George Miller´s diesel-driven outback Death Wish, set in a dismal not-too-distant future Australia, made a star of brooding, lantern-jawed leading man Mel Gibson. Highway patrolman Max Rockatansky (Gibson) is driven to take the law into his own hands, riding hell-bent for leather (and vengeance) after the motorcycle gang who snuffed his family, led by Hugh Keays-Byrne, later the Immortan Joe of megasequel Fury Road, whose epic grandeur sprang from this tough and dirty shoestring dystopia.
