    Knife in the Water is pretty exceptional, and for the most part extremely low-key, yet creepy, suspenseful, and effective all the same.

      although not Knife. It sounds good, I'll have to check that out. I loved Chinatown, it's a great film. (Tess too, imo). But others I've seen (his apartment trilogy, for example), not so much.

      I get that he's considered a genius filmmaker. For good reason, I'm sure. I don't hate Roman Polanski, I just don't care for his directorial style in most cases (so far). It has little to do with his private life, although that doesn't help.

        And he's got his fair share of clunkers, too.  Polarizing figure, has handled his legal case poorly and I get that people dislike him both for personal reasons and aesthetic ones.
