Phrases spring to mind like 'fever-dream' or 'hallucinatory trip' but they're not enough to convey the absolute single-minded, relentless perfection of the vision and craft that this film presents.

Cage blends heartbreaking pain with murderous thoroughness as his character crisscrosses the line into maniacal enthusiasm in this gleefully bloodthirsty and often moving revenge fantasy.

The mythical journey progresses from dreamlike somnambulism to abstraction avoiding articulating itself as a conventional story. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mandy is a triumph of both genre film-making and art, an unfiltered glimpse into the mind of an artist.

The metalhead romance transforms into a story of revenge where Cage emerges as a Cimmerian warrior, chewing and spitting out Joseph Campbell's hero's journey upon a pool of blood. [Full review in Spanish]

Cage's performance didn't develop or change, it just falls in the right place, where his crazy reactions & over the top acting become traits that help the film & distinguish him.

It's so good to see Nicolas Cage back in a film that rewards his bold approach to acting, because Mandy is bold and uncompromising, too.

Mandy is a surreal, heavy metal descent into madness.

The Mandy experience is like a memorably bad trip; it's somehow way more wild, alarming, and strangely hilarious than can be put into easy words.

Mandy is a journey of an innocent soul as it's ripped from the corporeal plane, torn asunder, and reconstructed as something that must feed on fire and blood.

The film just feels alien. It feels evil. It courses with a sort of seething darkness and descends into such brain-swelling madness that you can almost smell it.
October 31, 2018
A mind-bending phantasmagoria that sees a career-best Cage tackle a cult in neon-smothered hell.

Tonally closer to a stark, melancholy mood piece than heavy-metal horror show.

I warmed up to its first hour only to find myself a bit distanced by the second, due to its familiarity of revenge movie tropes and gory confrontation that we've seen many times before.

If you're on the fence with your opinion of [Cage] as a performer I think you'll find yourself swayed to the right side here - he is terrific, and I laud him for fighting to play Red instead of the more showy Jeremiah.

One of the most genius, visceral and truly transgressive genre films known in the last decade. [Full review in Spanish]

The audiovisual section is interesting and Nicolas Cage is acceptable, but this is not enough to compensate for the amount of excesses, whims and inconsistencies that the story presents. [Full review in Spanish]

Mandy is one hell of a wild ride at the cinema with its lush, fantastical visuals and its grizzly violence.

With hypnotic red and purple drenched cinematography, animated fantasy sequences, and the most intense Nicolas Cage performance in history, Mandy is incredible.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

Even though it's all too gut-wrenching and sunless, kudos to a fast-and-furious Cage, who returns from the dead with an insatiable appetite for vindictiveness.
