Review: Nicolas Cage fever-dream revenge thriller ‘Mandy’ may blow you away Nicolas Cage in the movie “Mandy.” (RLJE Films) Take a prog-rock album cover, cross it with a trashy 1980s horror paperback, throw in one gloriously gonzo Nicolas Cage performance, and that’s “Mandy.” Director Panos Cosmatos’ visionary revenge thriller is a dreamy genre exercise that’ll appeal to connoisseurs — though it may flummox anyone just looking for a few pulpy jolts. Co-written by Cosmatos and Aaron Stewart-Ahn, “Mandy” stars Andrea Riseborough as the title character: a brainy artist who lives an idyllic life in the woods with her lumberjack boyfriend Red (Cage). Then, Mandy catches the eye of Jeremiah Sand (Linus Roache), a cult leader so smitten with her that he calls on his minions and allies — from this world and beyond — to bring her into his fold. The first hour of “Mandy” will be something of a weeding-out process for audiences. The picture slogs along, with quiet, spacey conversations, broken up by flashes of visual static. There are demonic bikers, nightmarish drug trips and scenes of physical torture, but it’s all slow enough to induce a fugue state. Then, after the cult hurts Red and Mandy badly, the logger reveals that he has his own resources — and his own underworld connections. As Red systematically goes after everyone in Jeremiah’s circle, the movie’s second half devolves into pure mayhem, with one amped-up bloodletting sequence after another. Loving “Mandy” means appreciating what’s special about it from start to finish: from the psychedelic opening to the speed-metal finale. This film is a fusion of kitsch and pulp, underscored with a genuine spiritual yearning.

Instead, they are backing a Japanese counter-proposal that envisages “co-existence” between commercial whaling and conservation. “Science is clear: there are certain species of whales whose population is healthy enough to be harvested sustainably,” the Japanese proposal said. But environmental campaigners welcomed the commission’s decision. “Instead of the archaic and completely unnecessary hunting of whales, the protection and peaceful and purely non-lethal usage of whales, which includes whale watching, should now be the focus of our efforts,” said Nicolas Entrup of Swiss-based NGO OceanCare. He hailed the decision as “a manifesto for peaceful co-existence between whales and humans”.

On Wednesday, pro-whaling nations at the IWC’s biennial meeting blocked an attempt to create a whale sanctuary in the South Atlantic. Brazil’s Environment Minister Edson Duarte, whose country proposed the sanctuary, said he was “disappointed” but would not be deterred. The IWC already recognises two whaling sanctuaries – one in the Indian Ocean and the other in the waters of the Southern Ocean around Antarctica.

He was given extra rest to avoid a start against Arizona at home and again to miss a start against Colorado on the road. Wood faced the Texas Rangers and the Reds instead. Cincinnati hounded Wood on Monday at Great American Ball Park. He gave up eight hits and could not finish the fourth inning. Along the way, Roberts has become more vocal about the regression of Wood’s arsenal, with his fastball velocity dipping and the sharpness of his offspeed pitches fading. After making the All-Star team in 2017, Wood ditched the windup this past spring and decided to pitch solely from the stretch. Roberts indicated the team could revisit this strategy during the offseason. Roberts was still hopeful that Wood’s fastball velocity could improve when used in short bursts. “He’s done it before and he’s really flourished in that role,” Roberts said. “And we expect him to pitch leverage innings and dominate.” Will Smith, one of the top catching prospects in the organization, will spend the weekend with the team in St. Louis.
