Just last night we learned that Quentin Tarantino’s next film is a “unique take on the Manson Family murders” — news that sent the internet running through the entire reactionary cycle at an unprecedented speed. Little is known about the project and what Tarantino’s “unique take” on the gruesome true-crime story might be, which only fueled speculation about the film (and inspired plenty of premature judgment calls).
