Joe Spinell Story, The (2001)

**** (out of 4)

Another brilliant documentary from director David Gregory and Blue Underground taking a look at the troubled like of character actor Joe Spinell. From The Godfather, Taxi Driver, Rocky all the way up to Maniac and his incredibly bizarre and still unsolved death. What's so great is that the documentary doesn't pull any punches and shows the complete life of this guy who had a heart of gold but personal demons as well. We get to see him with Steven Spielberg during the Oscar nomination announcement for Jaws as well as footage from the unfinished Maniac 2.
