His Movies Don't Put You to Sleep
Of course everybody in Hollywood wants Polanski to go free. He's an artiste and we eagerly await his next masterwork. Conversely, a director who makes movies that put the audience to sleep doesn't have to commit rape rape to be sent back to prison. Just one-word rape, sans italics, is enough to lock them up, even if they fled the country so long ago that the victim's no longer a child, so what's the big deal?
If your movies put people to sleep, pay those parking tickets or they'll come back to haunt you when a festival in a small foreign country finally agrees to show your work (for a fee).
