Mandy

Nicolas Cage hunts down a religious sect in this revenge thriller from the director of Beyond the Black Rainbow. Co-starring Andrea Riseborough (The Death of Stalin), the film's concept art teases an epic one-on-one chainsaw battle.

"Somewhere in the primal wilderness near the Shadow Mountains in the year 1983, Red Miller (Cage) has fallen deeply for the beguiling Mandy Bloom (Riseborough). But the life he has made for himself comes suddenly and horrifyingly crashing down when a vile band of ravaging idolaters and supernatural creatures penetrate his idyllic paradise with vicious fury. A broken man, Red now lives for one thing only — to hunt down these maniacal villains and exact swift vengeance." (Sundance Film Festival)

[Nicholas Cage] works precisely because there is a great actor underneath it all and because he does tap into something so ferocious that other people wouldn't dare to touch.

Anyone with a taste for Nicolas Cage in full gonzo mode should get some fun out of its fever-dream progress.

Cosmatos needs you to be charitable toward his performances. Or, barring that, he needs you to be stoned. Many will oblige.

Cage is just next-level here. Mandy is a sci-fi infused, technically stunning and deliriously inventive film that I adored from beginning to end.

Mandy may feel like a cult movie that assumes it already has a prefab cult...as a star vehicle, however, this film is fully scraping at the door.

As if its sole goal was to take the heavyweight title of Nicolas Cage's Craziest Movie Ever, "Mandy" exhibits what Shakespeare called "vaulting ambition" in producing the nuttiest ways for Cage to get into one phantasmagorical showdown after the next.

Mandy might not be everyone's idea of a satisfying nightcap, but this surrealistic revenge flick will likely earn a loyal following of its own.

Cosmatos' ability to putus in Red's head - overwhelmed at first with pain and fury, then saturated by the strange drugs he for some reason feels compelled to try - make this much more than the usual exercise in vicarious bloodshed.

Nicolas Cage at his best fighting a cult? I think yes.

Very easy to embrace the chaotic silliness that is Nic Cage in this movie. Very pretty visuals and score elevate this movie to one of the more aesthetic movies released this year.

Mandy is not, as expected, glorious eighties-inspired violent action fun. It is an entirely predictable paint-by-numbers, very trendy 2018 film seemingly made solely for Nic Cage fanboys who have finished Stranger Things and need some more cinematography to talk about. Angela Riseborough is criminlly underused and serves as nothing more than a plot point in...

The second of two acid-trips I enjoyed seeing splashed all over the big screen during the 2018 New Zealand International Film Festival, MANDY is a lot like “Acid Western” LET THE CORPSES TAN in its vibrant use of colour and hallucinogenic story sense. If you love the likes of Alejandro Jodorowsky’s EL TOPO or Dario Argento’s SUSPIRIA, the stylistic...

I'm a lumberjack and I'm Okay. Until the night some drug-crazed biker, hippy, Jesus-freaks showed up at my cabin in the woods and killed my woman. Nicolas Cage transforms from a mild-mannered lumberjack living blissfully with Mandy, a new age artist/shopkeeper, into raging homicidal maniac on a revenge rampage in a self-indulgent visual orgy of 1970's and...
