Roman Polanski Extradition Bid Rejected by Top Polish Court

6 December 2016 4:37 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — A bid by the U.S. to extradite Roman Polanski has been rejected by Poland’s Supreme Court.

The decision brings to an end efforts by the U.S. government to force Polanski to face justice for having had sex with a 13-year-old girl at a photo shoot in Los Angeles in the late 1970s. Polanski, who holds both Polish and French citizenship, is now free to live and work in Poland.

In May, Poland’s Justice Minister, Zbigniew Ziobro, had appealed to Poland’s Supreme Court to overturn a lower-court ruling that the director should not be sent to the U.S.

“We are very happy that the case is finally over,” one of Polanski’s lawyers, Jan Olszewski, told Reuters. “We hope that this ruling becomes a stimulus for the American side to perhaps use existing legal opportunities to issue a ruling in absentia and consider the penalty served. »

Moby Dick

26 November 2016 1:53 PM, PST | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

I have a back file of reader notes asking for a Blu-ray for John Huston’s Moby Dick, and more pointedly, wondering what will be done with its strange color scheme. I wasn’t expecting miracles, but this new Twilight Time disc should make the purists happy – it has approximated the film’s original, heavily muted color scheme.

Valley of the Dolls

27 September 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

High camp or just plain trash? A cultural-cinematic swamp in perfectly rotten taste, this adaptation of Jacqueline Susann's supermarket 'dirty book' seeks out tawdry sleaze like no American movie had before. Junk beyond belief, and great entertainment if you're in a sick frame of mind.
