Maniac

Really interesting scifi/thriller/comedy about a near-future world and some disparate folks undergoing psychoactive drug trials, which is really difficult to explain but definitely made for a few hours of excellent viewing. Reminded me a lot of Brazil, but with more modernly interpreted retro-future features.  If THAT makes any sense. 👍
