Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Max, Master, and several of the Gatherers (the lost children from the desert) crash out of Bartertown when Pigkiller commandeers the semi used to power Bartertown and drives it away down a disused set of railroad tracks. Aunty Entity and her minions follow in hot pursuit. Several kilometers down the track, Jedediah Junior has blocked the rails, preventing further escape in the semi; Max then finds Junior's father (Jedediah the Pilot) and strongarms him into flying them out in his triplane. Max sacrifices himself by using a truck to smash Aunty's vehicles out of the way, allowing Jedediah's plane to take off. Aunty's men find Max alive, and Aunty lets him live. Meanwhile, Jedediah, his son, Pigkiller, Master, and the Gatherers fly to a ruined Sydney, where they establish a new settlement. They leave the city's lights on at night for Max, who continues to roam the wastelands alone.

Continuity mistake: When Master is lowered into the pigs den he is clean in the first shot. In the next shot as he is being lowered he is covered with mud and pig droppings. It is that he has already been down in the den between these two shots.

More trivia for Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Question: Since this is set years after the "Pocky-clipse" (as called by the kids), while Max and a lot of others have long hair, why do they mostly not show any facial hair? Given there are some knives and razors, but it would seem that shaving wouldn't be high on the list of survival.

Movie Nut

Chosen answer: Actually grooming would be somewhat important, if only for general comfort. Unruly facial hair can be quite uncomfortable and gets dirty easily. It is entirely plausible that men would regularly shave if they had a means to even in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.
