Netflix Must Watch: “Roman Polanski: Wanted And Desired”
It’s fascinating to think how huge certain stories would be if covered by the 21st century media. The same media that glorifies criminals and turns murder cases into spectacles would no doubt have a field day with the famed director. I couldn’t tell you if many people in my age bracket (20-25) have ever heard of Roman Polanski, but I can tell you I’ve never had a conversation about him with friends. Although his story is one of the most fascinating and disturbing in American film history, it seems as if his struggle has been put on the back burner in exchange for the constant updates on the Bieber’s and Lohan’s of the world. From the tragic murder of his wife, to the scandal that forced him to flee the United States, Wanted and Desired provides an in depth look at a star’s fall from grace. Do yourself a favor and block off 90 minutes of your time for Marina Zenovich’s documentary. You’ll be glad you did.
