“Mad Max and Hang ‘Em High,” by Benjamin Carter


There’s an interesting article over at Tales of Disinterest, comparing and contrasting the two films.

“I will be comparing these two texts as Westerns, more specifically as Revenge Westerns; both films are about a man seeking revenge/justice against a group of people who cause grief or harm when they sought revenge/justice against him. The differences being that Jed Cooper finds himself forced back into law enforcement in order to seek his justice, while Max Rockatansky goes rogue leaving law enforcement and ends up viewing himself as no better than the criminals he kills.”

You can find it here.
