This week, the Black Geeks review "The Rover" directed by Aussie auteur David Michod.  "The Rover" is the story of one unnamed man's desperate attempt to track his stolen car through the Australian outback in a dystopian near future.  Along the way, the man, played by a terrifying Guy Pearce, meets a disparate assemblage of unsettling characters all just as desperate as him.  His relationship with Rey, an almost unrecognizable Robert Pattinson, begins as a hostile alliance and develops into something much more.  The film culminates in a surprising and touching end. This is not George Miller territory though the comparisons seem unavoidable. Tune in to find out if you need to see this movie in the theatres RIGHT NOW, or if you can just pop in your copy of Mad Max and call it a night.
