Quotes

[on Joe's death]
William Lustig: There's a funny story that I'm sure Joe is laughing about in Heaven. One of the things that Joe kept was the fake severed head from the ending of 'Maniac'.

S10 Reviews: The Joe Spinell Story (2001)
25 September 2005 | by (The Void) – See all my reviews

This documentary (included on Anchor Bay's special edition DVD} is a fascinating look back at an excellent character and just plain all around crazy guy who lived a very fearless and uncompromising lifestyle. It talks to many of his friends and family and covers most of his major roles including "Maniac". It covers from his birth and rise in Hollywood to his untimely and mysterious death. The film isn't as polished as I would like but it suits a guy that was full of rough edges and had a heart of gold to go along with his talent and ambitions. Most of the stories told are quite fun and it's clear that Spinell lived life to its fullest.
