  1. I've only seen Chinatown, The Pianist, Rosemary's Baby, and The Ghost Writer. I would put them in that order. Of the four, I felt Ghost Writer didn't live up to the hype. I felt the "bad guy" was almost immediately obvious, so waiting for the inevitable reveal made the film drag slightly for me. Add to this a silly ending and the film didn't end up impressing me like his other three did.

    1. Very good order! What i really liked about The Ghost Writer is Polanski's mise en scène and his mastery. The plot isn't that fresh but the execution is flawless.
