    Watching Mandy is a trip

    The beginning of the movie starts off as a love story. Then takes a dark turn and becomes a hardcore, revenge fick spliced with psychedelic visuals. Also, this is a beautiful, glossy steelbook and it comes with funny temporary tattoos.

    Weird and cool

    Nicolas Cage’s best film of recent memory is this year’s MANDY. An acid drenched bizarre horror fantasy, this is a must see film for those looking for something different. Director and cowriter Panos Cosmatos delivers a deliciously deep cut of genre while retaining an arthouse sensibility. Trippy visuals, demons, animated sequences, and glorious mayhem assault the screen while you try to figure out if somebody laced your drink with LSD. In 1983, a stand in for the fantasy genre’s ahistorical a-long-time-ago, logger Red (a determined and tough Cage) is living an idyllic existence with his heavy metal loving artist wife Mandy (an ethereal Andrea Riseborough). One day, a demonic cult leader named Jeremiah (creepy Linus Roache) takes an interest in Mandy and orders his minions to conjure some demons and kidnap her. Despite being dosed with a powerful hallucinogen, Mandy rejects Jeremiah, and Red will soon have to embark on a quest into the darkness for revenge. It’s not the plot that makes this film so compelling, although it’s well executed and fun. No, it’s Cosmatos and cinematographer Benjamin Loeb’s complete adherence to slathering the screen in weird lighting and psychedelic imagery. Reminiscent of Dario Argento’s famous SUSPIRIA, this is not a conventional looking film in the slightest. Besides the visuals, Cosmatos uses the common fantasy framework for his narrative but melds it onto a more modern time, creating a pleasingly unique fairytale mood. Keep an eye out for the appearance of a goblin. Then there’s Johann Johannsson’s droning metal inspired score. Beautiful and dark, the late Johannsson’s music is a perfect match for this ultra moody flick. Effects and action sequences are thrilling, allowing for gore and well executed stunts. The film makes time for both chainsaws and majestic battle-axe battles, too as the costume and prop departments shine. Throw in fan favorite character actors Bill Duke and Richard Brake in grin inducing cameos and some cool metal fantasy inspired animated sequences and it’s one heck of a ride. MANDY is a blast, however it is decidedly outside the mainstream. Much effort was placed on making this film look and feel different from the norm, even though the plot is pretty straightforward. Hallucinogenic, violent, and beautiful, it’s an acid trip down into the depths of arthouse horror and fantasy. Unapologetically unconventional while still being entertaining is rarely pulled off so well. Even though it’s closest in tone to Ridley Scott’s LEGEND, it is it’s inversion and embracing of the genre that makes it so memorable. Recommended for metalheads, fantasy enthusiasts, fans of subversive cinema, and those who’ve sampled psychedelic wares.

    I wanted to watch it so bad and it wasn't streaming on any service yet so I bought it. It was a wild movie. Trippy art, great colors. It's like a pychedelic 80's feeling revenge horror movie.

    Wow. Weird flick. Violent flick. Awesome flick! Wait until you see the last third of the movie. It's priceless. Not quite my favorite Cage flick, but it's up there.

    How do you describe Mandy? That one word title simply isn't enough. Let's begin with a disclaimer before giving you a rundown of what Mandy is... I'm an artist myself, a movie-lover with over 1100 films in my collection. In both instances, I'm also a "basic" guy. My all-time favorite artists, outside HR Giger, are more likely to be found in the pages of comic books than hanging on museum walls. You'll find multiple copies of films like Alien, Aliens, or Predator than a single Ingmar Bergman flick. Keep this in mind when reading what is written next. Mandy is beautiful. It's gorgeous. It's breathtaking. It's a revenge film that took all those mentioned prior and has made art house palatable for the masses. If you're like me and use the majority of your film-time as release, as indulgence, you're going to enjoy this intrusion into your typical fare of art, metaphor, and reflection. None of it replaces any of the story, it enhances it in ways you never thought was necessary, but leaves you wanting more films exactly like it. At its heart, Mandy is horror, action-revenge, and drama, all packaged in one of Nic Cage's best performances. He runs the gamut to extremes in ways only he can do, even pulling some of the finest psychosis since Vampire's Kiss (giving us the meme-worthy, "YOU RIPPED MY SHIRT!" in the process). Panos Cosmatos, son of Tombstone director George Cosmatos, has truly made a modern day arthouse masterpiece that speaks to the masses that fall on either side of the cinema line. Mandy shouldn't be missed, no matter which group you throw your hat in with.

    So, this is a trip. Breaking it down, it's your basic "Couple in love, living happy in the woods, until some cult leader wants the girl, she rejects him, horrible stuff happens and the antagonist gets his revenge" story line. Now....do that, but with Nick Cage, and turn the weird factor up to 25. Was it good? Yes. Was it out there? Yeah, Jupiter is closer.

    Top Notch Film and Score

    Heard about this movie as one of Johann Johannsson’s last project as a movie score composer. Obviously, I had to watch the movie. I didn’t know what to expect with a Nicholas Cage movie. As always, I’m blown away by him and the director who shot this film. To have it in steelbook is an added bonus. I highly recommend it.

    Let’s face it, this movie is not for everyone. This is a mad tour de force. Cage is in top form here, and the direction is superb. A powerful and violent revenge film. The steelbook is great, and a must collectible. I wish there were more extras though. For those on the fence, you should at least rent. I love it!

    An incredible B level horror movie that oozes style. Story's def abstract, takes a couple watches likely to get it beyond the basic premise, but one def worth having.

    This film is not for everyone. There is lots of violence, blood, and an unconventional storyline. That being said, I appreciated it for what it was and enjoyed much of the action and “b movie” style of storytelling.
