It’s kind of crazy to think how far Jonah Hill & Emma Stone have come since Super Bad, here they are together again in a new Netflix original. The dark comedy (based on a Norwegian series) features the two as strangers united by a strange trial for a drug treatment that will supposedly cure any mental illness or anguish. It doesn’t work out as expected.
It’s a weird teaser. There’s nothing to it beyond the voice of Dr. Mantleray (Justin Theroux), who believes “the mind can be solved.” Maniac hits Netflix on September 21st.
