Critic Reviews for Polanski (Polanski Unauthorized)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

It's clear from Polanski's cramped frames that [director] Chapa knows as little about filmmaking as he does his subject.

Top Critic

This Friday the 13th Los Angeles vanity release isn't even fun in a bad-movie way.

Top Critic

Though it's a near thing, the movie isn't quite bad enough to qualify as a classic tone-deaf vanity production.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

To describe the film as this generation's "Wired" hardly begins to scratch the surface. This is a movie so bad that the people who actually made "Wired" can actually look down upon it without coming across as hypocritical.

Ambitious in an obsessive, stalkerish sort of way, Damian Chapa‚(TM)s low-budget biopic of Roman Polanski is avowedly empathetic and thus not a complete hatchet job.

Boxoffice Magazine

A jumbled, whorish, opportunistic hot mess, multi-hyphenate Chapa's film is a fantastically terrible biopic, poorly told and riddled with repeated, confounding lapses in logic.

Audience Reviews for Polanski (Polanski Unauthorized)

I made the mistake at thinking this was a biography. Yes, it was portrayed as one, but it was filmed like a college student had the camera. The acting was no different, maybe because of the director looking over himself as the lead role. Should have left that big of a decision to Clint Eastwood.

Wether its accurate timeline or even events doesnt justify this mess of a ducumentary, it just comes down to cheap porn.

Cheap and choppy, empty but accurate. I especially enjoyed the Devil's appearance. Worth seeing. Is Polanski's life not strange, are his films not baffling? His life and films are weird and mysterious as though another powerful darker force is propelling him along.
