While Mandy doesn't offer anything new to the vengeance genre in terms of plot, it has an immense amount of visual imagery and symbolism that drives the film beyond your typical revenge porn into a fantastical thesis of psychosis.

Mandy is going to live as a cult classic. It won't be for everyone, but many will enjoy it for its chimerical cadence.
September 19, 2018
Mandy is, like that weird little goblin, a thing of demon energy and murderous concentration, eager to get on with the business of messing with you. It's one of the wildest, weirdest, most exciting movies of the year.
September 19, 2018
Even if you're not a heavy-metal fan, one can't help but love how Cosmatos turns an entire genre of music into a mode of filmmaking, and how Cage turns all of that into an authentically raw, vulnerable, blood-soaked performance.
September 19, 2018
This is an aggressive and violent movie yet it is also one that unabashedly wears its heart on its Black Sabbath t-shirt-wearing sleeve.

Only midnight movie completists need apply.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
September 18, 2018
Imagery saturated in red (everything in this world seems blood-soaked) abets the stroboscopic forward motion Costmatos creates as does Cage's performance.
September 18, 2018
Cage treats Red Miller not as a knocked-out, one-note vigilante, but as a full-blown Shakespearean figure filled with vengeful wrath.

When it does eventually kick into high gear, Cage delivers the loudness and craziness his fans have come to expect.

September 18, 2018
Weird in a way you either will accept instantly or it will drive you nuts. But as an experience? As an immersive, 2-hour drug-induced dream dreamt to a synthy soundtrack while laying on a bed of dewy grass? It's a masterpiece.
September 18, 2018
Beautifully-designed, genius and very self-aware.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

If you're a fan of Cage, then this is a bloody good one to see him go bonkers.

September 17, 2018
The movie's imagery is consistently unearthly; its pacing has a magisterial weight. Call it pulp Tarkovsky, maybe.
September 17, 2018
Ultimately, the lack of a coherent script hampers the movie in a number of ways, largely overshadowing some very interesting direction ... leave this one to stream.

September 17, 2018
Mandy has a little more beauty and hope under all that blood and gore.
September 15, 2018
Cage unhinged, yes. A throwback to the Manson-inspired, death cult grindhouse movies of the '70s, but not a very good one.

September 15, 2018
The pace remains languid and precise, but the violence is relentless and gruesome, a spectacle of blood, dirt, and the most ridiculous weapons imaginable. It's suitably nutty, and it's likely to give the film a level of notoriety for years to come.
September 14, 2018
Mandy has echoes of Hollywood stuff that's out now like The Predator and Peppermint, but its compelling strangeness gives it a power that those others can't hope to match. Plus, y'know, chainsaws.
September 14, 2018
Mandy is the real deal. It's a disturbing, expressionist horror picture.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
September 14, 2018
A unique and entertaining dive into the trippy and the brutal.
