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.

Cosmatos' vision is appropriately cosmic and apocalyptic, although its distended contemplations in the first hour can be somewhat trying, even suffocating.
September 13, 2018
Displays some decent visual gimmickry but shoots for mystical and epic but ultimately feels laboured and pointless.

...an art-house exercise in often infuriating self-indulgence.

Too bad that heart gets sacrificed to Cosmatos' over-the-top madness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 14, 2018
A revenge tale so wildly extravagant that it seems positively deranged...For Midnight Movie types, 'Mandy' will be an answer to their prayers; for everybody else, Cosmatos' flamboyant fever-dream will be an excruciating, stomach-churning nightmare.

Cage unhinged, yes. A throwback to the Manson-inspired, death cult grindhouse movies of the '70s, but not a very good one.

Mandy throws enough visionary strangeness on the screen to dwarf even Nicolas Cage in full freakout mode.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5
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.

Cage is known for his erratic, unhinged roles. So if you love seeing him at his nuttiest, get ready for his craziest role yet.

After years in the wilderness, Nicolas Cage has his swagger back.
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 10, 2018
Mandy is a midnight movie masterpiece that delivers on everything you want and more. A genre-defining work of insane brilliance.
September 14, 2018
Every shot is composed with a directorial conviction heavy with hermetic knowledge and occult power.
September 12, 2018
At its core, despite being unreservedly far out, Mandy is a pretty conventional revenge story. But Cosmatos has taken those conventions back to their primordial state, fashioning something that goes deeper than the archetypal. It's downright mythical.
May 16, 2018
It's not nuanced, but it needn't be: watch Mandy with an enthusiastic audience and it's impossible not to be swept away in the carnage.
January 22, 2018
Mandy is a totally uncompromising vision from a singular filmmaker - a pulsing, twisted descent into heavy metal vengeance that must be seen to be believed.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
September 18, 2018
Beautifully-designed, genius and very self-aware.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 24, 2018
It's unconventional and provocative, but with such a powerfully invigorating narration and clear passion between the lines, Mandy feels like an explosive liberation.
September 13, 2018
Mandy isn't for everyone. But for those it is for? It's a hell of a thing.
