The latest installment of the popular serie, "Maniac" has been highly anticipated for several reasons. First and foremost is the fact that this movie is directed by the same director who made the movies "Pierrot le Fou", "Les Miserables"Nashville". This kind of continuity is welcome and welcomed in Hollywood.
The movie also showcases the talents of the actors in the movie. Some of them are almost Hollywood actors and have a long list of film credits that include "The Hangover", "Les Miserables", "Pulp Fiction", "Elysium", "Oz the Great and Powerful", "Tangled", "Hangover 2", "American History X", "Idiocracy" and many more.
There is something about the movie that makes you feel it is not so much of a comedy but rather an insight into the life of someone who was very mad, in a different sense of the word. This is the main concern of the serie. We find ourselves in a world which is full of diseased characters but strangely enough an individual (Christine Jepsen) who is sane and still maintains a moral code. She tries to help the actors to maintain a 'normal' life even when their lifestyles are at odds with each other.
Julia Jason is one of the actors in the movie. She played a leading role as the doctor's niece and she kept getting more attention due to her great acting. The movie gets its idea from real life as the storyline is based on a true story of what happened to a lady named Dr Christine Jepsen in Paris in 1986. It is one of the most famous cases in the world of medicine.
The Movie is worth watching. There are not many times where a person comes across characters and situations that are portrayed so accurately on screen. In fact, it is even hard to differentiate between a reality and fiction. But there are some things which are similar to how a real life would be and those include, the sense of humor, the inordinate amount of free time and the complex relationships which the leading characters have with each other.
There are a lot of conflicts in the movie, which lead to the downfall of one character's life, the other character's well being and ultimately, the actors' too. The plot is so cleverly constructed that it does not seem to have too many twists and turns and the main idea of the movie is that of an emotional roller coaster ride that goes around. The performances in the movie are well done and each character gets a proper appreciation. The movie is truly an eye opening experience.
Not many people know that celebrities, who are on the run all the time, still make the time to do some filming on a daily basis and they create a mystique in the world. By doing this, they promote a healthy lifestyle and the causes that they are advocating are not lost to the public and in fact, are widely known to the public.
The rise in popularity of the SERIE over the past few years has caused the public to expect more high quality movies in the SERIES and this was evident by the reaction to the film. Not many movies seem to make any impact on the public and this movie comes close to being one of them. It is a very positive movie, which promotes a healthy environment and values, which are admirable and commendable.
