Review: Mandy

September 11, 2018 1 min read

With a trailer that promised surreal, neon-lit landscapes as a backdrop to an unhinged spree of violent revenge, I marked Mandy as the one movie I needed to experience no matter what this year. I had seen Beyond the Black Rainbow almost a decade ago, so I understood director Panos Cosmatos' penchant for beautiful, cosmic framing and haunting performances. I knew Mandy would be his uncompromising vision. I knew it would at least strike out as a cult classic since Nicolas Cage was going to have a chainsaw fight at some point. I came into this movie with the highest of expectations, expectations I knew full well it could never live up to.

And it didn't. It exceeded every single one of them.
