Critic Consensus: Mandy's gonzo violence is fueled by a gripping performance by Nicolas Cage -- and anchored with palpable emotion conveyed between his volcanic outbursts.

Critic Reviews for Mandy

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (7)

Cosmatos' ability to put us 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.

[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.

Mandy is heartbreaking: There's one lengthy close-up right around the middle when we see the light literally go out from Cage's eyes.

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.

For years, [Nicholas Cage] has swung wildly in search of gonzo material; at long last, he's found a movie willing to match his crazed intentions.

Were scientists to engineer an uncut, 100-proof cult sensation, it would probably look, sound, and kick like this.
