Hey Roman Polanski... Fuck You

You might not suppose Roman Polanski and the 87-year-old Jerry Lewis had a great deal in common, but today the director followed Lewis' suggestion that broad comedy is inappropriate for women actors by complaining that aiming for female equality is "a great pity".

Speaking at the Cannes film festival of his latest film Venus in Fur, the 79-year-old Polanski said that "trying to level the genders is purely idiotic." "Offering flowers to a lady has become indecent … The pill has greatly changed the place of women in our times, masculinising her. It chases away the romance in our lives."

3. He plied a 13-year old girl with Qaaludes and champagne and anally raped her.

So I'm really not that interested in his thoughts on "romance".

It would be like expecting sensible gun control proposals from Ted Nugent.

On the other hand, those may just be self-loathing, anti-feminist females.

is now EMBRACING Polanski for this stupid endorsement of the patriarchy from his wrinkled old perverted senile rotten brain! One poster actually wrote: "I’m not excusing his behavior at all. I am agreeing with what he’s saying here."

22. Shouldn't a guy who's out to screw a lot of women consider birth control a *good* thing?

But I guess being an "artiste" - even one with, admittedly, some great films under his belt - means common sense isn't necessarily one's strong suit. Sort of like von Trier at Cannes a couple years back.

And this isn't even getting into Polanski's more predatory side. But I figure that should probably go without saying.

34. OK, it was not his daughter. Farrrow and Allen were never married and Farrow legally....

 

adopted Soon-Yi. And she was 19 when they started the relationship. She was legal. You realize 18 years old is old enough to be a porn star? Not even his step daughter.

Is it weird? Sure. But a consensual relationship between a 65 year old man and a 19 year old is not illegal. Ask Hugh Hefner.

For you to compare Allen to a man who drugged a 14 year old girl and raped her is really sick. You need to pay a lot more attention.

28. I agree with everything everyone has said on this thread

thus far.

To which I would add: I don't expect Jerry Lewis to be familiar with contemporary comedians and actors, but shouldn't the man at least be aware of Lucille Ball? The chocolate factory scene in "I Love Lucy" alone is funnier than anything Lewis ever did, and by miles. Anyone but a sexist would recognize Lucille Ball as one of the funniest "broad comedians" of the 20th century. Anyone. But. A. Sexist.

Lenny Bruce, in "How to Talk Dirty and Influence People," did a terrific (and hilarious) takedown of Lewis. Even by the standards of 1950s American comedy, Lewis's "impersonations" of Japanese people were hugely and obviously racist.

As for the other guy, I don't want to risk losing my breakfast by trying to type his name.

30. He's an amazing artist

I mean, one would have to be an amazing artist to be able to reinvent oneself as an even bigger vile shitbag then the big, vile shitbag that Polanski has been for the past four decades. Yet somehow Polanski has managed it.


Amazing!

but a search thru DU says a big grumpy cat NO. Hell, one of my favorite bloggers Ed Brayton (who's excellent with civil liberty issues) says that RP should "be in prison."
