I'm a lumberjack and I'm Okay. Until the night some drug-crazed biker, hippy, Jesus-freaks showed up at my cabin in the woods and killed my woman.

Nicolas Cage transforms from a mild-mannered lumberjack living blissfully with Mandy, a new age artist/shopkeeper, into raging homicidal maniac on a revenge rampage in a self-indulgent visual orgy of 1970's and 80's imagery to an incessant soundtrack of foghorn and bass guitar. This film certainly qualifies for the Incredibly Strange section of the NZIFF.

Mandy is not without humour. The chainsaw duel with its nod to India Jones is my favourite set piece in the film.
