Celebrities - Roman Polanski

Roman Raymond Polanski (pl. Roman Rajmund Polanski) (born August 18, 1933) is a film director, producer, writer and actor. Polanski began his career in Poland, and later became a celebrated Academy Award-winning director of both art house and commercial films, making such films as Rosemary's Baby (1968) and Chinatown (1974). Polanski is one of the world's best known contemporary film directors and is widely considered as one of the greatest directors of his time. He is also known for his turbulent and controversial personal life. In 1969, his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, was murdered by the Manson Family. In 1977, 44-year old Polanski was arrested in Los Angeles and plead guilty to unlawful sexual intercourse with a 13-year-old girl. Released after a 42-day psychiatric evaluation, Polanski fled to France. On September 26 2009, he was arrested at the request of United States authorities by Swiss police on arrival at Zurich Airport while trying to enter Switzerland.

1 Valid point, jonnydough. It is up to individual patrons to decide for themselves whether the artist's personal life makes it impossible to continue to contribute to supporting their professional life. For me, that is definitely the case re Polanski. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 28, 2013, 12:12 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
2 In the whole scheme of artist (the person, his personal life etc) vs. the art (the movies he makes), it goes down to this. As far as the art goes, he makes movies just as good now as back then (e.g. The Pianist is just as good as Repulsion & Chinatown). As far as the person goes, it is obvious. -- Submitted By: (johnnydough) on September 23, 2013, 2:02 am - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Making good movies is no excuse for running away to a foreign country after committing statutory rape. Boned long ago, and still boned to this day. No amount of good movies and support from the Hollywood elite will erase the stain he made on himself. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on January 19, 2011, 10:50 am - (8 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This sick fuck is a pedophile, but we are supposed to excuse him because he made a good movie? Fuck you, his movies sucked and he should rot in hell with all the supporters. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 18, 2011, 5:11 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Robert, you're just now figuring this out? ;-) Roman Polanski is the uber example of why nobody should ever take anything celebs say seriously. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on January 18, 2011, 4:42 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
6 If priests molest kids, they're reviled like the scum they are, and rightfully so. If celebrities molest kids, they evade justice and their fans either act like nothing happened, or that a mountain is being made out of a molehill. When Roman Polanski was arrested, everyone was getting upset with the government for "digging up an old case". I doubt they'd whine about an old case being "dug up" if the court responded to a 30-year old man's accusation against a priest that abused him when he was a boy. Apparently, if you're in show biz, you can get away with practically anything. Kingbk hit the nail on the head. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on January 18, 2011, 9:05 am - (5 votes) - Login to Vote
7 I kinda feel that the Manson murders were what caused Roman Polanski to lose his mind, but I still get annoyed when some people say things like "child molestation is okay if you're a good director." -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on January 17, 2011, 9:45 pm - (4 votes) - Login to Vote
8 The poster child of Hollywood hypocrisy. Stupid celebs are always bitching at us to save the planet and stuff, yet this pedophile gets a pass because he's a part of the self-righteous elite. The lesson here is make good movies and all is forgiven... or as long as you support the pro-gay, anti-religion, liberal agenda then all is okay. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on January 17, 2011, 2:16 pm - (8 votes) - Login to Vote
9 A pedophile is still allowed to make movies and hollywield still defends him because he makes "good" movies, it makes me sick. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on January 17, 2011, 9:01 am - (6 votes) - Login to Vote

11 If you really want to see it for free, your local library probably has it. If not, there's always other ways of getting movies without paying for them... -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on October 11, 2009, 9:47 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Ive wanted to see Chinatown for a long time, but I dont want to give my vote to Polanski- via rental or sales for what he did. So unfortunately, I wont go to see this film, but perhaps once he is incarcerated in the United States, I'll give it a watch. I think it's awful that people want to give the guy a break on this because it happened in the 70's and he is a talented film-maker- boo hoo Polanski. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 11, 2009, 3:02 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
13 While I don't agree with everything Chubby Rain says on this site, I think he brings up an interesting point in that it seems he admits that it wasn't easy for him (Chubby Rain) to consider that Mr. Polanski deserves to be legally punished for what he did due to him(Chubby Rain) considering "Chinatown" to be a good movie- yet, in the end, as reluctant as he(Chubby Rain) may have been to want to consider it, he (Chubby Rain) knew that a crime being committed did NOT get erased by a criminal's artistic abilities! Unfortunately, there are many who prefer to sweep crimes under the rug and howl at legal punishments against criminals solely because THEY don't want to have to see someone they consider a talented person have to be held accountable for a crime (and ,thus, no longer be able to make movies they like)! Yes, of course it's a bitter irony that Mr. Polanski has been given all this talent but I don't think that alone should exempt him from the standards of other mortals. I'll also address that it was horrific indeed for him to have lost his original family in the Holocaust AND to have had his wife and unborn son so barbarically butchered by those thugs at Manson's behest. I'm NOT minimalizing those tragedies in Mr. Polanski's life in the least. However; even those tragedies added into the mix do NOT exempt Mr. Polanski from having to be considered accountable for what he did to that child. Moreover, I think it's disgraceful that he dishonored not only his own talent but also all those loved ones who needlessly died by doing what he did and whom would have utterly mortified them had they lived to see him doing what he did to that child. Oh, and minimally by his own admission, he committed legal statory rape and fled the US to avoid prosecution- and, by what the prosecutors believe ,he ALSO had his way with the child after drugging her and in spite of her saying no. There are plenty of talented geniuses and survivors of family murders out there who have NEVER harmed children so lets pool our support for them and quit acting as though Mr. Polanski is the ONLY talented film genius and the ONLY survivor of family murders! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on October 11, 2009, 2:53 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 People are actually angry with the Swiss government because they arrested Roman. Maybe if the Swiss government makes a bunch of really good movies, then the people might forgive them for arresting Roman. If people can use "he made good movies!" as a valid reason to forgive a man who drugs and rapes a 13-year old girl, maybe it could work for Switzerland? -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 11, 2009, 9:10 am - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
15 I know he raped a 13 year old- but CHINATOWN was a really good film----- sigh... pass the lemon, tartar and slaw... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 11, 2009, 6:25 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
