    Oh he does. No doubt about that. My favourite one is The Tenant. I don't believe I have ever been so creeped out by a film. It was like his true self was coming out.

    Just poking my head in, a la Laugh-In, to say: Ew. That is all.

This could have been done decades ago had he just been a man and taken care of his business. I personally am sick and tired of hearing about this old pervert. LOL

    At the age of 81, I see no point as to why he would want to come back. His directing days are pretty much over.

    We need to send Dog the bounty hunter and his tits in the guise of a woman named Beth over there to get him. The Mullet and Boobs never fail.

    He's scum allright. I remember when he got a standing ovation when he won the Oscar for The Pianist, one of Hollywood's finest moments.

    I have yet to read anything so far, but me thinks Dershowitz will use his past to get sympathy for the old guy. His childhood in war torn Poland, the horrific murder of his wife and their friends. A little thing like rape is nothing to what he has endured. Hollywood will be in his corner on this, and that makes me fucking sick.

    Well that card has been played out. There is nothing left but for him to Man Up. If he can't do that, he can die where he is and not bother coming to the US.

    He will pull out that card as a last resort.. lawyers ! I doubt he will man up, he's to arrogant. So yeah, your right he can die where he's lived for the last 30+ years.

    Listened to an interview on the radio with Angelica Houston the other day. When asked about Jack, Roman and the lady involved and what went on up there, she was pretty ambivalent about it. Methinks a LOT of people there in Hollywood are in the same boat.

    I agree, brilliant director. I was watching an interview from last year, and when he talked of Sharon you could see the deep sadness in his eyes. It's probably the only time I've seen him look completely lost when he spoke about her. His emotions were very raw. Horrific as that was for him, it in no way excuses him for the choices he made after her death.

    He stuck his pecker in a 13 year old Girl. Everything else has become moot to me.

    ETA: I wonder how long it would have taken Sharon Tate to figure out what an ass and pervert he is, if she had lived.
    To play devils advocate, I've often wondered if her killing contributed to the sexual compulsions. I'm not excusing him, but sex is so primal & at least to me, life affirming. I can see how someone would go off the deep end & use sex as a coping mechanism... Never mind that rape is about control. One hell of a life given all that's happened to one man. He has issues either way, but I had to throw that out there.

    Very interesting view, but he was having sex with everyone prior to meeting Sharon. His marriage to her changed nothing, he continued to see other women, it was just the way he was. It had nothing to do with her personally. She would have tired of his infidelities had she lived, she would have divorced him. I don't excuse what he did, but the one thing that has always bothers me about the case is why was this girls mother not with her. She had to have known of his reputation with women in general. I've read other articles that say mother and daughter are not as innocent as they would like you to believe. Who knows.

    There's a difference between promiscuity and raping a child. I really am of the belief that there could have been some trigger that lay within her death. I mean, even if he was f*cking around, one can do that and still love their spouse. To have them murdered while you're overseas AND fucking around? From everything I've seen/read, I do think Roman blamed himself. Even now when he's mentioned it, he has this look in his eyes that genuinely haunts me. I don't think he's unaffected by any means.

    I guess it's obvious that I don't think Roman is evil in the sense that many on here do. Let me be clear though —I don't want that to be confused as supporting his actions. I don't. With that said (pure speculation) you look at the man's entire life. The holocaust, what he saw as a young child, his mother dies, father leaves him with relatives after he marries another woman, he feels that father betrayed his mother (see- Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir) Wife is murdered, baby is murdered... It's like a bad joke. Plenty of people have awful childhoods and don't rape anyone, but I also think that there comes a point where someone is going to snap. In Roman's case, I don't think it was the rape itself that was his 'snap' but the man is haunted. That much is clear when one looks at him. Even when he's being fairly lighthearted, he's dark. I have compassion for him, as I would for anyone who's had the life he's had. I can condemn his actions, but that doesn't take away my compassion for the wounds that are there.

    As far as SG and her mum... I blame the mother almost as much, though in a different way, from Polanski. She was a stage mom (have reasonably credible info from a friend who's been in the industry for years) and IMHO, her kid was her meal ticket. Or so she thought. I hold Polanski responsible for what he did, don't get me wrong, but the mother absolutely failed that girl. My former (almost) stepdaughter is a child model/actress who's currently around the same age. She's never allowed on any set without her parent or guardian also present. Neither her father, mother or myself would have even dreamed of sending her to a shoot without one of us being there. She's a talented girl, surprisingly innocent for growing up in this town but those of us around her are extremely protective. Her childhood is far more important than early fame.

    Some things to consider.

    Amplifying the case against him are the facts that he drugged the girl and that he skipped out before the sentencing.

    Mitigating in his favor are the facts that the judge in the case reneged on a plea deal that the prosecution and defense had agreed upon, that he hasn't reoffended in 40 years, and that the victim wants the charge dropped.

    I don't see why he's fighting the case anyway. He's old and all he needs to do is stay in France for his remaining years.

    The cops have surely got other things to expend their limited resources on.

    I agree with you on so many points, and like you I hold him responsible for his actions. As for her mother, she absolutely failed on all counts. It's a question of he said/she said, none of us were there, so who knows what the mother told her to do or not do. Was she trying to please the mother ? Again what Polanski did was WRONG, she might have come across as mature looking ,but she was still 13. This is a case that can be argued forever. That's a problem I think a lot of people have, I remember being in school at that age and meeting girls that knew exactly what was going on. Was she one of those girls ? I think the mother used her, and when things didn't pan out for them as she planned she turned the tables on him. He fucked up for sure, but so did the mother.

    So we should assume without evidence that he's done it again and punish him accordingly?

    I'm sure he didn't stop. Of course in France they applaud having sex with children.

    My parents told me never to accept rides from people who are sure of things with no evidence. I've always found it to be good advice.

    lol Well check out the Cosby thread. I'm obviously not the type to convict with no evidence. You can look at patterns of behavior and make some pretty accurate assumptions about them. I mean that's what psychological profiles are all about and they are eerily accurate most of the time. Of course you can't be 100% sure he fucked another child, but the odds are pretty good he did. I mean if someone put a gun to your head and said you have 5 seconds to choose one; Polanski did or didn't have sex with another child after the one he got caught for. Knowing what you know what would you choose? I know where I'd place my bet.

    Do you have any evidence that the odds are pretty good?

    Yes. There's mountains of evidence that child rapists don't stop raping children. It's the interwebz. Go do some googling and investigate for yourself. Of course I thought this was common knowledge.

    At least one came forward, Charlotte Lewis said he molested her when she was 16.

    Of course that SOB will continue to get a pass from Hollywood, and no doubt another standing ovation if any more Oscars come his way.

    I'm not surprised. From other articles I've read it seems that they can't be bothered. He will always be Roman Polanski .. director and rapist.

    Probably because his daughter Morgane has been spending some time in the States as of late. She would like to try her hand at Hollywood and see what happens.
