Heady Entertainment: “Mandy,” “Maniac,” and Michael Moore Are Here — Just Add Marijuana
The most potent, pot-ready pop culture picks of the week, featuring the ultimate "Cage Rage," the new Aphex Twin EP, and some '90s grindhouse reissues!
Published on September 21, 2018

Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

At the movies this week, documentarian Michael Moore ignites inconspicuous truths in Fahrenheit 11/9, while Nicolas Cage roars into narco-fueled prog-metal fantasy in the tripped-out horror-revenge dream Mandy. On Netflix, Emma Stone and Jonah Hill reunite for the first time since Superbad on the darkly deranged comedy series Maniac

On top of the aforementioned heat, you can trip back to the early ’90s grindhouse scene or the high-’80s MTV era with collector’s edition Blu-ray releases of Angel Town and The Bride, respectively. On the musical front, new releases from Aphex Twin, Gøggs, Young Dolph, and Supersuckers represent a vast spectrum of fresh sounds worth getting stoned to. So let’s get straight — but not “straight” to this week’s fresh-rolled recommendations.
