If you like revisiting Charles Manson and how they were, maybe this film is for you. I just didn't see the point of a cult movie that had no point. Why was this movie made? What message did it have? That people are crazy and kill and abuse each other? Who doesn't know that. And I didn't understand the fuss made about the actress playing MMMM. It was a two note performance, as the previous reviewer had said. The film was gut wrenchingly depressing. It took me two days to get out of the aftereffects of the downer feelings I felt after seeing this film. It's the only film I've ever walked out of with no interest to stick around for the Q & A. Awful!
