Nicolas Cage and Mandy

What seems to be one of his best performances for at least a couple of months, Nicolas Cage is back to his manic brilliance.  Not only that the film looks a bizarre mix of genres.  From action via animation to horror with a little dollop of comedy.

The main question that I have is “Why Mandy“.  That isn’t really answered but what is is “how is she going to be rescued”.  That does involve a stupidly large, probably stupidly magical, axe thing…

Not only that, we have a couple of images to go along with the trailer.

Pacific Northwest. 1983 AD. Outsiders Red Miller and Mandy Bloom lead a loving and peaceful existence. When their pine-scented haven is savagely destroyed by a cult led by the sadistic Jeremiah Sand, Red is catapulted into a phantasmagoric journey filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.
