I rated Charlie Says 7/10 on IMDB


Saw this at the Venice film festival. Packed performance. And deservedly so. We get into the story without much exposition. And what a story. The ethical dilemma of the prison workers, especially the educator. The shifting awareness of the 3 prisoners. And the disturbing replaying of Manson family life.

Each actor does a great job with their character. This is a dramatisation that does what a documentary could not: give us some of the inner life, experiences, and emotion of what it might have been like.

It’s a bit long at times but this gives the movie space to extend the drama and make the characters fuller than they could have been in a more edited movie.

Well worth seeing.

I go to the movies now and again. I take a few photos here and there and play with them a bit in Adobe Lightroom.
