You Lie!

Polanski Doc Director 'Perplexed'

No one was taken more by surprise by former Los Angeles prosecutor David Wells' statement that he lied on camera than Marina Zenovich, the director who interviewed him for her documentary, Desired, about Roman Polanski. The revelation, as told to The Daily Beast's Marcia Clark, left Zenovich "perplexed" and wondering why Wells had not confessed prior to Polanski's return to the headlines. In the film, Wells says that he spoke to the judge handling Polanski's case in 1978 and said that the filmmaker deserved prison time. Now, Wells says that was a lie. Zenovich's statement closes by saying "It is a sad day for documentary filmmakers when something like this happens."
