The End of the Innocence: A Swiss Prison Playlist for Roman Polanski Behind Bars

Posted: Updated:

I like "Rosemary's Baby" as much as the next aging cineaste, but as a parent I must confess that I like actual babies even more. Call me old fashioned, but I still believe that kids should not be taken advantage of sexually -- even by a significant filmmaker. And so my heart does not break for Roman Polanski tonight. Yet I did want to send along a playlist for Polanski that might lend itself towards encouraging a little incarceration introspection. I atoned today, why shouldn't he?
