Roman Polanski thanks NYFF for the KNIFE IN THE WATER screening that launched his career
“now i am an old jerk, and you at 50 are still vibrant, relevant, and as important to filmmakers around the world as you were when we first met.”
say what you will about the man (somewhere else, please), but dude sure knows how to read a cue card underneath some smooth jazz. as for Knife in the Water? it still holds up as one of the greatest feature debuts in film history / one of the greatest feature debuts in film history that’s in desperate need of a Criterion blu-ray.
