Over the weekend I visited a haunted house. The whole experience was great fun. See that? I said it was "FUN." In fact, all signs point to everyone having a great time, giggling and laughing between screams and squeals, which got me to thinking.
While watching Roman Polanski's The Pianist, chances are we aren't expecting to find humor, much less to laugh. Take, for instance, the scene in which the German SS throw a disabled man out a window to his death.
