Louis Malle = Pretty Baby
Martin Scorcese = Taxi Driver
Adrian Lyne = Lolita
Roman Polanski = Needs no explanation
Victor Salva = Same as above

That is correct, except for Salva, who molested a boy.
Taxi Driver and Lolita? Really?
The idea of 12-14 year old girl actresses playing prostitutes/sexual objects is more than a little disturbing to me.
You conflated the creators of fiction about a pathology to actual perpetrators of that pathology. That’s what’s disturbing. Not to mention the fact that both Taxi Driver and Lolita (the novel anyway) are revered American classics. Jodi Foster was doubled by her older sister in the more suggestive stuff in TD.
