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

In the 50 years since the Manson Family committed the brutal murders that shook the nation, the cult and its infamous leader Charles Manson has never really left the public consciousness. And this year, the number of movies attempting to decrypt the notorious Manson and his all-consuming influence has ramped up, with everything from shockingly offensive horror films to star-studded Quentin Tarantino dramas taking on the cult leader. But what about the women who were under Manson’s thrall? Charl...

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.”...

‘Avengers: Endgame’ and the summer movies you’ll want to see

As we all know, “Avengers: Endgame” will be the biggest film of the summer/year/all-time-and-space, and this culmination of all things Marvel Superhero will influence movies we see for a long time to come. However, while it is kicking off Hollywood’s most lucrative season and everyone will be talking about it, “Endgame” won’t be the only tone-setter for film summer 2019. Sure, there’ll be more costumed crusaders before Labor Day. There’s the Disney-absorbed Fox Studios’ last X-Men adventures, “D...

50 years after Manson murders, ‘The Haunting of Sharon Tate’ team says film empathizes with the victims

Writer-director Daniel Farrands says the nerves that arrived as he started work on “The Haunting of Sharon Tate” never left him through the months of writing, shooting, and post-production on the film. “It’s like, until this very moment, this interview with you, anxiety persists,” says Farrands, a veteran horror filmmaker whose work on the film has a ghostly dream-like quality. “We’re treading in a way on holy ground with this, and you have to be very careful.” That same sense of responsibility ...

William S. Burroughs’ Manifesto for Overthrowing a Corrupt Government with Fake News and Other Prophetic Methods: It’s Now Published for the First Time

The Boy Scouts of America have faced some deserved criticism, undeserved ridicule, and have been cruelly used as props, but I think it’s safe to say that they still bear a pretty wholesome image for a majority of Americans. That was probably no less the case and perhaps a good deal more so in 1969, but the end of the sixties was not by any stretch a simpler time. It was a period, writes Scott McLemee, “when the My Lai Massacre, the Manson Family and the Weather Underground were all in the news....

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...

This New Take On ‘Peanuts’ Replaces Charlie Brown With Charles Manson And IT KILLS

“Helter Skelter’s coming! Listen to me, I’ve got all the answers!” Good grief! Charlie Manson is up to no good! FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF Wow, talk about the salty and the sweet.

50 moments from 1969 that shaped entertainment and pop culture

It was the last year of the ’60s, and the last year for Boris Karloff, Judy Garland and the Beatles, too.
