Not what I was hoping for....

At first I thought, "Who better to play that self-proclaimed gangster Charles Manson than perhaps the best gangster actor of all time?"

I would have thought DeNiro would have nailed it, but instead he reverts back to acting like an old mafia-like gangster.  And I really couldn't figure out who Michelle Pfeiffer was playing, Sandy or Squeaky?  Gypsy even perhaps?  Why they made Tex into a teenager I'll never know.  The portrayal of Leslie Van Houten was right on though.

But don't even get me started on all the facts they have messed up.  Even Sanders, that Fug, wasn't as bad as this.
Speaking of Sanders...

For Fug Fans...

Ed Sanders Live at Burchfield Penney Art Center January 12, 2013

This video has a little of everything for the Ed Sanders fan.  Poetry readings, sing-songs, sociology and Ginsberg....

What was of interest to me however, was the last paragraph in the description of this video:  
"Two of his books, 'The Family' and 'Tales of Beatnik Glory' are under option to be made into movies."

I checked Imdb and found a title in development- "The Family" scheduled for 2014 but you need Imdb Pro to get any information, of which I am not a member.  So I have no idea if this is related or not..if someone else has access, we would appreciate any info.

Watch the Sanders video here:
