Features of Blood Sweat & Chrome PDF
A full-speed-ahead oral history of the nearly two-decade making of the cultural phenomenon Mad Max: Fury Road—with more than 130 new interviews with key members of the cast and crew, including Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and director George Miller, from the pop culture reporter for The New York Times, Kyle Buchanan.Blood Sweat & Chrome PDF
It won six Oscars and has been hailed as the greatest action film ever, but it is a miracle Mad Max: Fury Road ever made it to the screen… or that anybody survived the production. The story of this modern classic spanned nearly two decades of wild obstacles as visionary director George Miller tried to mount one of the most difficult shoots in Hollywood history.
Production stalled several times, stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron clashed repeatedly in the brutal Namib Desert, and Miller’s crew engineered death-defying action scenes that were among the most dangerous ever committed to film. Even accomplished Hollywood figures are flummoxed by the accomplishment: As the director Steven Soderbergh has said, “I don’t understand how they’re not still shooting that film, and I don’t understand how hundreds of people aren’t dead.”
Kyle Buchanan takes readers through every step of that moviemaking experience in vivid detail, from Fury Road’s unexpected origins through its outlandish casting process to the big-studio battles that nearly mutilated a masterpiece. But he takes the deepest dive in reporting the astonishing facts behind a shoot so unconventional that the film’s fantasy world began to bleed into the real lives of its cast and crew. As they fought and endured in a wasteland of their own, the only way forward was to have faith in their director’s mad vision. But how could Miller persevere when almost everything seemed to be stacked against him?
With hundreds of exclusive interviews and details about the making of Fury Road, readers will be left with one undeniable conclusion: There has never been a movie so drenched in sweat, so forged by fire, and so epic in scope.

I knew that it had taken George Miller a very long time to get Mad Max: Fury Road made, and I knew that the movie had been storyboarded rather than scripted. I hadn’t realized how many years before shooting ever began that the story was fully formed, nor did I realize how true Miller stayed to the images in the storyboards. Even while he was making Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet and Happy Feet Two, he and a team were working on Fury Road.
I was struck over and over that it took the singlemindedness of so many people to get this movie made. Nothing about it was easy. It was in some form of preproduction for over a decade, the shoot was long, dangerous, and grueling. Even while filming was underway, there was no guarantee the funding wouldn’t be pulled. The studio did pull the plug, leaving the film without a beginning or end. Though I have watched the final product mane times, it was stressful reading about the pressure and uncertainty. The fights with the studio lasted until a few months before the film opened.
Sometimes reading the accounts of so many people made it hard to follow the events and the short bursts of text from so many people challenged my ability to keep who did what straight. Where the oral history format really worked was in talking about the relationships between people. The War Boys built a cult. The Wives built a Sisterhood, and Theron and Hardy were sort of on the periphery of those groups without a lot of support.
There are a lot of reasons Mad Max: Fury Road is important to me. Purely as a movie, it is a visceral theater experience that I shared several times with friends. Charlize Theron’s Furiosa was the character I’d been waiting for since Sigorney Weaver’s Ellen Ripley in Aliens (1986).
If you are looking for deep philosophical thoughts about Mad Max, this isn’t that book. I’d actually like to read that book someday, or listen to the podcast. I watched Fury Road right before I started reading Blood, Sweat & Chrome and again while I was writing the review. That’s the most movie watching I’ve done since February 2020. It isn’t a perfect movie, but it is amazing. I don’t know that any other director would have gotten this movie made, and it took the committed insanity of hundreds of people to get it done.
I received this as an advance reader copy from NetGalley. My opinions are my own.
