I really enjoyed The Road. Which is your favorite post-apocalyptic film?

It has to be the Mad Max trilogy - hopefully soon to be a quadrilogy when Fury Road is finally unleashed! Just love the stunt work and FX & the whole hell for leather design. Technically speaking only Mad Max 3 is after the actual nuclear war, 1 & 2 just leading up to that event as society breaks down and World War 3 escalates. Mad Max 2 may well be my fav & most watched movie of all time. The likes of Terminator Salvation just don't come close!
Wass really impressed with Escape From New York as well as the 28 Days series. Have you seen Neil Marshall's Doomsday??
You might also like the BBC's Threads which was made in the 80s & depicted the after effects of a nuclear strike on Britain in particular Sheffield.
I enjoyed the 1980's VHS boom of Italian exploitation cinema with all the likes of Bronx Warriors, New Barbarians, 2019 & The Atlantis Interceptors (which was my fav Mad Max rip off)

The Book Of Eli [DVD] [2009] is worth a watch, if only for the environment.

The most compelling post-apocalyptic depiction ever has to be the TV series 'Survivors' (and I obviously mean the original 70's Survivors, not the woeful, politically correct, lightweight remake). For sheer fun though, Mad Max is hard to beat.

28 days later was a good film and 28 weeks later was excellent, but for me The Road stands alone, unrivalled in the genre. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed the likes of Mad Max, book of Eli etc, but I enjoyed them for what they are: indulgent action-movies with little realism. This is not a bad thing I enjoy some crazy stunts, and fantasy-action in my movies, I don't want to sit down to a serious piece of profound cinema every time I watch a film. But when I do I am all too often disappointed by the promise of a great film which turns out to be a poor effort. The Road was rare in that it did not disappoint.

A story that has a lot to say to (and about) society and humanity.
The microcosmic relationship between two people (father and son) that reverberates through the wider relationship structures of family, community, society, species. What do we mean to each other?
