Quote from: IMDb Trivia
The film editor, Margaret Sixel, is director George Miller's wife. When she asked her husband why he thought she should do it as she had never edited an action film before, Miller replied, "Because if a guy did it, it would look like every other action movie."

I looked at her filmography and she had no experience in anything like this previously. She had edited Happy Feet and Babe 2 and some shorts and documentaries. It seems like it was a huge gamble and I give props to Miller for taking chances. Evidently fresh perspectives can create fresh new material.

Miller's choice with editor was inspired, I am very pleased with his choice.

I need to see this movie a second time while it's still in theaters.

Something I really liked was the language. It was like that part of Cloud Atlas, except it didn't sound stupid. True-true.

I don't believe there was a single one-liner in the film... I liked how the film stuck to that.

I'm doing some writing on this one examining feminine as masculine, hyper masculinity and the semiotics throughout the film.
