Roman Polanski is the brilliant filmmaker of such classics as CHINATOWN and REPULSION and ROSEMARY’S BABY, among others, and now he’s the subject of this chillingly fascinating documentary from HBO about the scandal over his sex with a 13 year old girl in Jack Nicholson’s bachelor pad in the 70s Hollywood Hills. The trial that followed, his flight from America (he didn’t even come back for his Oscar in 2003 for THE PIANIST!), and his subsequent issues in this country have made for a brilliant piece of retrospective journalism.
