It's clear from Polanski's cramped frames that [director] Chapa knows as little about filmmaking as he does his subject.

Peter Sobczynski

To describe the film as this generation's "Wired" hardly begins to scratch the surface. This is a movie so bad that the people who actually made "Wired" can actually look down upon it without coming across as hypocritical.

This Friday the 13th Los Angeles vanity release isn't even fun in a bad-movie way.

John P. McCarthy
Boxoffice Magazine

Ambitious in an obsessive, stalkerish sort of way, Damian Chapa‚(TM)s low-budget biopic of Roman Polanski is avowedly empathetic and thus not a complete hatchet job.

Though it's a near thing, the movie isn't quite bad enough to qualify as a classic tone-deaf vanity production.

A jumbled, whorish, opportunistic hot mess, multi-hyphenate Chapa's film is a fantastically terrible biopic, poorly told and riddled with repeated, confounding lapses in logic.
