hyena’ has moving parts familiar from the workings of many a murky cop film: a dodgy policeman and his even dodgier boss; an unscrupulous civil servant; brutal Albanian drugs dealers; and a helpless female victim of a sex trafficking ring...
