Who Did The Soundtrack? A Worthy Doc For The Greatest Living Boxer Such An Inspiring Movie Good Movie, But . . . . . A Beautiful Story Realistic Portrait of Small Town Life Not As Good As The First My Main Problem With the Movie So Katya Was Right? *Spoilers* If You Liked This One View all posts >


Yes, not knowing about historical iconic figures is the epitome of being out of touch with the past. I mean, she died of a drug overdose in 2001, so I mean, she probably walked on the wild side a little. From her brother: <blockquote>“Her heart gave away. It was just hard living,” her brother said to the publication. Lewis Scruggs added, “Her choice of boyfriends was not great. She spent all the money she had and more and would go into the depths of depression. The word ‘filter’ was not in her body. I loved Kathy, but she was crazy.”</blockquote> Maybe you're right about women not being more reckless causing them success. It's the reason most of the people in prison are men and most of the great entrepreneurs are men. We're naturally risk takers, which can lead to great failures or great successes. But the fact still remain that most successful rich women don't live reckless lives. You'd never be able to do to Oprah or Martha Stewart what these women did to those men because Oprah & Martha Stewart aren't that reckless. The best case scenario (for a criminal) would be like some weird chick in the arts (music, Hollywood, modeling), because they're the ones who would leave themselves vulnerable to that type of thing. Businesswomen though? Nah. No it's not ignorant. Again, Charles Manson is one of the 20th Century's most infamous figures. If somebody didn't know who Al Capone was I'd say the same thing. Charles Manson's not somebody you have to "study" to know what he is, just have watched the news, TV, or listen to radio, or consumed popular culture during the past 50 years I can't help but think that this will affect them for a long time to come, which I think is the whole point of the film. Crimes like rape victimize whole families, whole communities. Nobody involved with this will ever be the same again. Yeah, KG's a Hall of Fame basketball player LMAO Not quite as big. Let's be real, Sharon Tate was one of the most beautiful women anyone has ever seen and her image as the victim of this horrific crime made the case what it is today. Dude, I was born in the '80s and Charles Manson is one of the most famous (if not the most famous) murderer in modern American history. I grew up hearing about him all the time. You are just out of touch with the past. Like Manson's in movies, TV shows, music, and the Tate-LaBianca murders are what he was known for. You must be even younger than me and I'm in my 30s. I have noticed that people even just a few years younger than myself (younger millennials) aren't quite as historically aware as we were forced to be in the pre-internet world. And I'll bet you a lot of money, most young people don't know about Custer's Last Stand or John Lennon's assassination. They might know about The Holocaust, Lincoln & Kennedy, and maybe Pearl Harbor because they took a test on it. I've had the same exact theory for years!!!!! I'm so glad someone else sees it I was born in the '80s, but even in the infancy of cable TV (and before the internet), I grew up watching reruns of "I Love Lucy", "All In the Family", "Good Times", "Leave It To Beaver", and all those other shows on regular TV. When I was a kid, those shows were on everyday, so I never got this idea that life didn't exist before me. It's the same with music. I grew up with old music all around me because there were tons of oldies stations and we were essentially held hostage to listen to our parents music, but now in a world with smartphones and laptops, kids really don't have to share any popular culture with their parents that they don't want to. It's really sad, if you think about it. View all replies >
