Episode 9: Phantasmagoria
Jun 25, 2021
A violent, beautiful, deranged, and haunting work of art.
Mar 1, 2021
A deeply weird movie, tailored for a very specific grindhouse type of audience, and brought to life by Cage's cock-a-doodle performance.

Mandy's death propels the movie descending rapidly into total mayhem and provides perhaps Nic Cage's Cagest performance in years. That long take rage scene in his underwear in the bathroom is a sight to behold.

Despite its obvious low-budget construction, it's stylish and alarmingly original, while Cage doesn't hold back the rage in his performance.

No matter what side of the cinematic spectrum you sit on, Mandy needs to be seen to be believed.

As a bereaved lover out for blood, Cage is unstintingly, resolutely fantastic in the hack 'n' slash 1980s genre homage.

It may not be the phantasmagorical face-melting extravaganza it ought to be, but it'll singe more than a few eyebrows.

Mandy is a love letter to a time where horror movies had a combination of otherworldly visuals and contemporary special effects to show the sheer brutality of either revenge or evil.

Bug-nuts crazy, drug-addled, apocalyptic-doomsday-cult-fueled, chainsaw-fighting, demon-biker-having madness and mania.

A strange, visceral, visually stunning film with a hypnotic aesthetic that builds psychedelic atmospheres and characters that only love cruelty and gloom. [Full review in Spanish]

There's just so much going on here in this contorted, awful version of the world, that it has to be seen to be believed, let alone appreciated. See this in a theater if you possibly can; the collective mind melt experience will be too good to pass up.

Mandy is a mostly fun movie but while the character and relationship building is good, it feels like it takes a bit too much time and leaves too little time to the mayhem.

Bizarre revenge horror movie has graphic violence, gore.

I didn't much care for the film, but I can see how it might appeal to gorehounds and fans of genre cinema.

... there is a sense of raw filmmaking and imagery herein coupled with throwbacks to 1980s post-apocalypse sci-fi and fantasy, but the underfunded and under-edited final cut drags like a battleship anchor holding back a rowboat.

The film at times does feel like death metal band's music video but throughout, the story seems to be as if it was lifted directly from the pages of a dark fantasy novel, similar to the one Mandy reads in the film.

Cage is exceptional and more memorable than past performances, but this is only due to the world that Cosmatos has crafted for him to coexist within.

Mandy is deadly serious about loss and it conjures the kind of blackly ridiculous, balls-out campy imagery that puts other action/arthouse flicks to shame. Its influences are obvious, but it's a one of a kind.

Mandy is lovingly assembled from a wide array of prurient obsessions ... woven into a film both clearly personal and breathtakingly gorgeous.
