Go figure that Nicolas Cage’s wildest film project in years is one of the most talked-about films of the year 2018. Mandy, which also will be one of the last films that features a score by Jóhann Jóhannsson before his death, is one that currently holds a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s also a film that I dare call “berzerk”, it’s synopsis still as strange to read as when I first read about it at the beginning of the year:
Somewhere in the primal wilderness near the Shadow Mountains in the year 1983, Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) has fallen deeply for the deceptively charming Mandy Bloom (Played by Andrea Riseborough). However, the life he has made for himself comes crashing down suddenly and horrifyingly, when a vile band of ravaging cultists and supernatural creatures desecrate his idyllic home with vicious fury. A broken man, Red now lives for one thing only—to hunt down these maniacal villains and exact swift vengeance.
Mandy is directed by Panos Cosmatos (Who co-wrote the script with Aaron Stewart-Ahn). It is set to hit theaters September 14th. Check out the new trailer for the film below:
