    You Were Never Really Here

    "The film presents Joe as battling to suppress these memories as they emerge at inopportune moments, conveying a vigorous internal conflict that never feels truly resolved until the film’s final moments. Joe’s traumatic past has resulted in a number of self-destructive coping strategies that we see him wrestle with constantly and which are mirrored in Nina’s equally bleak character arc."

    Mandy

    "Mandy is a vision so ludicrously kaleidoscopic that it will (hopefully) alter the light in which Cage is viewed, and it marks perhaps the greatest synthesis between the actor and a director who matches his rhythm since David Lynch wrote a snakeskin jacket into the screenplay of Wild at Heart upon Cage’s request."
