It is hard to describe the director of Beyond The Black Rainbow, Panos Cosmatos. Mandy is the second movie of him. Maybe you realize of his last name, Cosmatos. Well known director George P. Cosmatos was his father. Before he passed away, he made some different works. For instance, Stallone's Rambo Part 2, Cobra, spectecular western, Tombstone, unforgettable heist movie, Cassandra Crossing. He was also directed two different horror movies, Of Unknown Origin, 1983 and Leviathan, 1989. And Panos Cosmatos had a chance to work with his father as a video assist operator on father's best work, Tombstone .
Critizing Mandy is a real deal. That's because, this film can not be put in a drawer. It's Like an essence! Ok, anyway I guess I should push myself harder on this point. Mandy is a fairly simple revenge story with horror elements. But you will easily understand after my next words. "Mandy" is much more than that. Especially Cospatos' visual burns off a real fireworks display. From the beginning of a movie, gloomy and nihilistic atmosphere get you caught. Some sinister images are alienated, provided with color filters and visual effects. As a result, they seem remote from reality. And that even before the actual action begins. From there, there is only one direction left: downhill.
Official Movie Synopsis:
Taking place in 1983, Red is a lumberjack who lives in a secluded cabin in the woods. His artist girlfriend Mandy spends her days reading fantasy paperbacks. Then one day, she catches the eye of a crazed cult leader, who conjures a group of motorcycle-riding demons to kidnap her. Red, armed with a crossbow and custom Axe, stops at nothing to get her back, leaving a bloody, brutal pile of bodies in his wake.
"Mandy" is a wild ride that you have to get involved in. The film splits and does not make it easy for audiences. While some already claim cult status, others shake their heads in dismay. The brutality is not likely to suit everyone. Whether with a huge halberd or gigantic chainsaw, Cage suits well from the beginnig till the end of the movie. Finally that's good news for the fans of Nicolas Cage.
Cage without any doubt plays unusual extravagant performance seamlessly in these circles. Still, we rarely saw from him like that kind of performance for a longtime. Because we have been watching Mr. Cage the last decade of his garbage movies. Also on this film actor Linus Roache, as a section leader Jeremiah, he makes a great appearance at this point.
Before the finishing line I have to say something about dark movie sounds. Soundtracks really successful and suits of this mad picture's soul. It is the last work of the Icelandic excellent composer Jóhann Jóhannsson, who unfortuanely die too early, last year, 2018.
Unfortunately, Cosmatos eventually loses in his audiovisual intoxication, and the movie runs out of steam. Proper tension may not always arise. A little more speed and fifteen minutes less time, and "Mandy" would have the highest rating. But if you didn't watch yet, you must to watch without any doubt. Even the name of Nicolas Cage.
