Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired (Marina Zenovich, 2008)


Marina Zenovich digs up the facts on the notorious case that's kept one of the world's most hallowed living auteurs in exile from Hollywood for three decades. She focuses mostly on the legal implications of the event (and the surrounding media circus) and tries to distract you with half-relevant subplots any time the moral implications come up (he's survived unfathomable trauma! lots of people screw minors without doing jail time!). While it's certainly engaging for the issues it tackles, her film feels somewhat minor for the issues it skirts around.
