This is worth seeing for a dozen or so transcendently great scenes and moments. And I can definitely understand why a person would love this film. Nicolas Cage also does not disappoint.

But listen. The actor who plays the cult leader gives one of the worst performances I have seen in my life. It's not just that he's bad; the camera lovingly lingers on him as he tediously delivers one terribly-written monologue after another. I almost stopped the movie because of how ineffectual and mind-crushingly boring this character was. The wasted potential here is kind of tragic.

I would recommend seeing Mandy, but don't feel bad about fast-forwarding through much of the first half. (I wish I had.)
