The Road Warrior (1981)


Every time fashion week rolls around, designers and commentators alike usually spout out a bunch of influences on the collections.  Certain key inspirations seem to pop up over and over again and it’s almost impossible to include a leather anything in your collection without someone mentioning The Road Warrior.

We have a sneaking suspicion that a lot of these people who reference the film have never actually sat down and watched it in its entirety, which is a shame because it is one of the Greatest of All Time.  Although it is a sequel to Mad Max, you need not see the first movie.  Mad Max is a badass: there, I just caught you up on the whole first film… you are now ready to enjoy The Road Warrior.

Is it sometimes violent?  Yes.  Is it sometimes corny?  Yes.  Is it sometimes homoerotic?  Hell yes! Are any of these reasons not to like the movie?  Oh hell no!  They only make it better.

You’ve got to give credit to Norma Moriceau, who costumed the movie on only a sliver of the film’s scant $4 million budget.  You can check out our gallery below but you really need to watch this whole thing, ’cause it will blow your mind!  (If you have Netflix, it is currently available to watch instantly… so there is no excuse to not be watching this movie RIGHT NOW!)
