Mad Max: Fury Road and Ex Machina - Two Sides of the Same Apocalyptic Coin

Isn’t it plausible that present attitudes towards women combined with rapid technological
advances as shown in EX MACHINA could be the “before” of some apocalyptic event that leads to
the “after” world of MAD MAX where the inhabitants have been brainwashed to believe they have
no responsibility for the apocalypse and healthy, fertile women are held as breeding slaves by a
tyrant who controls what scarce natural resources are left?

My stomach was in knots while I watched MAD MAX: FURY ROAD at the Alamo Drafthouse. I thought, “Is it the milkshake I’m drinking? Am I lactose-intolerant? Is the pure visceral power of this movie just too much for me?” After the film I realized it was simply my monthly feminine gift’s unexpected arrival.
