The Man is a disgruntled and disturbed citizen, a loner on the mean streets of New York City and New Jersey, as he ventures into isolation and violent misanthropy. He deals with tragedy by dispensing his own form of justice on the criminal low lives that "keep on hurting the good people." In doing so, he attempts to help young prostitute Gina to free herself of her abusive pimp Johnny Ramone. Eventually using two hand guns, he sets out to rid the world of the people "doing terrible, horrible disgusting things to other human beings." Written by cinematicheroes@aol.com

A great movie! Watch out for Sam Borowski!
15 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

There's a lot that I could say about this movie... I will say only one thing: AMAZING! Sam Borowski's genius as a director definitely shows through this film!

Maniac will make you laugh, cry and think as it hurls you into this world. Bill Sorvino (The Man) does an amazing job as the main role and the relationship between Joe D'Onofrio (Johnny Ramone) and Paige Wilhide (Gina) will somehow make you laugh and grit your teeth at the same time.

Sam Borowski has definitely created a wonderful piece of art. His direction and genius is self- evident in this film. Be ready for a film you will not soon forget.
