The Most Amazing Movie Ever Made

I actually didn't love the Mad Max: Fury Road. It wasn't quite... I don't know, enjoyable? To me, anyway. But it was two solid hours of "holy crap I can't believe they actually made this movie." The narrative structure is inverted. Everything flows from the action, and there's almost no dialogue, but still the backstory is unveiled (slowly) and a world is created. I actually can't even comprehend what went into choreographing, filming, and editing what is mostly a 2 hour car chase, mostly without CGI. Someone dubbed it Steampunk Mario Kart. About right.
