Mandy {2018}
« on: June 27, 2018, 04:39:40 PM »
Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.








Director: Panos Cosmatos


Mandy is set in the primal wilderness of 1983 where Red Miller, a broken and haunted man hunts an unhinged religious sect who slaughtered the love of his life.

You're a bunny disguised as a human and I don't appreciate the fact you're pretending to be a tiger.

Mandy - 5/5

Say hello to your new favorite Cult movie.

A seductive cosmic fever dream that descends into an acid-drenched stoner nightmare. Nicholas Cage fights "crazy evil" amongst a color palette that leaves Suspiria for dead, and a score by the late, great Johann Johannsson which is equal parts beautiful and doom-laden. Believe the hype and get prepared for a film like no other.

I am so confused by the positive mainstream reaction to this film. I can understand some appreciating this movie on a technical level. Between the sets, soundtrack, color palette, etc... there is a lot to admire about Mandy. I could even understand Mandy joining the ranks of films like The Room and Troll 2 as a "so bad it's good" cult favorite. Hell, even genre fans enjoying the Heavy Metal motifs and overall weirdness I can comprehend. But, (as of now) a 7.5 on Imdb? 83% Metacrtic score? 95% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes? This I do not understand. Judging Mandy as a whole it is fundamentally flawed, underwhelming and worst of all boring.

At this point I'm not sure if Mandy is some sort of joke geared toward internet meme culture that went completely over my head. In all seriousness, what am I missing here?  :)

I thought it was fantastic!

I watched it twice this morning because I didn't want to leave it. : ) The colors, the filming, the characters and the storyline that Panos Cosmatos let us be apart of; thank you sir. Cage was amazing of course. No doubts. You can watch this multiple times and come out with amazing and different feelings . I will own this.

I have known you and have read your opinion on films for many years now. Someone like yourself enjoying this movie I completely understand. I don't mean that in a disparaging way and I respect your opinion. I get it, but what is the mainstream appeal of this movie? Why the overwhelming praise?  What am I missing? :)

Nic looks AMAZING in this, very excited to have my very own experience! Looking at the trailer and everything commented on in here sounds like a lot of effort and creativity went into this.
