Fascinating piece on an underrated actor
6 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 49 minute documentary on the late great actor Joe Spinell, found as an extra on the Special Edition of "Maniac", is pretty comprehensive and very informative. Featuring interviews with those that were close to him in life, I found all the stories that were told in this documentary to be fascinating and it's very much worth watching. I've reviewed a good many documentaries made for Special Edition DVDs of various films and have found that the some of the best ones were all directed by David Gregory and somehow when reviews all of those previous documentaries I've always neglected to give him props for them. Well I wish to remedy that oversight here and now. David, you make great docs and mad thanks to you for that.

My Grade: A
