Director George Miller says he has always wanted to make a “Mad Max” movie in black and white. Now he has his wish with “Mad Max: Fury Road — Black and Chrome Edition.”
The revamped movie comes out Tuesday on Blu-ray as part of a two-disc set with the regular movie ($30) or in an all-encompassing “Mad Max High Octane Collection” ($80; DVD, $55), which also contains the three earlier movies starring Mel Gibson.
The monochromatic version of "Fury Road," which won more Oscars (six) than any other movie earlier this year, paints a post-apocalyptic world that looks stark, abstract and hopeless. It's an ideal look for the end of the world.
“It’s the best version of the movie,” the director says in an intro. This viewer agrees.
