Mandy


1983. Lumberjack Ed with my friend Mandy lives peacefully in a picturesque forest near the lake. Nothing surprising, but in the woods, something evil — a religious cult in a company with a hell of a biker gang. It's a bad time Mandy went to take a walk in the woods, where I liked the sinister leader of the cult of Jeremie. He ordered the bikers to kidnap a girl pumps up her drugs and betrays the ritual burning. And leaves no choice to the lumberjack Red, but to embark on the path of revenge.

A perfect example of that and the hackneyed plot of a slasher can be wrapped in this whimsical wrap that completely forget about all used cliches.

The film — dip, film — bloody meditation, film — the sour mix colors in surrounded by heroes.

And final — cathartic.

How narcotic would not been the trip — I want to repeat again and else else.

A skillful mix of aesthetics 80s, a great cast, slow storytelling, chainsaw massacre (literally, of course, it after all, slasher), wild look of Cydia and sectarian madness.

Nothing new you here is not will see no unexpected plot twists not with you going to happen, any truth in the movie you will open — but it's a journey definitely worth taking.

This film is in 2017 I was waiting for the most. Perhaps due to the fact that critics trumpeted that is one of the best movies of the year and almost not the best role Nicolas cage. Perhaps because of the stunning poster, which clearly hinted at the that the entire film is impregnated with a retro.

Then I haven't know that film — Panos Cosmatos, who made one of the most mysterious, scary films of the 21st "On the other side of the black rainbow". The film is fascinating for its atmosphere and retro-futuristic style. Cosmatos on the first plan does not story such a atmosphere style. So when I know that he's the Director of "Mandy" I already approximately knew what to expect from this movie.

A film on the tone of the narrative is divided into 2 parts. The 1st part — malleable, tight and unclear. Long with a lot of dialogue. 2nd well is part concentrated Kajewski crazy with the icing on the cake is the author of handwriting of Comatose and with a pinch of gorgeous retro-wave from Johan Johansen.

How have caused by — for Cosmatos himself plot only base on he layer style and atmosphere. The atmosphere here — is this a drug trip and mystic at beginning of cocaine intoxication and grotesque cruelty in the end. And all flavored with poisonous red tsvetchrom and grit on screen.

Style retro same here probably done better than where no was. From prophetizing axe hero cage molds for the punishment of his enemies (which mine is made of silver so as cage went to kill is clearly not people in the usual sense) up to animations, imbued with all the same the proverbial "spirit of the 80's).

In conclusion: the film is clearly not like everyone. Many will scare the slowness of the narrative in the beginning of a small amount of dialogue and any of explanations because of which the plot of the film seems incomprehensible. Others will attract the style, music and the brutality of the film. For me, this movie is a escape from all these monotonous mainstream movies.

P. S for the song Starless from King Crimson in the opening credits, the film separate respect.

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.

Nice view.
