    If Mandy – the new film by Italian-Canadian director Panos Cosmatos, released in the UK this month – had been made in the 1960s, it might have been categorized as bikesploitation on account of The Black Skulls, a demonic motorbike gang who stalk the California mountain forests where the film is set. The chainsaw-wielding weirdos in those mountains could have dragged the movie squealing like a pig into hicksploitation redneck horror, and the LSD that everyone appears to be either micro- or macro-dosing throughout certainly would have tripped Mandy into psychsploitation, too. The Children of the New Dawn, a murderous hippie-Christian cult in cahoots with The Black Skulls, might have given the film a godsploitation label, but the heavy metal aesthetic that kerrangs throughout Mandy takes it into glorious rocksploitation. All this before we’ve even gotten to the core theme of loss and retribution that makes it a gory revenge movie, a splatter that matters. Did I mention that The Black Skulls also like human flesh? So, if Cosmatos made this film in the 1960s, he’d have made a cannibalpsychbikerockgodhicksplattersploitation flick. And that doesn’t even begin to cover it. – 如果《曼迪》这部由意大利裔加拿大导演帕诺斯·科斯马托斯本月在英国上映的新电影是在20世纪60年代拍摄的,那么它可能会被归类为《黑骷髅》,一个恶魔摩托车团伙,潜行在加利福尼亚的山林中,电影就是在那里拍摄的。S集。在那些山里那些挥舞着电锯的怪人会把电影像猪一样尖叫的拖进乡下人的恶作剧,而整个过程中每个人似乎都是微观或宏观剂量的LSD肯定也会把曼迪拖进心理探索的陷阱。《新黎明之子》,一个与《黑骷髅》合谋的凶残的嬉皮士和基督教的崇拜,也许给这部电影贴上了“神谕”的标签,但贯穿曼迪的重金属美学却把它带入了光荣的摇滚乐。所有这一切之前,我们甚至已经得到损失和报复的核心主题,使之成为血腥的复仇电影,飞溅的问题。我说过黑骷髅也喜欢人肉吗?所以,如果Cosmatos在20世纪60年代制作了这部电影,他就会制造出一个吃人鬼的电影。甚至还没有开始覆盖它。

    To experience the music of the composer, who passed away last week at the age of 69, was to hear something tense, physical, almost pugilistic – 为了体验这位作曲家上周逝世69岁时的音乐,他听到的是一些紧张的、身体的、几乎是拳击的东西。
