Pseudohistory of the Manson Family.
13 March 2019 | by znuzhuSee all my reviews

The movie is about Charlie Manson and his manipulation tactics on the members of his cult.

Now let's start off with the good:

  • The cinematography in the film is remarkable.
  • Costumes is on point with the time period.
  • A few of the things said by Charlie in the film is accurate.
  • Matt Smiths portrayal of Charlie was remarkable.


Now for the bad:
  • Most of the acting in the film felt very amateurish.
  • The male members of the Manson Family are reduced to side characters.
  • Not enough focus on the atrocities which they committed and too much focus was on the emotions and mental state of the female members of the family.
  • The alteration of historical events so the viewer will sympathize with the female members of the Manson Family.


If you are looking for a accurate portrayal then this film isn't worth watching.
