Panos Cosmatos' Mandy, A Movie Review

* Spoiler Alert

It's not too late to go see Panos Cosmatos' Mandy. This film should stay in theatres till at least mid-October, and will keep most horror film enthusiasts looking for a visceral experience sated. When Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough) is critical to the plot, the sequence of events that happen will no doubt leave one particular lumberjack (not Paul Bunyan) to a brink of madness. He's a nobody about to become a somebody (more on this later). This woman is a very forlorn soul. Riseborough is the perfect choice in the role, offering pathos to a very troubled character. Because of events that occurred in the past, she prefers to live a life in isolation; her feelings for Red (Nicolas Cage) runs deep. The two are soul mates. One day, on her walk home, a priest of sorts takes a liking to her and orders his minions to her kidnap her.
