Directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga, the trailer of Maniac shows a doctor or scientist interrogating two patients, or in their terminology ‘subjects,’ with the first question: “Do you know where you are right now?” The patient replies, “I’m in a drug trial.”
This is how the story begins, as the doctor claims this trial is no therapy rather it’s science. He goes on to explain further: “once you begin to appreciate the structure of the mind, there is no reason to believe that anything about us can’t be changed.”
With this human trial, the doctor claims to destroy the pain and solve the mind of individuals. On the other side, patients believe that their heads don’t work right and these people in this mysterious lab can fix them.
Can our minds play tricks? Can any type of drug or therapy change the way we see the world? Can we experience multi-reality brain magic? Then what is real and what is not?
We will get to know more about this mind-bending, sci-fi drama when it arrives in September. For those of us who are more curious, you may fetch further about Maniac – as this series is a remake of the Norwegian show of the same name which aired in 2014.
