Revenge thriller "Mandy" premiered at this year's Sundance Film Festival. Cheddar's Alyssa Julya Smith speaks with the films cast Nicolas Cage, Linus Roache, and director Panos Cosmatos on the making of this movie.

Cage says after watching Cosmato's previous film "Beyond the Black Rainbow" he was hooked. "That's really what put the hook in me. I saw that movie and I didn't sleep for a week. It was powerfully disturbing and beautiful at the same time," said Cage. These qualities which Cage says is on display with "Mandy" are uniquely Panos.

"For me film performance is like music," said Cage. "I think all great art aspires to be music."
