Panos Cosmatos interview

The unnervingly beautiful and grotesque worlds born in Panos Cosmatos‘ imagination are remarkable. The writer-director showed with his directorial debut Beyond the Black Rainbow that he knows how to keep an audience’s eyes glued to the screen, but he can do far more than compose piercing images and an all consuming atmosphere. The visuals in Cosmatos’ new film, Mandy, which feature Nicolas Cage wielding an axe and going after a pack of demonic bikers, are bolstered by a real sense of pain and loss.

Cosmatos and Cage have said before that Mandy is a movie dealing with loss – a loss that fuels Red Miller’s (Cage) journey. There’s some genuinely heart wrenching moments in Cosmatos’ sophomore effort that make it a revenge movie with a real punch. Yes, seeing Cage going toe-to-toe with evil makes for some epic iconography, but Mandy‘s moments of pain and intimacy are just as enthralling to watch. Cosmatos recently told us about making his second film, crafting a large sense of scope with limited resources, working with Nicolas Cage, and more.

nicolas cage interview

If ever there was a match made in heaven, it’s filmmaker Panos Cosmatos and actor Nicolas Cage. The artful duo’s boundary-pushing sensibilities coalesce beautifully in Cosmatos’ thrillingly imaginative horror movie, Mandy, which stars Cage as lumberjack Red Miller, who goes on a tripe blood-soaked journey for revenge. The Academy Award-winner has made remarkable and almost otherworldly transformations throughout his career, and his epic animal-like presence in Mandy‘s Heavy Metal-esque environments is no exception.

While Cosmatos’ revenge tale is sometimes like an acid trip gone wrong in Hell with its nightmarish and lush imagery, the hypnotic aesthetic is made all the more transfixing by the visceral emotions from Cage and co-star Andrea RiseboroughMandy has its share of great fight scenes, including a next-level battle involving chainsaws and a demon, but a crucial reason why the movie is so impactful is the palpable sense of loss. There’s one scene in particular where Cage lets out pure rage and pain that hits like a ton of bricks, which the actor recently told us about filming.

Below, read what Cage had to say about that particularly dramatic scene, studying Bruce Lee and silent films, his punk rock performances, and the most important question of all, “What would Prince do?”

mandy clip

Everything we’ve seen of Nicolas Cage‘s blood-soaked revenge thriller Mandy so far is gore, axes, chainsaws, and a maniacal Cage at his most unhinged yet. But a new Mandy clip slows things down a bit to show us the calm before the storm. There’s no blood or violence, just Cage and Andrea Riseborough as the titular Mandy, murmuring sweet nothings to each other as they enjoy a moment of peace and quiet.

Mandy review

A primal, psychedelic rage-scream of a movie, Mandy takes a while to get going, but once it does, it delivers exactly what fans are hoping for: Nicolas Cage fully unleashing the beast within and absolutely wrecking people with a giant axe and a chainsaw. It’s just a shame it doesn’t get to the blood-soaked revenge much sooner. Read More »
