Absolutely Twisted – Part Two


Woody Allen, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese today added their names to a petition demanding the immediate release of Roman Polanski from detention in Zurich. The director was arrested on Saturday over a three-decade-old underage sex case when he arrived to receive a lifetime achievement award at the city’s film festival.

“Film-makers in France, in Europe, in the United States and around the world are dismayed by this decision,” says the petition, which is co-ordinated by the Société des Auteurs et Compositeurs Dramatiques (SACD), a film industry organisation which also represents performance and visual artists.

“It seems inadmissible to them that an international cultural event, paying homage to one of the greatest contemporary film-makers, is used by police to apprehend him,” it adds.

Mark those names of people in the film industry who think that being one of the “greatest contemporary film-makers” gives one a pass on drugging and raping a 13-year old girl.

    Gaius –

    Well, what else would you expect from Woody Allen?

    I’d ask these ‘men’ if they would be so forgiving if it had been their 13 yr. old daughter. Oh! And recall a few years back how this same community treated Elia Kazan at the Oscars when he went up to collect some award they were ‘granting’ him.

    BTW, have you read the 13 yr old’s testimony? The Smoking Gun has a copy:


    Sickening. I am want to say that the mother and the ‘woman’ at the house were not ignorant to what was going on.

    Maybe Zurich should add Woody Allen, David Lynch and Martin Scorsese to their detention.

    If Charles Manson had been a better musician they’d likely be demanding his release too.

    One of the French newspapers ran a poll on Polanski after the the French “cultural leaders” all came out for his release. It ran 4 to 1 in favor of Polanski’s arrest and extradition. My opinion of the French public immediately rose….
