Maniac was filmed in NYC wasn't it? in 1980 I think. I've only seen it once, but loved every second of it. From the number of movies I've seen from that decade, there was a real murky and surreal atmosphere that emanated from that place... I'm not sure if I'd enjoy a number of films as much if it weren't for that mood. I've always related to that ugliness (for lack of a better term, I mean this in the best way possible). Add the solitary approach with those gritty cityscapes and it's what I look for. Interesting that you mentioned it... I think it's the only release I've seen by the director. Great movie that goes beyond the surface, how the hell did I forget about it?
