This brutally nihilistic thriller is set several years in the future as society has begun to break down into anarchy. Guy Pearce (Memento) plays a mysterious survivor who goes hunting for the gang that stole his car. He's accompanied by a dimwitted young man (Robert Pattinson from the Twilight films) left for dead by the killer criminals. This violent, arid, taciturn, curiously arty Mad Max riff is the sophomore effort of testosterone-heavy Australian director David Michod (Animal Kingdom). 102 minutes R.
