Talent Does Not Mean Good Political Thought

>> Thursday, October 01, 2009

In case the Polanski itself doesn't convince you that good politics/morals and major artistic talent have much to do with each other, I note that while people like Martin Scorsese, Ethan Coen and (natch) Woody Allen are on the wrong side of the issue, the likes of Luc Besson and Jewel haven't decided to become ad hoc rape apologists. Although it's nice to see cases where major artistic talent and intelligent moral and political analysis go together, it wouldn't be wise to expect it.
