Remember 1990s B-movie star Damian Chapa, from cult classics like Under Siege and Blood In Blood Out? Well, he's still at it, and now he's directing/producing his own projects. His latest is the Roman Polanski biopic, Polanski Unauthorized. Not really sure why someone sets out to make a low-budget and unauthorized biopic about a legendary filmmaker who is still very much alive. I'm even less sure, after watching the film's trailer:

Meanwhile, the film is getting an L.A. release this weekend. Todd McCarthy's Variety review says: "With production values no better than homemade porn -- most scenes are played in front of drapes -- and dialogue that makes you feel sorry for the actors, this Friday the 13th Los Angeles vanity release isn't even fun in a bad-movie way. Paying customers will feel gypped." I think we need to have a screening in New York, stat!

    and the hollywood click who is trying to destroy a brilliant film.

    homemadePORN, well it would have been better if polanski would have filmed his own version of "pedifile rapist" fugitive

    TALENT does not excuse his CRIME against a child who thirty YRS later wants the limeLIGHT or the limeLIGHT 2 STOP

    I went to see Secret of the Grain in L.A. last weekend and this trailer came on - I personally had no idea who he was supposed to be playing until someone says Roman Polanski, but the old couple in front of me thought they had walked into the wrong theater since the trailer feels eternally long. My only guess is that they're hoping to have the enduring success of "The Room."
