Brett Ratner, the director of the "Rush Hour" films and, most recently, "Tower Heist," isn't someone who you would imagine as being BFFs with Roman Polanski, the arty filmmaker behind such classics as "Chinatown" and "Rosemary's Baby." But this is exactly the case. The two have been great friends for a very long time (Polanski even co-starred in "Rush Hour 2") and their latest collaboration is "Weekend of a Champion," the commercial re-release of a 1971 racing documentary that Polanski produced and co-starred in but was barely released at the time. The doc follows racing legend Jackie Stewart at the height of his racing prowess (and in the midst of his intense friendship with Polanski), and the results are kind of like a documentary version of Ron Howard's recent drama "Rush."
