Strange world.

Up there with Herzog showing up in "Jack Reacher" for me.

This French article claims that shooting was supposed to start in July.

Putting aside the questionable and criminal nature of the act, it is odd how Polanski is one of the few men who has been made to pay a serious price for his actions, when other men guilty of similar acts are feted without any reservation.

What is it about him that has made him a target to some who choose to ignore similar actions from other men?

You would think that the man's especially tragic life would earn him more, not less compassion.

Probably because he's a foreigner.

The boring, hard to accept reality might simply be that Roman Polanski is both a brilliant director and a sexual predator.

Oh for sure. It's hard to fathom that one individual could be victimized by so many different tragic events. Surviving the Krakow ghetto and then having his pregnant wife slaughtered would have been enough to render most people crazy with grief and Polanski endured both atrocities before turning 36.

Could be. Artists, the wealthy and sociopaths tend to feel the law only applies to mere mortals aka ordinary people. And, of course, some famous people fit all three catagories.

Polanski's life has so many tragic and interesting elements that it will surely not be long after his death that someone makes a film of it.

Directed by Woody Allen and produced by Weinstein.

The only current director whose life I find as fascinating is Peter Bogdanovich's. Apart from the hilarity of having Orson Wells as houseguest, with the Strattens it's almost like Bogdanovich re-enacted Vertigo. If the present generation of journalist were worth a damn they'd revisit these cases when reporting the current round of Hollywood behaviour.

IIRC, he paid for the education of the younger Stratton after Dorothy was murdered and more or less molded her into his idealized woman?

It was a bit dickish that he actively tried to sabotage his ex-wife's career after their divorce (though not immediately after as they were collaborators for a while after their separation). Petty to say the least.

Or perhaps he tried to mould her into her dead sister... Bogdanovich had a history of sleeping with his leading ladies as did many directors. I think Nastassia Kinski once said she had slept with all her directors. It was accepted behaviour.

Cybill Shepherd and Candice Bergen are two of the women he definitely had on-set affairs with.

As I recall from reading "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls", none of those directors come out looking particularly nice. Of course, why would they be?

Interesting read, despite the lumping of Woody Allen into this group.

I'm not at all interested in the punitive side of this story. For all of the talk of destroyed careers, how many of these men have truly been ostracized to the point of it ending their artistic endeavors?
The rape that Roman Polanski is accused of happened in the 1970s. He has made four movies in the past decade, the most recent one released last year. Which is, especially considering his age, a decent return. Not all directors remain as prolific throughout their 70s and 80s as say Ridley Scott.

But I would ask a question in terms of this so-called "female fascism": do you believe these "flawed geniuses" should face any sort of consequences for their crimes/felonies?

I'm on the record as stating that I'm not too fond of "justice via social media" but at the same time, the argument as presented above seems to be that individuals of great artistic merit should be given leeway to d whatever they please?

I'm not sure what you mean by "accepting how men are".
Not all men are the same, so by that measure, the accepted behavior of men should encompass a wide variety of behavior.
