‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Review: Quentin Tarantino Has Made a Profound, Silly, and Sublime Masterwork [Cannes]

It’s more challenging than usual to talk about Quentin Tarantino’s latest film, Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood , without spoiling a lot of the power of the film. It’s a work that generates much of its power from surprise, and how it’s willing to diverge from the historical record in ways some may find daring and others disturbing. After all, the Manson murders were real, the events took place and no film, as broad or as manic as this one, can in anyway erase that fact. Yet in three glorious ho...

Behind the bloodshed: the chilling untold stories about Charles Manson

Tarantino’s epic is the big draw at Cannes. But there are other Manson movies around – including one about what ultimately happened to the young women who fell under the murderer’s spell Over the last half century, one villain has loomed large over Hollywood. The gruesome murders committed by Charles Manson and his followers in the summer of 1969 have filled countless films and documentaries about stardom and the debaucheries of the 1960s.

‘Charlie Says’ Review: The “Manson Girls” Get A Dim Spotlight [Tribeca]

Doris Day’s public image was the one role she could never shake off | Hadley Freeman

‘Girl next door’ was a label that didn’t suit a woman whose life was anything but ordinaryHollywood has always prided itself on being the place where illusion is sold as reality. But no film director was ever as skilled at mining the gap between fantasy and fact as the studios’ PR chiefs in Hollywood’s golden era (1910-1960), imposing images on their stars that had about as much to do with the truth as pornography does with genuine sexuality. Marilyn Monroe was sold as an all-knowing sexual vamp...

How did 3 young women become involved in the Manson Family murders, asks new film

Director Mary Harron was 16 the summer of the Manson Family murders. Too young to have joined the counterculture of the ’60s, but old enough to have felt its impact on her life by 1969, and sense, as news of the murders reached her home in Toronto, that the world had changed overnight in the darkness that blanketed Los Angeles. “I remember thinking, ‘Oh, that’s it now. It’s over,’” Harron says. “It was like every nightmare the straight society had about the counterculture and hippies come true.”...

Deconstructing Steely Dan: The Band That Was More Than Just a Band

How do you explain Steely Dan to someone who’s never heard of them? Two pretentious, perfectionistic, and very talented white guys who love Bebop and R&B meet in passing at Bard College in 1967. They start a series of bands, one of them featuring Chevy Chase on drums. They rub everyone the wrong way and write songs too complicated for pop and TV but too good to go away, so they become a celebrated studio unit, named after a fictional steam-powered dildo in a William S.

Over the years, I’ve consumed my share of movies — documentaries, dramatizations, deconstructive punk curios — that play off the Manson murders.

Will ‘Once Upon a Time In Hollywood’ Follow ‘Inglourious Basterds’ and Change History?

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood trailer is here, and it’s a blast. The latest film from Quentin Tarantino is a star-studded affair, and based on this trailer, it’s going to lean heavily into comedy. That may seem like an odd choice, since the film features both Charles Manson and Sharon Tate, one of the victims of the Manson Family. But I have a theory – a theory I’ve had for a while now, and one that I feel stronger about after watching the trailer. I think Tarantino is going to take the sam...
