Gorgeous cinematography and score don't make Mandy half as cool as it thinks it is.

As good as Cosmatos is at atmosphere and nightmarish scenarios, he would benefit from working with someone who keeps his self-indulgent tendencies in check.

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.

Had Nicolas Cage not been in Mandy, this would've been cast aside without a second, third or thousandth thought.

The concept is incredible and hilarious at the end - but is a big mess.

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.

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]

Cosmatos' style gets the better of him with this one, to the point where it melds together like flowing molasses.

Only midnight movie completists need apply.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 14, 2018
Intermittently amusing, but not in a good way.

November 30, 2018
Cosmatos never delivers the over-the-top crazy Cage that I was hoping for, or at least not in the satisfying, crescendo building manner I craved.
September 13, 2018
Displays some decent visual gimmickry but shoots for mystical and epic but ultimately feels laboured and pointless.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 14, 2018 art-house exercise in often infuriating self-indulgence.

October 18, 2018
Mandy tries and sometimes succeeds to be the kind of movie you should only see after midnight, but a slow pace is fatal to grindhouse. The changes of emphasis and time that are so fearfully disorienting in Lynch are more like dead air here.
October 15, 2018
One for Cage completists only and even they may struggle.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: C-

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

In a world as scary as this one is right now, Mandy makes an intuitive sort of sense.
