| Seen it all before
The connection between Dennis Wilson and Charles Manson is not really focused. It's all about Manson leading up to the Tate murders. Seen it all before and there are better docs about this topic. Manson was in fact after Doris Day's son Terry Melcher and supposedly killed Tate out of frustration he couldn't find him. For years he and Wilson lived in fear. The only interesting thing about this doc is that it shows the many faces (literally) of Manson. Bearded, long hair, no beard to bald. Also members of his group were interviewed. It seems they are still behind Charley. Polanski is only seen briefly in the press conference which took place after the murder.
