Did Elijah Wood come home from New Zealand with the One Ring still safely tucked away in his pocket? That's one possible explanation for the actor's ongoing fascination with playing dark, messed-up characters since going on his heroic journey in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. There was Sin City's Kevin, Wilfred's Ryan and now Maniac's Frank, the most messed-up of the bunch. How messed up? Well, try this on for size: since the death of his mother -- a mannequin saleslady and sometime-hooker -- Frank lives by himself in her old store, surrounded only by plastic ladies. Small wonder he has trouble relating to flesh-and-blood women, an emotional problem he works through by -- what else? -- killing them. C'mon, this movie is called, Maniac after all.
