Brings up questions
11 July 2001 | by (Cartersville, GA) – See all my reviews

"Manson" is an excellent time capsule from a very different time. It's a bit redundant at times, with all the "shocking" talk about sex and drugs, but the information about the crimes and the casual attitude of Manson's women (considering their backgrounds) toward violence and death is fascinating. The question is: were these people just stupid and extremely vulnerable to a person like Manson or are all of us capable of more than we'd like to think? Or were they really deeply psychologically disturbed to begin with? "Manson" is a beautiful, thought-provoking film.
