Quotes

William Lustig: The drinking and the drugs with Joe escalated after we finished Maniac. He was really getting bad after that, both personally and professionally. I think the financial success of Maniac might have facilitated some of his behavior. He owned a sizeable portion of the film, and profits were coming in within six months after the release, and the distributors then gave him his share of the money, which Joe took and went out and did stuff that he might not have done.

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.
