The biggest first-run movie in our five-year history, Mandy returns to The Frida Cinema this February! 

Pacific Northwest, 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller (Nicolas Cage) and Mandy Bloom (Andrea Riseborough) lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand (Linus Roache), Red is catapulted into a phantasmagorical journey filled with bloody vengeance, and laced with fire.

To delve deeper into Mandy here would be to risk spoiling many of the film’s surprises – or as Heather Wixson of Daily Dead wrote in her five-star review, “There are so many reasons why I loved Mandy, and I feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface here – but to be honest, so many of those things were genuine surprises for me as I was watching it, and I feel like that’s the best way for anyone to see it.”

Directed by Panos Cosmatos. 2018. 121 minutes. Rated R.

“Were scientists to engineer an uncut, 100-proof cult sensation, it would probably look, sound, and kick like this.” – A.A. Dowd, AV Club

★★. Those still suffering from withdrawal symptoms from the end of David Lynch’s epic Twin Peaks revival last year – the cure has been found.”– James Croot, Stuff.co.nz

“Mandy is a totally uncompromising vision from a singular filmmaker – a pulsing, twisted descent into heavy metal vengeance that must be seen to be believed.” – Ben Pearson, Slashfilm
