On paper, MANDY sounds like the best cult film of all-time.

It’s part Lynchian drug-fueled zaniness, a touch of style via Ridley Scott LEGEND and BLADE RUNNER, with animated sequences drawing inspiration from Ralph Bakshi, and an over-the-top DEATH WISH performance that Nicholas Cage was born to play.

It’s just too bad the viewing experience does not add up to anything worthy of referencing…outside of the Cheddar Goblin. Yes, there is a Cheddar Goblin and his 30-second cameo is glorious.
