I know literally nothing of the truths or stories surrounding the Manson murders. Maybe that would have changed my feelings on this movie. Not sure though, at least it would have helped my understand the premise a little more. I'm in the "not a fan" camp.
If you don't know the history of LA, the Manson stuff, Polanski, movies, etc then I'm sure this movie wasn't very good.
Finding out what really happened almost pisses me off more as far as what he did in the movie.
His movies aren't for everyone. I thought it was a great spin and brought DiCaprio's character full circle. In the beginning he dreamed he was a pool party away from being on top again. The "pool party" just happened to involve a flame thrower lol. I thought it was great.
But again, I honestly can't imagine watching it if you don't know all the history I mentioned. You probably missed most of the important lines and foreshadowing because it wouldn't make any sense to you.
Just curious, how old are you? I'm really surprised how many people don't know anything about the Manson murders.
But I sort of intentionally avoid pop culture stuff. Never had any interest in reading up on manson and all he did.
I had actually just read on here that the movie was good and had almost no idea what it was about.
