Polanski: another past victim

Roman Polanski is annoyed that sexual assault cases hurt appreciation of his films

As Roman Polanski has returned to the film festival circuit, debuting his latest film, sexual assault allegations against him continue to mount.

On Tuesday, a fourth woman came forward to say that she was a victim of the acclaimed 84-year-old director. Former German actress Renate Langer filed a report with Swiss police claiming that Polanski raped her in February 1972, when she was just 15 years old, according to the The New York Times.

The day before, the Academy Award-winning director was at a press conference in Zurich, promoting his latest film, a psychological thriller about the relationship between two women and with the strangely apt title “Based on a True Story.”

The Polish-born director took a few moments away from talking up the film to tell reporters that it was “unfortunate” that his new work and his other acclaimed films — “Rosemary’s Baby,” “Chinatown” and “The Pianist” — are now viewed through the filter of the sexual assault scandals that surround him, the Hollywood Reporter said.

In offering a rare comment on this allegations, Polanski also argued the scandal should be behind him .....

I had written a blog post about him last August when a judge in the US decided not to dismiss the case against him here for having drugged and raped and sodomized and forced oral sex on a 13 year old girl against her wishes in 1977.

Poor rapist - so hard to enjoy your wealth and fame and the praise of suck-ups when these peaky victims from your past keep popping up. He has never shown a shred of remorse for any of these assaults.
