For this week's special Monday edition of Hit me with your best shot, Nathaniel clearly lost his damn mind and had us screencap "Mad Max: Fury Road". It felt so wrong to slow down this propulsive action film to analyze it in still form, how dare he! So much of the film is about constant motion.

But on a serious note, it was a pleasure to watch the film again his week. Ever since my initial viewing, I've had fond memories of its imagery. While most of the talking points surrounding the film were about its feminist themes, I derived my thrills from the sheer energy of the whole thing. For my best shot then, I went with something that I felt captured this kineticism.

In the image below, we're at the height of the chase and I love how George Miller gives us this wide shot to give us a palpable sense of the scale of the action. Indeed, all the music (check out the guitarist in the foreground) and mayhem of the film can be inferred from this image. It's so awesome that even our protagonist - himself swinging on a pole - takes a quick glance back to take it all in.
