“I’m a former Marine. Spilled 3 pints of blood on account of a suicide bomber. I fought for the 100%, but only the 1% benefited. I’ll be protesting in my city.”

In a new documentary, Roman Polanski: A Film Memoir, that premiered at the Zurich Film Festival this week, the award-winning director and bail-jumping fugitive apologized to Samantha Greimer, the woman he raped back in 1977: “She is a double victim: My victim, and a victim of the press.”
