Everyone knew Joe Spinell in Hollywood. He was a real rat bastard and everyone knew that. Yet, it was a shock for me when I met him for the first time back in 1982 on the set of Vigilante that I though, "this guy is okay. He's a real good actor to be around."

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.
