There can be no debate that Mandy is actor Nicolas Cage’s magnum opus.  Director Panos Cosmatos’ surreal and psychedelic revenge tale is a hyper-violent fever dream that provides Cage with enough guns, barbed wire, chainsaws and vodka to battle a religious cult leader and his otherworldly minions all over “The Shadow Mountains”.  You have never seen anything like it and for Cage fans it may never be bettered.
