Very interesting story but terribly produced and narrated., 24 November 2010
Author: gizmoe639 from USA

I was very excited to see this film. The story of Charles Manson is very interesting to me. I had a very hard time making it past the first few minutes of this film. The narrator delivers the information so hastily, and with out any discernible order. He just babbles on incessantly. I will give him credit, he is passionate about the story he is telling, but is overly excited and somewhat unable to be followed. There's a wealth of information here, but its piled upon its self in such a way that it is nearly impossible to sort it. Parts are better then others, but i was very disappointed in the film. I feel that if someone who had better public speaking skills, and better delivery, this could have been a very good informational film. The narration jumps around, and is full of information that does not relate to the story line being discussed at that point.
