Secluded and peaceful life of red lumberjack living in the woods next to the lake sweetheart Mandy changes dramatically after near declared a gang of Satanists that attacks on the girl. Survivors and distraught after the bloody attacks of the followers of the cult of red, grits teeth, clenches his fists, sharpening his weapons and goes for revenge. And how they say, revenge it will be terrible.
The film will be very difficult to the perception of the viewer, not used to such a radical experimentation of the Director of the color of performance. In "Mandy" quite a lot of screen time immersed in acid purplish-pink color, through which appear the silhouettes of people/non-humans/trees, and other constituent elements. With one hand the filmmaker Panos Cosmatos (son of Director George pan Cosmatos) using such a rich color palette reflects the existential Paradise two people who more nothing need: most importantly, they were each friend. And first highlighting the background of the tone does not look menacing, but after the life of the red is divided into the"before" and"after", the acidity of the main character being saturated with new, more violent colors, as if reflecting upon it madness.
Think it is no coincidence that the character of Nicolas cage called Red (Red in the translation English)., as if emphasizing its growing aggression, as red as colour is characterized by a motivation to an active and even aggressive actions. At first, the red not is not quite consistent with its name, but then the emotional state goes on high, bringing it to the brink of madness, why the cruelty and hatred of the main character from now on, outweigh the living in it is informed by feelings.
Many have noted the game of cage, calling the role in "Mandy" one of the best in the last few years. Of those movies that went to screens the actor, personally for myself have noted several is quite nice, where Nicolas cage played not bad, so this statement does not agree. All still, even if the film was average quality, he actor look at him soundly. But that was a pleasant surprise, so it's the return of the cage, who plays for the expense of emotion, which for him not very long ago was observed. This crazy look like to face especially wild, almost animal cries that are comparable with the howl of a mortally wounded beast, allow you to mark in first emotional the desire to show not only, but and the behavior, facial expressions, emotions, the madness of his character.
Despite that "Mandy" can be safely attributed to the category of trash movie (and that movie has the entire Arsenal of the necessary attributes), it can suit the taste of those viewers that trash is not particularly like. Scene with an abundance of latex meat and pouring gallons of blood, disfigured muzzle creepy creatures, ripping up bodies with drop down viscera — in short, the recipe of thrash Panos Cosmatos saves.
However, to watch You. Your opinion is not impose.
