Mandy ★★★

If this was 80 minutes long it'd be the movie bro catnip you crave: visually completely dazzling, exceptionally violent and unpleasant, frequently hilarious (intentionally or not, depending on your level of ironic detachment), and loaded with mega-Cage. But that extra 40 gives you plenty of time to think about how wickedly, unnecessarily slow, completely corny and affected, and vaguely misogynistic it all is. I'd be lying if I didn't say this was a good time, the Yes album cover demonic hypno-drone is pretty much unimpeachable, but whatever Cosmatos thinks he's up to he could sure stand to lighten the fuck up a little.
