The first six minutes of Maniac starring Elijah Wood


Here are the first six minutes to Franck Khalfoun's remake of Maniac, starring Elijah Wood. Our own Nick Valdez hasn't seen the clip but asked if Wood is dancing like he's never danced before. Well, if by "dancing" you mean "being really creepy," then yeah, he's dancing like a motherf**ker.

What's most interesting about these first few minutes is seeing how Khalfoun plays with the subjective camera. The film is shot almost entirely (if not entirely) from the POV of Wood's character. This makes me wonder how the film plays with this formal choice.

Maniac hits theaters some time in 2013. I've included the poster for Maniac in the gallery.
