Mandy ★★★★½

If this movie were about 5% less adolescent - cut out the fat and gay jokes and lighting the cigarette on the (SPOILER) - it would probably be all time top ten for me. As it is, it's just a fucking great big screen experience for the ages from a director whose aesthetic wires so deeply into my nervous system that I forget to think, forget to breathe, and get entirely swept away. I was bummed that it took eight years to follow up BEYOND THE BLACK RAINBOW, but honestly? There's probably eight years worth of stuff in here, and I'll happily wait another eight years if it means an equally dense singular and intoxicating experience.
