    schema:description ""Polanski is one of the most talented and distinguished of modern filmmakers. A well-informed cultural traveller, interested in the position of the outsider, he is hard to pigeonhole: he moves easily between mass audience and art-house tastes, between settings and genres; his films, from Two Men and a Wardrobe, through The Tenant and Cul-de-Sac, Chinatown and Rosemary's Baby, to the Pianist and Oliver Twist, represent diverse characters and cinematic influences. Like a magpie, he is interested in everything he encounters, but then easily discards his treasure and moves on. Covering all Polanski's film as director, Ewa Mazierska addresses the eclecticism, ambiguity and paradoxes of his cinema, while seeking out the common elements in his films. From a number of perspectives, she examines the autobiographical effect of Polanski's films in terms of violence, travel and voyeurism. She explores his characters and narratives, the place of absurdism, surrealism and the 'double life' of things in his cinema; the function of music, of religion, power, patriarchy and racism in the films. She looks at Polanski's literary adaptations and at his use and subversion of film genres. Herself a Polish émigré, she uncovers Polanski's Polish roots and the extent of their influence on the cinema of the mercurial filmmaker, at large in the world."--Publisher's description."@en ;
