Cinema of Roman Polanski by John Orr

Book Description

Roman Polanski is one of the great maverick figures of world cinema, with a long career starting in Poland with his short films of the 1950s and running through to the present with "Oliver Twist". His personal life has been controversial and often tragic. Yet the notoriety of celebrity has made us overlook the true importance of his films in cinema history. This collection is a critical re-assessment of that role, long overdue. It highlights the bold and dazzling diversity of his work as well as recurrent themes and obsessions that have had such a powerful impact upon audiences throughout the world. Films discussed include "Knife in the Water" (1962), "Repulsion" (1965), "Rosemary's Baby" (1968), "Chinatown" (1974), "Death and the Maiden" (1994) and "The Pianist" (2002).
