The Golden Age is being generated by the Sacred Feminine, as the "previously Mad Max: Fury Road postersuppressed goddess energy is emerging through humans and various institutions across the planet" (Writings From The One: 108 Insights From The Divine). One way this is expressed in movies is the rise of the feminine warrior. Emily Blunt in Live Die Repeat: The Edge Of Tomorrow a recent example. The great Charlize Theron takes it to another level in the ferociously awesome Mad Max: Fury Road. A kinetic, hallucinatory, boldly feminist chase flick that, with its vibrant color palette, harrowing stunt work and show-don't-tell style of yarn-spinning, leaves every Marvel movie and every Fast & Furious in its irradiated dust. - NPR A gleefully violent and improbably feminist phantasmagoria that turns epic road rage and long stretches of vehicular omnicide into an eye-boggling joy ride. - Wall Street Journal. Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron make a dynamite team, but Theron is the film's bruised heart and soul. So get prepped for a new action classic. You won't know what hit you. - Rolling Stone This spectacularly great reboot is surprisingly owned not by Hardy, who is fine, but by Charlize Theron. - N.Y. Post The shock, really, is how tender Mad Max: Fury Road ultimately becomes. The film just wraps that tenderness in one of the most epic action extravaganzas of recent years. It's enough to renew your faith in movies. - Boston Globe

We'll talk about that, other new releases, including Slow West "an inventive treat for fans of the Western" and more, on the Filmosophers, with Chris Busch & Bruce Miller "where we give our filmosophy of the movies and have filmosophical discussions." Fridays 12:30 PM again Sunday mornings 11:30. "Wanna get through this? Let's go." - Charlize Theron, Mad Max: Fury Road
