About the Author

Kyle Buchanan is a pop culture reporter and serves as The Projectionist, the awards season columnist for The New York Times. Prior to joining The Times in 2018, he was a senior editor at Vulture, New York Magazine's entertainment website, where he covered the movie industry. A native of Southern California, he lives in Los Angeles.


"New York Times journalist Kyle Buchanan details the bonkers construction of director George Miller's long-awaited and often seemingly-doomed fourth Mad Max movie via testimony from the filmmaker, Charlize Theron, Tom Hardy, and a host of others. The result is an epic and – when it comes to the Theron-Hardy on-set relationship – acrimonious tale no less jaw-dropping than the movie itself." — Entertainment Weekly

“[A] must-have oral history… it’s as if the entire cast and crew were in a big room, sharing their stories. The book is so good that, even though we know how the story turned out… we are somehow in a near-constant state of suspense… Filled with surprises and illuminating behind-the-scenes stories, this is the book Mad Max fans crave.” — Booklist (starred review)

“An insider’s guide to Fury Road that will inspire fans to rewatch and leave them eager for the next installment on Furiosa.” — Library Journal

“The pop culture reporter for The New York Times assembles scores of voices that rev up a narrative that will excite Mad Max fans specifically, and entertain film buffs generally, on how ideas are realized as epics…. Not unlike “Fury Road,” Buchanan’s “Blood, Sweat & Chrome” succeeds largely at the level you choose, summed up best by War Boy Ben Smith-Peterson: ‘Sometimes you don’t need to know the backstory of a character that doesn’t have any lines... but I don’t know. I’m a stunt guy. I let people set me on fire.’" — Associated Press

“Crazy, riveting.” — New York

“Deft and rollicking.”  — Air Mail News

"This in-depth oral history [is] as awe-inspiring as the film itself. This is as much a story of persistence as of filmmaking genius. Boasting well over 100 interviewees, the level of New York Times journalist Kyle Buchanan’s access is impressive....A book that doesn’t shy away from candid revelations; this entertaining tome is fitting testament to a film that played by its own rules." — SFX
