See it if You're into psychological dramas and intense subject matter, and an empathetic portrayal of someone who made a terrible mistake in her youth
Don't see it if You want action or high production values, or if you're turned off by the whole Manson story, or a relatively predictable ending.
See it if you're interested in a new perspective on the infamous Manson family.
Don't see it if you are repulsed by anything Manson-related.
"Marion, who both wrote and directed the piece, leaves us with little more than tepid interest in her subjects, due mostly in part to a rudimentary script and adequate acting...Brentan’s interpretation of Manson is, at times, chilling but is written and acted with singular dimension. Certainly psychopaths have more complexity than that...As evidenced by the gentleman who was stretched out and sound asleep within the first 30 minutes of the play, 'You Are Perfect' misses the mark."
"My main complaint is that, while it is good, it doesn’t go far enough. Despite its movement to probe deeper in to the mind of Susan Atkins and the mentality of someone brainwashed by a charismatic psychopath, it didn’t leave me with a particularly fresh insight into manipulation or cult mentality...‘You Are Perfect’ is not perfect, but it is also far from bad. There’s certainly enough drama here for a regular theatergoer, certainly enough tainted hearts for a nihilist to enjoy."
