Roman Polanski

Recommended Posts

Big call especially in light of further information (see quotes), the facts he's always denied it and has proven a similar allegation in the Vanity Fair libel case was just that, libel.

 

In December 2008, Polanski's lawyer in the United States filed a request to Judge David S. Wesley to have the case dismissed on the grounds of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct. The filing says that Judge Rittenband (now deceased) violated the plea bargain by keeping in communication about the case with a deputy district attorney who was not involved. These activities were depicted in Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired.

 

In January 2009, Polanski's lawyer filed a further request to have the case dismissed, and to have the case moved out of Los Angeles, as the Los Angeles courts require him to appear before the court for any sentencing or dismissal, and Polanski will not appear. In February 2009, Polanski's request was tentatively denied by Judge Peter Espinoza, who said that he would make a ruling if Polanski appeared in court. This decision appears to have ended litigation in the case, at least for now.

That same month, Samantha Geimer filed to have the charges against Polanski dismissed from court, saying that decades of publicity as well as the prosecutor's focus on lurid details continues to traumatize her and her family.

Also:

In 2008, Geimer stated in an interview that she wishes Polanski would be forgiven, “I think he's sorry, I think he knows it was wrong. I don't think he's a danger to society. I don't think he needs to be locked up forever and no one has ever come out ever — besides me — and accused him of anything. It was 30 years ago now. It's an unpleasant memory ... (but) I can live with it."

 

Reeks of accuse someone famous syndrome.

 

Did you know Cul-De-Sac was shot in Northumberland?

By the way he's a 50/50 director at best, so the question should be:

Average director or kiddie fiddler?

That would be Muranau. Saw a very good 16mm print of Sunrise a few years back. Love the later Hollywood Noir period. Even its latent fingerprints on films like The Third Man.

I'd rate Frantic up there with the best of that genre of action schlock.

Parky, changes like the water in his bong - often.
