This Sunday, the Alamo downtown will present a single screening of Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired, a documentary portrait of the brilliant director and sometime lecher.
Apparently, the film focuses heavily on the infamous, circus-like statutory rape trial that led to Polanski’s self-imposed exile. But it also explores the Polish director’s turbulent early life, including his time in a German concentration camp, and the brutal murder of his wife, Sharon Tate, by the Manson Family.
Whatever you think of Polanski himself, the guy has led had an amazingly interesting life, and I’m interested to see how he’s presented here.
UPDATE: This will actually be playing a few times next week. I’m dumb. Got tickets for Sunday, though.
