Mathew "Bright"


We only call him Bright because that is his name. We continue our analysis of his script MANSON GIRLS. Please note that there is so much historical inaccuracy it is sickening. And bad writing. I hope any financier realizes that what buried THE HURRICANE movie was the inaccuracies. I don't think Sadie was at Esalen being fucked by Charlie. The girls were arrested using a credit card from Mary Vitasek not Gary Hinman. Charlie never had a copycat motive idea. How many errors and stupidity can you find? -----------

ON FAVORING TABLE – showing Charlie giving a massage to Sadie.

ON HIPPIES – looking ever so peaceful, when Sadie is HEARD.

SADIE
Oh, fuck... Yeah...

ANGLE ON SADIE – as Charlie climbs on her like an animal and starts fucking her in full view of the PATRONS.

ON ESALEN CLIENTS – watching Charlie fucking Sadie with these bemused expressions. .

CHARLIE

Who’s your daddy? Tell me who your daddy is?

SADIE

Oh, baby… You’re my daddy… Yeah, you’re

my daddy…

CHARLIE

Flip over, baby! Yeah!

ON CHARLIE – as Sadie enthusiastically flips over to receive Charlie missionary style.

BRENDA NARRATING O.S. cont.

Esalen had a well deserved reputation for being

a real “do your own thing” kind of place, but I

guess Charlie took it a little too far and the

management ended up throwing them both out…

EXT. ESALEN ENTRANCE – DAY

Charlie and Sadie are shoved out the door by a bunch of HIPPIES.

CHARLIE

Yeah, fuck you, you hippie cocksuckers! Fuck

you! You think you’re better than me! You better

watch your backs, motherfuckers! ‘Somebody

might come out’a nowhere an’ cut your goddamn

hearts out, you hear?!

SADIE

Yeah, you fuckin’ people totally bite, you know

that?! Fuckin’ assholes!

Charlie storms angrily away with Sadie following.

SADIE cont.

Charlie, wait up!

INT. GARY’S HOUSE – DAY

COPS walk in to look at Gary’s body which is now covered in flies and looking really, really disgusting.

BRENDA NARRATING O.S.

And then while Charlie and Sadie were off

role playing at Esalen, the cops found Gary’s

body and immediately put out an APB for his

missing cars…

INT. HIGHWAY 5 – CENTRAL CALIFORNIA – DAY

Bobby Beausoleil is on his belly, crying in the dirt next to Gary’s green FIAT as the COPS cuff his hands behind his back.

BRENDA NARRATING O.S.

And a couple of days later, wouldn’t you know

it? Bobby got pulled over just outside Ventura

in Gary’s Fiat… It was the last day of freedom

he’d ever know..

EXT. SEARS ENTRANCE – DAY

Mary Brunner and Sandra Goode are standing outside the entrance to Sears with their hands up against the wall as TWO POLICE OFFICERS handcuff them.

BRENDA NARRATING O.S.

And then the following day, Mary and Sandra

got pinched with a bunch of stolen credit cards...

CUT TO:

EXT. SPAHN RANCH – DUSK

Charlie is obviously in a horrible mood after his ejection from Esalen as he marches up to the ranch with Sadie following

INT. SALOON – FEW MINUTES LATER

Brenda, Sadie, Squeaky and Clem are fooling around under a pile of sleeping bags, when Charlie enters.

SQUEAKY

Hey, Charlie. Hey, Sadie... Did you hear

about Bobby?

CHARLIE

No, what about him?

SQUEAKY

Oh, fuck… Charlie… This is bad… Bobby got

pulled over in Gary’s Fiat and now they’re

holding him on a fucking murder charge in

Ventura!

CHARLIE

What a dumb shit!
BRENDA

Then this morning Mary and Sandra got caught

with a whole sack full of credit cards!

CHARLIE

That ain’t so bad… But Bobby… That’s bad…

BRENDA

No, no… They tried to use Gary’s Visa card!

CLEM

(giggling)

But check it out, man… The cops were too stupid

to put any of it together.

CHARLIE

What, you think they’re not going to figure it

out?!

SADIE

Maybe they won’t.

CHARLIE

You’re a fuckin’ idiot...

(to Squeaky)

What’s their bail?

SQUEAKY

No bail for Bobby… And right now the girl’s

bail is six hundred... But there won’t be any bail

when they realize they’ve got Gary’s Visa card...

(beat)

We’re completely tapped out, Charlie… We’ve

got no money.. You put everything we had into

dune buggies...

BRENDA NARRATING O.S.

And that was when Helter Skelter turned from

being real for us, to being real for everybody

else... See, Charlie figured if the cops were called

to another crime scene that was enough like where

they found Gary’s body, then they’d have to let

Bobby go...

(beat)

And if he kicked off a race war that toppled the

white, Christian pig power structure while he

was doing it, then so much the better.

Looking into my chrystal ball, I predict that everyone is going to be saying "Who's your Daddy!?" by the end of the month!!! OMG, my stomach hurts. I haven't laughed this hard since Flarp (tm) !!!

Pristash said...

Hmmmm, where's the Hostess Twinkie truck? Doesn't his speeding ticket discredit that he could have been at Esalen at all just before the murders? Perhaps the filmmakers are substituting Sadie for Schram so us audiences with our nortoriously short attention spans don't get too.........confused?

