What a bunch of idiots. It drives me crazy when Hollywood actually acts like the morally depraved bunch that Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh want to portray them as. The Weinsteins, Martin Scorcese, Woody Allen and the usual crew have signed a petition urging the U.S. to just forgive and forget.
Polanski drugged a 13 year old, raped her, and ruined her life. Then he fled. He should do at least 5 years in jail for the fleeing alone. That’s all there is to it, there is no more.
Woody Allen? Mia Farrow still claims that he molested her daughter Dylan and used the Soon Yi press to cover it up.
Well, it happened a long time ago. That didn’t stop people from freaking out when the Oscars gave an award to Elia Kazan.
This is a totally open and shut case and it doesn’t matter how good a film Chinatown is. Anyone supporting Polanski should be ashamed of themselves.
