The Manson Family on Film and Television
Leveringstid: Sendes innen 21 dager
The Family story is fascinating for myriad reasons including the horrendous, seemingly inexplicable violence, the glamorous Hollywood setting, Manson's strange charisma and his seeming willingness to embrace the role of evil icon. It also casts light on issues such as celebrity, race, youth in revolt and the dark glamor of random destruction, issues which are no less relevant today. Although the murders committed by the Family are almost 50 years old, our fascination has only grown stronger, raising questions such as what is the undying appeal of the case for film-makers and what does it say about the audience for these films. This study is an attempt to provide answers.
