    Everyone liked it, but different ways. For a film this close to my heart, I was relieved at the reception it received. Spike Lee in his fully energetic and rancorously artistic prime.
    So glad I finally got to see this on a big screen.

    MVP: When Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Teyonah Parris, Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett, John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson are in a Spike Lee Joint, how can I possibly name a single name????....

    Note: Cusack's Church speech featured near the half-way mark is in my short list of ineffably cinematic quotes. Check out the list here! letterboxd.com/mcbuckers/list/favourite-quotes/

    Everybody really liked it. I was shocked at how my opinion has changed of it. Now one of my favourite horrors, hands down.

    (I listed the timing as 2hr40mins for a cut of the film 40mins too long than what I had. I didn't realise the mistake and had a few apologies as a result.)

    MVP: Nicholson and Kubrick, why only one film together??...

    This, this is a goddam masterpiece.

    I loved every second of this, every unnerving shot, every psychedelic colour, every insane plot development, every deafening note, Mandy is in my opinion one of the best directed films I have seen for ages. With this level of method behind the madness, the only comparison I can naively draw up is between this and 'mother!', but even then the similarities are sparse.

    I need to see this again. I want to decide where about on my Top 50 it needs to go. If you're on the fence about seeing it, just do it.

    MVP: Cosmatos is a celluloid God.
