Watch the POV shots from the Mad Max films

George Miller, director of Mad Max, Max Max 2: The Road Warrior, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, and Mad Max: Fury Road, is a master of the POV shot.

According to this montage's editor, Rishi Kaneria, "One of the reasons George Miller's action scenes work so well and make so much sense is because they are grounded in the character’s point of view. By doing this he literally puts you into the action using nonverbal visual, almost operatic, storytelling—something Hitchcock would call “pure cinema."
