WARNING - SERIOUS BUSINESS.
* The following movie-related people are among those who have signed a petition to protest the arrest of Roman Polanski. I will no longer spend money on their works.
Woody Allen (well, I've been boycotting him since Soon-Yi)
Guillermo del Toro (I don't think I can ever watch Pan's Labyrinth again)
Harrison Ford (WHY?)
Terry Gilliam (sob)
Jeremy Irons (he played Humbert Humbert)
Wong Kar Waï
Kristin Scott-Thomas (nooo)
Emma Thompson! noooooooooooooooooooo!
Wow, that's quite a few folks. Makes me sad. At least Luc Besson is okay.
I'm SUPER stressed right now, and usually the cure involves watching movies. I don't think I can.
ETA: Some more folks are in the Okay With Me column:
Allison Anders (weird aside: I was just last week trying to think of the female director from "Four Rooms")
Jesse Eisenberg - yay, Zombieland is go!
Neil Gaiman - thank you!!!
Javier Grillo-Marxuach - phew, going to Best Buy to pick up The Middleman
Greg Grunberg - psychic guy from Heroes
