I thought my gf was gonna hate this (she generally won't watch anything horror-ish with me) but she thought it was fantastic. Everyone I watched it with was just in kind of a speechless daze afterwards.

my wife is down for the gore and the horror and trippy weirdness (she *loved* "A Field in England") but parent-losing-a-kid trauma is a bridge too far for her

I didn't vote in the film poll because I didn't see enough 2018 films to make it worth anyone's while but if I had Mandy would've been my #1, no question.

this was prob the best time i've ever seen it, they cranked the volume at momi and it was almost uncomfortably loud and i was so high, waves of vibrations, total sensory overload

in the q&a aaron stewart-ahn referred to magic mike xxl as a masterpiece, my kind of person

I follow him on twitter! I can’t remember when I did so, but it was way before Mandy. I think he interacted with or knows s1ocki?

excited to fry my friends' brains w/ this today

also apparently the shared cinematic reference between stewart-ahn and panos for this film was cyborg

american bradass (BradNelson), Sunday, 30 June 2019 14:06 (one month ago) link

well this certainly delivered

in a funny way it felt like every scene was better than the one before it

not untrue imo, it just keeps building in about fifteen different ways as it goes on

Friend introduces me to "panos"

Me after shaking his hand to friend: "panos cosmatos?"

In hindsight he could totally hear.

How not to be.

I saw a midnight screening of Mandy last night. (Sadly underattended; The Room and Rocky Horror proved to be bigger draws. And I brought a flask to drink along with the bathroom scene.) What got me is that both Mandy and Midsommar culminate in triangular structures, built for ritual purposes. Was this a coincidence, or do such buildings commonly occur in vernacular architecture?

Also, between these two movies I'll never look at folkloric embroidery the same again. But then I never was the customer for such garments.
