Road Warrior, of course, has some other features that separate it from a simple-minded postatomic narrative (of the type of A Boy and His Dog or Glenn and Rhonda): in particular, its temporal perspective converts its near-future narrative into a far-future one, endowing the present with legendary dimensions of a well-nigh mythical or religious kind (something then completed and finished off, with all the i's dotted and t's crossed, in the rather more christological Terminator).
