During a crisis of conscience, who doesn’t wonder, “What would Woody do?” Well, thankfully, he didn't keep us waiting. The Polanski thing had me all confused until I heard about Woody's explanation and petition. I now understand pedophiles fall into two entirely separate categories: Those who make movies and those who don’t.
I could practically hear the “Don’t do us any favors,” groan when the Polanski camp learned they got a moral pass and high-five from Allen. The publicist screaming into the phone, “Idiot! When I said get Alan, I meant Alan Alda!”
One can debate whether this effort to bring Polanski to justice has been worth the effort and expense. But as to what led up to this in the first place, I don’t think there’s any room for argument at all.
