In the late 1960s and early 1970s, visionary director Roman Polanski turned out a seemingly unstoppable series of brilliantly paranoid dramas, thrillers and blacker-than-black comedies, including ROSEMARY’S BABY, CUL-DE-SAC, REPULSION, THE TENANT, KNIFE IN THE WATER and, arguably his greatest masterpiece, the epochal L.A. noir CHINATOWN. Despite losing his wife Sharon Tate to a brutal murder by the Manson Family, and a much-publicized absence from the U.S. due to ongoing criminal issues, Polanski has managed to weather the tastes of a changing public with nimble intelligence. The new millennium has proven to be a time of creative triumph for Polanski with the Oscar-winning THE PIANIST, a dark adaptation of OLIVER TWIST, and this year’s critically-lauded and award-winning THE GHOST WRITER.
