Leslie, My Name Is Evil
Rating: ** 1/2

Woodstock’s 40th anniversary received a lot of attention this year but another, equally important event from the summer of love hasn’t been as celebrated — until now.

The Manson murders are the subject of the newest film from Canadian director Reginald (Monkey Warfare) Harkema.

A surreal retelling of the Helter Skelter killings, the subsequent trial and a juror who falls for one of the defendants, the movie is more interesting for its visual panache and ideas than actually entertaining.

This is a strange movie about a strange time.
