Mad Max is a 1979 Australian dystopian action movie directed by George Miller, produced by Byron Kennedy, and starring Mel Gibson. The story follows the exploits of Max Rockatansky, a police officer in a dystopian future where resources are scarce and society has collapsed.
Mad Max's title is in Reporter font, which Carlos Winkow created in 1938. The typeface's strokes have the appearance of being written with a dry brush, and the alignment is a little off, giving it a somewhat spontaneous appearance.
The typeface was voted 95th on FontShop's list of the 100 Best Typefaces of All Time. You can view more details about it here.
