It's bloody, it's nasty, and it burns.

Naughty but niche.
October 12, 2018
Needless to say, Cage is utterly in his element.
October 10, 2018
There really are some extraordinary scenes.
October 10, 2018
Dreamy, destructive, unfailingly compelling.

Cosmatos' metal-to-the-max revenge thriller is more than just the sum of its deranged set pieces, choice as they are: Its slow-drip blend of hardcore pulp and demonic fantasy has a patience and all-consuming conviction that simply cannot be faked.

Either you are one of the devoted or you're not. You won't know what camp you're in until you see it.

The movie's imagery is consistently unearthly; its pacing has a magisterial weight. Call it pulp Tarkovsky, maybe.

Cosmatos needs you to be charitable toward his performances. Or, barring that, he needs you to be stoned. Many will oblige.
September 14, 2018
Every shot is composed with a directorial conviction heavy with hermetic knowledge and occult power.

There's a masterful version of this movie that runs notably shorter, but that doesn't mean there's not an unforgettable one the way it is right now.

For those who think nothing of staying up past midnight to devour the strange and fantastic, it hits the sweetest of spots.
September 13, 2018
If revenge films are a dime a dozen, then Mandy cost a bunch of dimes. The plot is straightforward but visually, aurally, symbolically, it's a heavy motion picture that may be too much for some audiences to handle.
September 13, 2018
Displays some decent visual gimmickry but shoots for mystical and epic but ultimately feels laboured and pointless.
September 13, 2018
This film is a fusion of kitsch and pulp, underscored with a genuine spiritual yearning.
September 12, 2018
It's the kind of extreme moviegoing experience made for midnight-movie cult worship.
September 10, 2018
The film is about nothing-aside, of course, from the sight of a blood-spattered Nicolas Cage gritting his teeth as he rams the sharpened knob of his ax down someone's throat.
September 10, 2018
Mandy may feel like a cult movie that assumes it already has a prefab cult...as a star vehicle, however, this film is fully scraping at the door.
September 10, 2018
Cage is known for his erratic, unhinged roles. So if you love seeing him at his nuttiest, get ready for his craziest role yet.

Mandy might not be everyone's idea of a satisfying nightcap, but this surrealistic revenge flick will likely earn a loyal following of its own.
