This film directed in 1972 by Robert Hendrickson and Laurence Merrick on Charles Manson’s ‘Family’ really is a must watch. I wasn’t aware that such intimate footage existed of those involved, and the result is a very revealing, and at times disturbing account of the family’s activities, mentality and Manson himself. Featuring footage from their Spahn Ranch compound, Devil’s Canyon, their Barker Ranch hideout in Death Valley, the Hall of Justice in Los Angeles and various other locations, and accompanied by music created by Brooks Poston and Paul Watkins, two former Manson associates, along with music performed by the Manson Family themselves. Some of the stories told in this film are absolute insanity, and I really loved the way it was shot and put together.
