LIFE'S WORK: THE FILMS OF ROMAN POLANSKI - Chapter 5: REPULSION: The Dark Side of Desire

A video essay written and narrated by Kim Morgan and edited by Matt Zoller Seitr Press Play Contributors Roman Polanski knows women because he understands men. He knows both sexes because he understands the games both genders play, either consciously or instinctively. He understands the perversions formed from such relations and translates them into visions that are erotic, disturbing, humorous and, most important, allegorical in their potency. One should not (as so many did with his misunderstood Bitter Moon) take Polanski's films entirely literally, for they are often heightened versions of what occurs naturally in our world: desire, perversion, repulsion.
