First I just want to say that that is probably one of the worse movies I have ever seen. I am not the best at picking up bad acting, in fact Im just as bad at doing that as these actors are at doing their jobs! I can act better than that. On the other side watching the movie I did learn a lot about the case, because up until this point I really knew nothing about Manson at all. I could not stand the family. They were some of the most annoying people I have ever seen, and the way they represent themselves, especially in the courtroom is disgraceful. Also for a bunch of hippies, why are they all packing heat on the ranch? After the trial, they should have taken the guilty party outback and butchered them just like they did to those two poor families and that way they would have been dead before the State Supreme Court abolished the death penalty.
