MANDY
2018, RLJE Films, 121 min, USA, Dir: Panos Cosmatos

After a couple’s quiet, reclusive life in the mountainous region of the Mojave Desert is brutally upended by a heinous cult, lumberjack Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) is left with one thing to live for: revenge. Embarking on a blood-spattered journey of carnage and destruction with his trusty chainsaw, Red will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Directed by Panos Cosmatos (BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW), MANDY is unforgettable horror odyssey, featuring one of Cage’s most gleefully insane performances. “[A] hypnotic midnight movie, which veers from astonishing, expressionist exchanges to gory mayhem without an iota of compromise.” – Eric Kohn, IndieWire.
