[on the character Max Rockatansky] He’s all of us, amplified. Each of us in our own way is looking for meaning in a chaotic world. He’s got that one instinct-to survive. After the first Mad Max (1979), we went to Japan and they said, “We know this character, he’s a ronin, like a samurai.” In Scandinavia they called him a lone, wandering Viking. To others he’s a classic American Western figure. [2015]

[on Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)] In the 30-odd years since not only has the world changed, cinema has changed. The way we experience films has changed. And I’ve changed too. [2015]

The way I think of filmmaking – it’s such a seductive thing. It encompasses every human discipline you can imagine – composition, art, technology, music, movement and choreography. It encompasses all life. We are the servants of the zeitgeist and we live in a chaotic world. There is so much information coming at you, we are trying to find resonances out there to create some kind of meaning. Stories are a way of distilling something out of all that bombardment. They are a way of finding signal in the noise. That’s very seductive. Very.
