One of the things that I realized, reading through this Polanski thing, is that I've managed to miss all of his 'brilliant' and 'artist' movies without feeling as though I've been deprived of anything. Haven't seen Rosemary's Baby
or The Pianist
. Went through him at IMDB and haven't seen a single thing he's made.
I didn't actually know that he was a rapist when I didn't get around to seeing those movies (I didn't know until this news story broke) - and there are only a few directors that I can name - but I'm glad, all the same, that I've managed to accidentally never help his career.Smallville
is on tonight. I found last week's episode to be utterly delightful, with character development and interesting new people and lots of very pretty shots. I hope the trend continues.Dollhouse
is also on and I loved this season's premiere of that as well - thrilling and inspiring of many deep thoughts, plus there was fun shippy squee involved. ( tiny vague spoilers )
