enjoy a film on its own merit when the director does something that you see as unforgivably criminal? I mean, yes, the work -should- be divorced from the man who directed it/wrote it and so forth..but I couldn't help feeling as if I was in some way condoning his right to walk freely and continue living his life when I strongly condemn average people for doing what he did. I guess the question is two-fold, in light of this. Do you think we let people who are famous get away with things we would otherwise condemn if it was done by a an average person?

the average joe would never been allowed to leave the country and escape punishment for what he did to that young girl, at the same time you have to wonder why her mother allowed her to be alone with this pervert to begin with.

If I had my way, everything film-related he had ever created would be gathered and destroyed. Never to be shown again.

This is a thoughtful set of questions.<br />
<br />
I don't especially care for this director's work.<br />
<br />
When you study various art forms in general, you tend to discover through reading biographies or interviews with their contemporaries that many artists were as most of us, flawed individuals. Sometimes they merely shunned the social conventions of their time, and sometimes their behavior or ideas were outrageous, or considered criminal in their lifetimes. If their life's work has any merit, it lives on while details about the artist's personal life (however repugnant) tend to be forgotten. There are some exceptions, of course.<br />

Good clarification from hereforthebeer.

yes<br />
<br />
what I find that is more disturbing is that he hid in Europe for many years and still continued to make movies and everyone knew about his past. <br />
<br />
And the entertainment community continued to hold him up as an 'artist' and a cult hero.<br />
<br />
What kind of organization or what kind of culture would put a man on a pedestal knowing what they know about him. I guess it seems to be ok as long as he makes good movies and makes money. Hollywood is perverted.
