Strange, surreal and dreamlike barely begin to cover Panos Cosmatos’ bizarre and blood-thirsty vengeance film, Mandy. It’s a trip and a half, or was it two and half trips? You might be able to make the case that it’s surreal enough to take place entirely within Twin Peaks’ Black Lodge. It certainly seems to be going for uncanny Lynchian vibes.
This movie couldn't have come out at a better time. We need this movie, maybe now more than ever. I couldn't help but get caught up in the emotional themes, and there's some remarkable film craft on display as well. It's easily one of the best films of the year.

I had such a fun time with this movie! I might need to see it again just to see if there were jokes I missed while laughing. It's endlessly clever and witty and hilarious. Easily the best batman movie since The Dark Knight, arguably the most entertaining ever, and certainly the funniest. I mean that as a compliment to this film as well as a slight to DC's more recent efforts.
