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?

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

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.

How is it that I'm only just now realizing that the director of Mandy is the son of the director of Cobra?

OMG what if Mandy's demon bikers are just Cobra's axe-clanking cultists after thirty years of drug-induced mutation? I don't care if it's incoherent, I declare it to be so.

cobra is definitely batshit in a not-entirely-dissimilar way to mandy but its derangement is based in hyper-reaganite leather-glove-fetishism instead of melted psychedelic drone

wait until you find out his first film was paid for by dvd residuals from Tombstone

Love is showing off your Cheddar Goblin t-shirt to your out-of-town guests only to learn that they've each arrived with their own different Mandy-related t-shirts.

really love the whole story about cage insisting that he play red
Well, when I first met with Panos, he told me he wanted me to play Jeremiah Sand, and I said, “Why?” And he said, “Well, I see him as the California Klaus Kinski.” And I said, “Well, I am the California Klaus Kinski, but I want to play Red.” ... I did not want to play Jeremiah Sand. I felt that I had gone through enough life experience. Not that I can’t work from the imagination, I normally do, but I had enough life experience contending the failure of my third marriage and still trying to recover from the loss of my father after many, many years. Still not just quite over it. As I look at these footnotes here from the talking points that coincide with Panos himself, that I … having had experiences with loss, certainly family loss, I was in step with that.I felt I could play Red authentically and organically and put those feelings of loss in a productive place as opposed to a destructive place, and a constructive place. And so, that’s why I gravitated towards Red. I just felt that I could go after the cult and the demon bikers in a way that was in his world, but had some sort of sound of truth.

This is why I love Nic Cage and why this movie really works. There’s such a genuine core of raw emotion underneath the fantastical trappings
