Mandy (Sept 2018, D: Panos Cosmatos) S: Nic Cage, Riseborough

Barry Manilow jokes aside, as someone who is a huge fan of Cosmatos' debut feature Beyond the Black Rainbow, this might be my most anticipated movie of the year. It sounds wild. Hopefully I can catch this on the bigscreen.


Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) and Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough) lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand (Linus Roache), Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.

RLJE Films will be releasing MANDY in Theaters, on VOD and Digital HD on September 14th.


MANDY is Nicolas Cage at His Best and Bloodiest (Sundance Review)

"Sweet buttery Moses. Twelve hours after watching the midnight world premiere of Mandy at the Sundance Film Festival, I am still reeling from the sensory onslaught of Panos Cosmatos’ wild new film. My head is pounding and my heart is racing and I feel hungover, but I haven’t had a drop to drink and I’ve already acclimated to the altitude. No, this is the aftermath of one of the most audacious and exhilarating cinematic experiences I’ve had in ages. Mandy is by no means a perfect film and is likely going to turn off a fair number of viewers who aren’t on board for its concentrated, unadulterated weirdness. But for those who are willing to take the ride, you’re in for a bizarre, bloody treat featuring a particularly extra Nic Cage, giving his best performance in years. It’s an instant cult classic, and I mean that both literally and figuratively."

Yeah I'm super stoked for this. Been waiting a long time for his BTBR follow up. His Dad was a good director too.

I'm looking forward to what Cage brings to the role. It's the kind of role he was born to play. I've said it before but one out of every five or six movies Cage still delivers a gem performance in a really good movie. I think its about that time again.

A friend of mine saw this a few months ago and said not to watch any trailers but to see it ASAP because it's insane and awesome.

Re: Mandy (Sept 2018, D: Panos Cosmatos) S: Nic Cage, Riseborough

It's easy to imagine both of Cosmatos' films taking place in the same universe -- and especially the same era -- thanks to Cosmatos' wholly unique visual sensibilities and languid pacing. The eight-year wait between his pictures had me seriously wondering if he was a one-trick pony or otherwise disinterested in pursuing filmmaking any further. Mandy appears to prove otherwise, and I'm hugely grateful that he didn't squander the intervening years cranking out music videos and shit like that.

Nic Cage has always been a Must See Actor for me.
He has the ability to make a movie forgettable memorable.

He was Superman in Teen Titan's Go! To the Movies... which also got a 90%

Mom and Dad is somehow at 75% as well, didn't care for that one.

Saw an advance screening of this last night. It did not disappoint. Catch it in a theater if you can.

Hardly a "Nic Cage movie."

Re: Mandy (Sept 2018, D: Panos Cosmatos) S: Nic Cage, Riseborough

Saw this last night, and it was surprisingly followed by a Q&A from the Egyptian screening the night before.

Visually, this is amazing. Cage goes on a coke-and-vodka fueled rampage reminiscent of Bronson's '80s run, only with the visual palette of Dali on arcane acid.

Narrative-wise, the film is thin and the first act is a bit glacial but once the plot revs up Cage goes full-bore to the satisfaction of gorehounds and revenge-seekers alike.

Also, they did a little giveaway in the theater (which is crazy because my local theater is big & beautiful but sparsely attended on weekdays) and I won a pin. Neat.

I may have to check this out. I don't get to the theater much these days and didn't think it'd be a Nic Cage movie that draws me back in.