And did BB know that the murder weapon was hidden in the wheel well of Gary's car?

Hi, everybody, Groove on this if you choose:

http://kstp.com/article/stories/s421846.shtml?cat=10830v=1

Just today, the body of an Ithaca College student from Minnesota found in a pond...too early to say whether or not there is a link.

Speaking as someone who has struggled for many years to find work as a writer I have to express amazement at the quality of this script. It is absolutely, unrelentingly dire. It beggars belief. It plays so hard and fast with reality that the mind reels. The dialogue is so stilted, so tortuous, torturous even – that I have to conclude the writer can never have heard normal people speak. I’m no lawyer, but surely this is libelous in the extreme. The worst thing of all is that it will probably get made, avec or sans Ms Lohan.

Now Polanski, there’s a guy who made good movies (well, most of them, we might ignore Pirates). The only Don Murphy movie I saw through was Natural Born Killers (he was one of the producers). Not a bad movie. I did start to watch The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but gave up after half an hour or so – not for me. And I’m too old for Transformers, but I guess Kids like it.

But this movie looks like it was written by a semi-literate eleven year old, with vague half-memories of something he had once read, and who filled in the gaps in his knowledge with pure Fantasie. Some of you find this hilarious - I'm afraid in me it induces despair.

Ohhhh K...I will now make another attempt to read the entire excerpt...

(ON FAVORING TABLE – showing Charlie giving a massage to Sadie.)

(ON HIPPIES – looking ever so peaceful, when Sadie is HEARD.)

SADIE - Oh, fuck... Yeah...

(ANGLE ON SADIE – as Charlie climbs on her like an animal and starts fucking her in full view of the PATRONS.)

(ON ESALEN CLIENTS – watching Charlie fucking Sadie with these bemused expressions. .)

CHARLIE - Who’s your daddy? Tell me who your daddy is?

SADIE - Oh, baby… You’re my daddy… Yeah, you’re my daddy…

Ohhh K, I failed again but, HAHAHAHAHAHHAHA...I did get another good laugh for the day !

Thanks Col !

Brian Davis said...

Pristash,

Thanks for that link..that is scary stuff, man.

And even more intresting, as you seem to be alluding to in your post, is the "smiley face" the killer(s) are using has an "x" on the forehead.

Weeeeird.

Re: The killers -- "Sinsinewa" is an Odawa / Chippewa Mative American word for "herb woman". That's likely why it's found in MI and MN. And before you guys think anything untoward... I've never, ever been anywhere near Minnesota. Maybe we-uns should rethink our signature
x:-) Or maybe we're just so cool, the killers borrowed it from us.

Re: The script -- my loved ones and I have been gleefully rewriting it.

"Why aren't you 'hoes out on the street raising some bail money?"

"Sorry, Charlie, but we DID steal for you lots of Twinkies!"

Brian Davis said...

"WOOOORD UP, Charlie", says the other Manson girl in agreement.

Force 17 said...

Im not laughing anymore, this is just crap-i mean can they at least get the sequence of events in the right order-is that asking too much.
Maybe i have missed the point and it is in fact a comedy.
Crikey any person on this site could write a better script than that.

It would be interesting to count the number of historical movies made in Holywood (sic!) that are without significant factual error. There are numerous counter examples.

This does seem like a total stinker tho. BUT WHAT AMERICA REALLY WANTS TO KNOW IS: WHO WILL PLAY THE CORN FED HOMECOMING PRINCESS TURNED POLITICAL PRISONER?! WHAT WOMAN AMONG THE BOTOXED & SILICONE INJECTED WANNABEES HAS THE ACTING CHOPS TO REFLECT THE BRAINS, THE NATURAL UNTOUCHED BEAUTY, THE INNOCENCE, THE DEPTH AND THE SINCERITY OF THE UNFAIRLY IMPRISONED LVH (freedom be upon her) ????

FrankM said...

WHO WILL PLAY THE CORN FED HOMECOMING PRINCESS TURNED POLITICAL PRISONER?!

How's about Brit star Keira Knightley? She's refined enough, good looking enough, etc.

And a question? Where did LVH display her crotch for all to see? I missed that ...

A.C. Fisher Aldag said...

Hell-e-wood movie without too much error: Erin Brockovich.

LVH: The little girl that was Hermione in Harry Potter.

But who is gonna play Charles? We've been suggesting Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and the dude who was the computer geek in the last "Die Hard" (same bone structure) but of course, nobody is listening to us.

FrankM said...

AC

Didn't all this thread start because the film was going to be made without CM? On this blog back in, was it February?

But if we are going to have Charlie in the movie, how about CA's own Arnie, with a Hummer instead of a dune buggie.

Now that would be seriously funny ...

OK, lets use EB for an example. They collapse two main characters (two high powered lawyers) into one person. And they add a "biker" love interest (in reality, she was having an affair with the head of her law firm).
And thats just for starters, yet this movie was presented as a "true story" and won an Oscar! If a person really wanted to be merciless, they could make EB look as bad (from a factual point of view) as MANSON GIRLS.

I don't want mean to single out EB. I think Hollywood simply can't make a factually correct movie because facts get in the way of the story and that can't be allowed to happen.

This is a lengthy but good analysis from Salon:
The Real Story
