Quotes

[During Red and Jeremiah's final encounter]
Jeremiah Sand: You unholy abomination! You aren't even worth my spit! It's all that hate in your heart... that's to blame. It follows you everywhere, man. Follows you everywhere. I can still help you. It's not just your life I can save. No. It's your goddamned soul.
Jeremiah Sand: [while Red grabs him by the head] No, no! No, no! Please, please. Please don't hurt me! Can't you see this was all part of your journey? A journey that led you to me... to your salvation, your cleansing......

The Masterpiece of Grindhouse Cinema as a Total Art form
12 September 2018 | by Krush_BurnerSee all my reviews

There is first and foremost word one should know about this film before watching it, and this word is: "Gesamtkunstwerk". In 1840s Richard Wagner used this term to describe the work of art which embraces different forms of expression and unifies them within a single form. This constitutes "Total Work Of Art", and "Mandy" is definitely looks like one of such works. This parallel my seem odd and even ridiculous, but Panos Cosmatos's film is nevertheless great example of a film in which form and content are united inseparably and supports one another. On the surface lies amazingly crafted revenge action horror, tenderest love letter to every grindhouse fan, full of gore, creepy soundtrack and fantastic acting (besides brilliant Nicholas Cage there's a great performances by Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roach, plus cameo by Bill Duke), with a lots of geeky references. But this is only the beginning. In the deep abides dark, twisted story, which incorporates themes from religion to current political agenda in an visionary style, filled with bright, screaming colors and aesthetics of a violent vengeance. This is obviously very personal film, made from particular point of view, but it has an universal meaning thanks to story and acting. Tragic and sarcastic, violent and sentimental, with it's tongue-in-cheek humour and witty dialogues, this simple story becomes something magnificent. In this way, again, "Mandy" can be regarded as an attempt, conscious or not, to establish a total work of art, perfect blend of narrative, music, acting and subtext into something very powerful. This is 1980s-inspired exploitation film made by genius. Go see it. Think of it. Let it flow through you. Enjoy the ride.
