The 2008 HBO documentary,Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desiredfeatures interviews from many who were involved in the case, including David Wells, a retired deputy district attorney. In the film Wells claims that he told the media-obsessed judge that he could go back on the plea-bargain agreement. Recently, Wells admits that he lied during the documentarybecause he didn’t think the film would reach the United States and “thought it made a better story”.

Even 32 years after this case, we still have those involved in the situation lying. We still have unreliable accounts of the judicial process, which ultimately failed during this whole ordeal, present and past.
