Having recently watched a film by Roman Polanski..I began to wonder..Do you find it difficult to (details)
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?
